Watford’s Danny Webber – on loan from Manchester United – inspired a five-goal demolition of hapless Coventry City at Vicarage Road.

BSAD report: Personally, I would’ve been quietly pleased with a point. A return to stability, to steady progress towards wherever-we’re-hoping-to-end-up. A draw, especially if we’d managed to score in the process, would’ve been all right, really. Not too bad. We would’ve been slightly reassured after the savage defeat at Fratton, and could’ve looked forward with renewed semi-enthusiasm to a season of predictable results, mid-table comfort, steady improvement. For now, I’m content with looking to the long-term, always understating short-term hopes.

100 Greatest Watford Wins- No.91: The Coventry game was live on Sky and despite the turmoil in the background the Hornets managed to put on a five-star show for the cameras. Webber’s movement was exemplary. He caused problems for Calum Davenport and Steve Walsh and forced the Sky Blues player-manager, Gary McAllister, to change his formation to protect his hapless defenders.
