Kevin Lisbie gave Derby the lead against the run of play when he raced onto Adam Bolder’s pass and trickled a low shot into the far corner.

Marlon King fired the Hornets level with a smart finish from 18 yards and later hit the post as the home side poured forward.

But Giles Barnes slid in to put the Rams ahead before Bangura made it 2-2 with a fine shot deep in injury-time.

BSAD imageBSAD report: At various points, it was a game that we wanted to win, were winning, and should’ve won. Apart from the second, these states were more theoretical than anything else, however, as we were never good enough to overcome determined and organised opponents: we should be frustrated by our failure to preserve the lead for five more minutes, but that lead would’ve been the result of evading justice and heading out on the highway with our ill-gotten gains. Which would’ve been fun, clearly, and a reward for sitting through such a monotonous, mundane football match. A point is hardly a disastrous alternative, though.

At one o’clock I arrived in Watford, and one could smell the whiff of optimism around the area, predictions that it was three points in the bag for the Hornets due to the fact that Brighton had been labelled “relegation candidates” this year. Almost fifteen thousand tickets had been sold, ensuring the game would have an electric atmosphere. And both sets of fans were in good voice, obviously keyed up for the day’s game.

14th February 2004- New Division One, Watford 2 Preston North End 0

BBC SportHameur Bouazza scored on his full debut to set up Watford’s victory against Preston at Vicarage Road.

BSAD imageSo, Preston then. And as I struggle to remember the game’s various events and talking points, one thing is clear above all. This was a good thing.  Not just the performance (although it was surely one of the best of the season, if not the best) but for the number of factors that gave the more optimistic supporter something to smile about.
