8th March 2005- Championship, Watford 0 Nottingham Forest 2

Kris Commons scored twice against Watford to earn Nottingham Forest three key points in their relegation battle.

The physical presence of Forest’s defence made life difficult for Watford, though, and the closest Ray Lewington’s team came to hitting the target was when Johnnie Jackson steered his header wide from an awkward angle.

“Stumble-john”, or “blunderer”, sums up the Watford performance fairly well, granting naive Nottingham Forest fans blind optimism in the hope that they may well avoid relegation after all.


8th March 1987- Division One, Watford 2 Everton 1

Finally another top flight win over the Toffees.  We had, of course, beaten Everton 2-0 in our very first game in Division One in August 1982.  Since then we’d faced them 9 times losing 8 and drawing once.  So this win, in front of the Match Of The Day Live cameras, was particularly satisfying.
