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.
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.
