Ray Lewington shuffled his depleted deck of cards, still missing its ace of spades as far as the current situation goes in Sean Dyche, and also without the suspended Bryjar Gunnarsson, and came up with a 4-4-2 formation with four changes in personnel from the QPR game. Jack Smith came in for the hapless Jermaine Darlington. Lloyd Doyley returned to the fray, along with Danny Webber and Neal Ardley and we settled down to see what Watford were made of.
BSAD report: With Keith Scott back at Norwich and Devon White back at Notts County, we have only Gifton Noel-Williams available to play the conventional centre forward role. And even Gifton’s not really that conventional (plus he’s only seventeen and deserves some time and patience to adapt to senior football). So, after all last season’s finger-pointing over Glenn Roeder’s inability to bring strikers to Watford, we’re back to playing short-arses up front – on this occasion, it was Tommy Mooney and Kevin Phillips.
