guardianWatford do things differently. Appointing Aidy Boothroyd started it. He came untainted with failure and had his own ideas. After instant success and equally instant fall, their faith is undimmed. So is his. “I’m blessed for talent,” he said after victory put them top of the table for a few hours, “blessed now with five strikers.”

BHappy imageEarly goals are kinda handy in setting a positive tone… might have been a bit edgier otherwise.

BBC SportDamien Francis broke Ipswich Town’s defiance with a late winner in this FA Cup fifth-round tie at Vicarage Road.

guardianFor Watford the mixed double of reaching an FA Cup final while being relegated remains a possibility although on the evidence of this error-strewn fifth-round victory over Ipswich their chances of staying in the Cup are only marginally better than their prospects of remaining in the Premiership, and those are slim indeed.

TelegraphJoe Mercer used to say, when captain of Arsenal, that any true professional should be at the point of exhaustion by the final whistle. No team I have recently seen more epitomised this maxim than Ipswich when undeservedly losing to Watford.
