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.

It was a day for breaking new ground. Watford’s first game in Division One was against a team they had never faced before.
