BBC SportScunthorpe picked up a second league win of the week to cause an upset as Watford’s fine form came to an end.

TelegraphThe script suggested a leisurely stroll for the hosts. Starting the campaign among the favourites for relegation has galvanised Watford without the burden of expectation.

23rd October 1993- New Division One, Watford 4 Bolton Wanderers 3


BSAD imageBSAD report: At the time, Bolton were in one of their “riding high in Division 1” seasons, as opposed to a relegation dogfight in the Premier League.

100 greatest100 Greatest Watford Wins- No.29: Only 7,492 supporters turned up to see Watford take on Bolton Wanderers. With 25 minutes still to play and their team 3-0 down, some of the home supporters voted with their feet. The ground was emptying fast.  It had been a terrible performance and the Hornets showed no sign of making it respectable, let alone mounting the most remarkable comeback Vicarage Road has ever seen.
