13th December 2008- Championship, Watford 2 Coventry City 1

John-Joe O’Toole’s winner after 72 minutes gave new Watford boss Brendon Rodgers a second successive victory

The rain.  I’m not complaining;  we played the conditions much more effectively than Cov and it was a remarkably positive showing from both sides in the circumstances.  But… it didn’t seem likely that the game would finish, as late as the end of the first half.  Bonus marks to Chris Coleman for stopping short of Walker (R)’s plausible enough prediction in his post-match comments.

13th December 1997- New Division Two, Watford 1 Bristol City 1

BSAD image BHappy report: Cracking match, this. Whereas the earlier clash with Millwall, which seemed equally important at the time, proved to be a considerable anti-climax, this was an occasion that was worthy of the hype. Ironically, neither keeper had to make a save (apart from the goals, natch) – but that was only due to some outstanding defending, a reminder that the best sides are often distinguished by their resilience.
