Promotion-chasing Watford beat Coventry to claim their first win in nine games. Nathan Ellington put Watford ahead when he was allowed to run into the box unchallenged and drill the ball home.

Little more than three miles away Gordon Brown and 15 heads of state were sitting down at The Grove hotel trying to put the world to rights while an event of more significance in the minds of Watford fans was being played out on a difficult pitch. At the end of it all their team somehow came away on top.

We were, it was very clear, fully aware of how fortunate we’d been and how little we could afford to throw it away again. It has come to that: eleven men behind the ball to hang on grimly against a team in the bottom half. But if that’s what it takes….

Or indeed, if the excellent Tommy Smith had been able to nudge an incoming cross under rather than over the bar from six yards out when it came to him in the first minute.
