BBC SportWatford will meet Leeds in the Championship play-off final after cruising past a lacklustre Palace.

guardianAdrian Boothroyd faces the threat of being banned from the touchline for the play-off final against Leeds United, comfortably the biggest game of his brief managerial career, after being sent to the stands last night following a mass brawl in front of his dugout. The Watford manager sparked mayhem midway through the second half when he flicked the ball away from Fitz Hall with a hand as the Crystal Palace defender sought to take a quick throw-in.

BSAD imageBSAD reports: There is an air of something approaching hysteria inside Vicarage Road.

Immense. Amazing. Rock solid. Tense. Iron-willed. Undefeated.  Just some of the words we used, once we’d calmed down, to describe the fight on the touchline which was triggered by maybe a little too much management of the game and, in particular, the ball. But if we focus on that, we’ll be overlooking a job done with just as many of the qualities as we brought to the 60th-minute melee.

BBC SportA Heidar Helguson brace piled the pressure on struggling Forest.  The Iceland international converted two almost identical headers taking his season’s tally to six.  He gave Watford the lead on 20 minutes when he met Neal Ardley’s free-kick at the near post, and the pair combined seven minutes later for a second.

BSAD imageBSAD report: We all know that Heidar is a bit of a nutter. Affectionately dubbed in my part of the Rookery as the “puffin eater”, our Icelandic warrior has never been scared to put his head where most people would not put their feet and on occasions defies all sorts of scientific logic with his ability to just keep charging around like a maniac for far longer than one thinks humanly possible.
