2nd April 1996- New Division One, Watford 3 Sunderland 3

The fact that I saw about two dozen Sunderland fans for every Hornet on the way to the ground seemed to be a fair reflection of the states of the two clubs – one Premiership-bound, the other way adrift at the bottom. I’ll be quite honest – I didn’t fancy this one at all, especially after getting stuffed at Wolves. I’d rather boil my head than see us get slaughtered in meaningless games, so I wasn’t looking forward to the game one bit.
