14th March 2015- Championship, Watford 4 Reading 1

Referee: Darren Bond
Attendance: 16,660

Watford moved into the second automatic promotion place in the Championship with a comfortable win over Reading.

Goals from Almen Abdi, Matej Vydra, Troy Deeney and Fernando Forestieri ensured the Hornets remained level on points with Middlesbrough and Bournemouth at the top of the table, but Slavisa Jokanovic’s men moved into the automatic promotion places having scored more than Boro.

Watford would have been looking to make a strong start against a weakened Reading – Steve Clarke having made nine changes with Monday’s FA Cup quarter-final replay against Bradford very much in mind – and they took the lead with 53 seconds on the clock.

14th March 2009- Championship, Watford 2 Sheffield Wednesday 2

Francis Jeffers was Sheffield Wednesday’s hero as his last minute penalty earned his side a 2-2 draw at Watford. The two in-form sides played out an entertaining spectacle at Vicarage Road that saw Marcus Tudgay head Wednesday into the lead, only for Mark Beevers’ own goal to give Watford parity going into the break. Jobi McAnuff thought he had done enough to earn the Hornets a maximum haul when he headed home after the interval, but it was Jeffers that held his nerve at the death to give Brian Laws’ side a share of the spoils.

I made the mistake of suggesting to ig after about an hour that the ref was doing OK.  The ref then proceeded to lose it completely… Jeffers staying on after kicking Loach was extraordinary, Wood’s yellow card utterly implausible (if he fouled Priskin it was long before the covering defenders arrived), Cowie had a penalty shout ignored and plenty of controversy surrounded Wednesday’s late goal….

BSAD imageBSAD report: Just mindless, senseless violence. I’d hoped we’d seen the last of scenes like this in English football grounds – so-called supporters, some barely out of nappies, raining missiles down onto the heads of the defenceless fans below. Sickening to watch.

Still, I guess it’s our fault for giving out a thousand paper aeroplanes in the first place. But how were we to know that these innocuous adverts for BSaD’s forthcoming “Luddite Edition” would be used to wage such vicious war? How could we have guessed that, as the first half crawled mercilessly onwards, plane after plane would ascend towards the roof of the Vic Road end before plummeting point-first onto some poor, unsuspecting punter’s bonce? Look, we’re sorry, okay?
