BBC SportCoventry striker Leon Best scored twice late on to help his side stage a stirring comeback and beat Watford.

BHappy imageThis was, of course, what we were always at risk of with our thin and inexperienced squad. The continued absences of Helguson, Demerit and (effectively) Severin deprive us of experience where we have little to spare; the additional absences of Ellington, Jenkins, Cathcart and (ultimately) Hodson left us looking very sparse indeed. But it’s lack of nous that’s the issue really… there’s no way that points should have been dropped from half time onwards against a lamentable Coventry City side.

Roberto Martínez hailed a “perfect” Watford performance after the Hornets ended his Swansea side’s 16-game unbeaten run and extricated themselves from the relegation zone with an exemplary performance of counterattacking.

The touchline duel between the Championship’s bright young things was resolved decisively last night in favour of Brendan Rodgers. In aesthetic terms this match was occasionally a spit and sawdust affair, and while Rodgers is a man with few mannerisms to extend the Wild West anaolgy any further, he has conditioned his team to act like ruthless gunslingers.

Swansea missed the chance to move into the play-off places after they were beaten 2-0 away at struggling Watford.

First-half efforts from strikers Tamas Priskin and Tommy Smith was enough to claim all three points for Brendan Rodgers’ men.

I’m not going to tell you this was a Swansea side tired from their impressive endeavors against Fulham at the weekend. Neither am I going to say that this was a Swansea side having a bad day.  

This was quite simply an immense performance from the ‘Orns. Easily the best of Brendan’s reign so far and probably the most impressive I’ve seen from us since the Playoff annihilation of Palace at Selhurst. We were just wonderful.

18th October 2008- Championship, Southampton 0 Watford 3

Watford goalkeeper Richard Lee saved two penalties to ensure his side were comfortable winners at Southampton. Lee brought down David McGoldrick but made amends by saving the spot-kick and Tamas Priskin compounded the miss by stabbing the opener for Watford. Saints won their second penalty when Adrian Mariappa fouled Ryan Smith but Paul Wotton was also denied by Lee.

Jon Harley put in a deep cross from the left which was met by Mathew Sadler who laid the ball into the path of Priskin and he stabbed the ball home from inside the penalty area.

Form and a glance at the teamsheet suggested that a painfully young Southampton side might cause us a few problems going forward, but a back four with an average age of nineteen was there to be pressured and bullied.

The 100 Greatest Watford Wins- No.87: It was somehow fitting that this bizarre match at the St Mary’s Stadium turned out to be the last Watford victory Aidy Boothroyd presided over. Of all Boothroyd’s ugly but glorious triumphs, this was one of the most eventful. Richard Lee saved two penalties, the first in the second minute, and the Hornets managed to put the game beyond doubt before half-time.
