BBC SportAn injury-time equaliser from Leicester’s Dany N’Guessan denied Watford their third straight victory in an enthralling match at Vicarage Road.

TelegraphThey may need a new central defender and a couple of midfielders at Vicarage Road, but the scriptwriter is clearly still in rude health. A game with more twists and turns than the River Colne ended with points and goals, thrillingly shared.

BHappy imageOnly one place to start. Jaysus. The level of expectation associated with Helguson’s return might have been slightly moderated by his injury-burdened last few years, but only slightly. It was still wholly unreasonable to expect him to pick up where he left off, the whirling dervish focal point of the team. As it turned out he exceeded all expectations… announcing his arrival by flying into Leicester’s goalkeeper within thirty seconds and deflecting the ball narrowly the wrong side of the post.

BBC Sport Malky Mackay was denied a winning start as Watford boss after Doncaster striker James Hayter cancelled out Danny Graham’s early strike.

sky Watford’s ideas of a dream opener were quickly quashed as they drew 1-1 at home to Doncaster.

TelegraphDoncaster manager Sean O’Driscoll refused to blame the match officials but he believed his side were denied a legitimate goal during their 1-1 draw at Watford.

BHappy imageFizzle. It should, of course, be remembered that there have been less auspicious starts than this to very auspicious seasons; we all crave answers, but these early season games often raise still more questions instead. It was a bit of a non-alcoholic beer of a match: the same fizz as the bottle’s cracked open, but some bite missing from what’s inside.
