19th February 2021- Championship, Watford 2 Derby County 1

BBC Sport: Will Hughes scored against his old club as Watford beat Derby to move third and level on points with second-placed Brentford in the Championship.

Sky Sports: Watford defender William Troost-Ekong turned Nathan Byrne’s cross into his own net to reduce the deficit late on (77), before Byrne’s corner inside the final 10 minutes was kept out by a combination of the woodwork and goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann.

BHappy: Saturday’s startlingly helpful results will have buoyed Hornets’ hearts still further;  Brentford’s recent collapse in particular having looked irresistible a couple of weeks ago perhaps a warning against getting too carried but we look formidable, and at this point of the season with shallower squads than ours suffering badly we have a real opportunity.  Of our first choice eleven only perhaps Hughes and Sarr would be critical misses in isolation.  The momentum is building, the conviction and the energy that we’ve been so badly missing is there, we have the squad and we’re strong all over the pitch.

19th February 1983- FA Cup Fifth Round, Aston Villa 4 Watford 1

The Hornets travelled to Villa Park hoping to prove that they had learnt a lesson from their, previous experiences at the hands of the European champions and, to a degree, they had. But they left knowing that, as the good book says, there is a time for everything.
