Post Match

The Hornets reacquainted themselves with the Championship after a five-year absence with the sort of gritty win you need to chisel out regularly if you are going to have a real crack at navigating a way out of this notoriously difficult division.

RELIVE: Hornets beat Boro in Championship opener

There was always going to be a new look as Watford set out on life back in the second tier, but it’s fair to say the team didn’t have quite the look most fans would have hoped for.

Craig Cathcart claims scrappy Middlesbrough win will boost Watford

Defender Craig Cathcart scored the winner after 11 minutes, heading past Boro goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli.

Boro’s Britt Assombalonga came close to levelling the scores on several occasions and the visitors’ best opening came when the frontman’s curling free-kick was tipped over the bar by Hornets ‘keeper Ben Foster.

Whether Ivic can maintain the momentum rests largely on which players are sold before the transfer deadline, with Deeney and Welbeck reportedly close to joining Premier League clubs. But in young, hungry players such as Pedro and Jeremy Ngakia – making his debut at right-back following his move from West Ham – coupled with old hands such as Foster, Murray and the match-winner Cathcart, he will be hopeful of a successful first campaign in English football.

The official justifications for our many, many absences – 17, reportedly… that it’s hard to keep track tells you everything – range from injured to ill to unfit, often vague and understandably so.  There’s injured and there’s “injured”, one suspects. Twitter rumour claims that Craig Dawson has refused to play, which if true given his miserable half-arsed effort against Spurs is comparable to Andy Cole’s notorious retirement from international duty.

Relive Watford’s trip to Middlesbrough where a Jose Holebas strike sealed three points

Jose Holebas’ fine strike settled a poor game as Watford’s victory left Middlesbrough still looking for a first home win of the Premier League season.

After a goalless first half that saw Antonio Barragan escape a sending off, the midfielder curled a delightful effort into the top corner nine minutes into the second period. 

Watford had barely threatened all afternoon but took the lead with a far more convincing strike from Holebas. The Greek international stole the ball from Cristhian Stuani and lashed a shot inside Victor Valdes’ near post from 20 yards.

BBC SportTroy Deeney became the first Watford player to score 20 goals in three successive seasons as Middlesbrough lost their place at the Championship summit.

skyMiddlesbrough moved back to the top of the table with a 1-0 win over Wigan on Friday, but they were knocked off the summit within three days by Watford, who moved into pole position themselves before being usurped by Bournemouth and Norwich later on Easter Monday.

TelegraphWatford actually grew stronger as the game went on, and could have won by a wider margin than two. Even more encouraging was the way they defended the threat of Patrick Bamford, one of the Championship’s in-form strikers, who barely got a sight of goal.

guardian With his stilted English delivered in unwavering monotone, Slavisa Jokanovic – Watford’s fourth manager of the season – seems an unlikely inspiration but in these most pressured circumstances his side produced probably their most convincing display of the season.

BHappy imageAitor Karanka was later to join the ranks of managers complaining about our strike threat as if it’s some kind of unfair advantage, like a twelfth player or a bribed referee.

BBC SportScott McDonald scored a late winner for Middlesbrough as they beat 10-man Watford at Vicarage Road.  The home side took the lead when an Andre Bikey error led to Matej Vydra’s shot being parried and Troy Deeney pounced to score from close range.

BHappy imageIt’s fair to say that a quarter of an hour or so in few will have been anticipating this kind of scoreline. We were aided in no small part by the very early opening, resultant from a weak backpass from the Centre Back Formerly Known as Bikey… Vydra latched onto it, Steele blocked his shot but the ball broke for Troy Deeney to loft the ball into an empty net.
