13th March 2010- Championship, Watford 0 Peterborough United 1

Relegation-threatened Peterborough saw off fellow strugglers Watford to claim their first away win of the season.

Defeat also dragged the Hornets closer to the relegation mire, with Malky Mackay’s men having lost their last four matches. The Hornets could have no complaints and only woke up after Dickinson had found the net.

Worth remembering, first of all, that this is what this season was supposed to be like from the start. Or from the end of August, at any rate. Having sold off our most sellable assets in August the real surprise is not that we stumble to a clumsy defeat against Peterborough but that this season has lifted expectation levels to an extent that made this look like a home banker beforehand, even given our recent form.

21st September 1996- New Division Two, Watford 0 Peterborough United 0

In his programme notes Kenny Jackett writes ‘I can’t remember a time when we’ve gone so long without drawing a game’. Fate was tempted to a record breaking degree. We naturally drew this game and by the end of the season had drawn 19 league games which remains a club record. This included 9 away draws in a row, a sequence never achieved before or since in either the Football or Premier League.

BSAD report: This was a goalless draw. I could end the report there, really. I won’t, though, partly because I’m such a dedicated reporter and mainly because I’d have to find something interesting to watch on TV on a Sunday night (Heartbeat? I’d rather boil my own head).

Peterborough had been in deep trouble all season and, by the time this fixture at London Road came along, it was clear that whichever side lost would go down. Clap Your Hands summed it up simply enough – ‘you HAVE to be there, no excuses’. On the night, it seemed that about half of Watford had travelled to roar on the ‘Orns. Defeat was absolutely unthinkable.

100 Greatest Watford Wins- No.38: The London Road pitch was rutted and hard. Neither team was flush with confidence. It wasn’t an aesthetically pleasing match, it was all about heart and determination. What followed was an incredible see-saw battle that offered the hand of safety to both teams. In the end, it was Watford who grabbed on for dear life.
