BBC SportA moment of madness by Millwall’s Kevin Muscat helped Watford on their way to their first League win of the season.  Muscat conceded a penalty, and was sent off, for stamping on Danny Webber in the Millwall area in first-half injury-time.

BSAD imageBSAD report: The concern about our start to the season, therefore, was not so much that the results themselves might prove to be disastrous. And it certainly wasn’t that the performances suggested that nine months of thankless struggle were inevitable. There was – is – nothing that can’t be salvaged, apart from the still dreadful events of 9th August.

BBC SportWatford won this Carling Cup first-round clash against Bournemouth after extra time at a sombre Vicarage Road.

guardianWatford fans came to pay their respects to Jimmy Davis, who died in a car crash on Saturday, and the football seemed almost irrelevant. But after 108 minutes of stalemate, on came Scott Fitzgerald to slide in at the far post and, with his first touch, settle the tie.

BBC SportJoint probe launched into trouble

Luton Town pulled off a shock Worthington Cup first round giant killing act at bitter rivals Watford in a match marred by scenes of violence.

guardianDouble probe into Watford violence

BSAD imageBSAD report:Police vans are parked all along Vicarage Road, and the stadium is blocked off completely to contain trouble at the Red Lion corner. We retreat to avoid the rising tension among the gathering crowd behind the police line, taking a safer route around the allotments. We arrive, entering the Rookery to see a mob from the away end marauding in front of the lower Rous. The atmosphere is poisonous. The mob surges, recedes, surges again, bored by the lack of resistance. A lone lunatic attempts to jump into the Rous near the halfway line to fight, taking no notice of the children around his chosen target; the corner flag is used as a missile; someone takes a kicking; a group of self-appointed moral defenders charges up the touchline from the Rookery to take on the invaders. It’s madness. There are no police inside the ground.

BSAD imageBSAD report: One final first team outing for Nigel Gibbs – applauded on arrival by everyone in the ground, including the Gillingham players – was worth the price of admission alone, even if he was required to spend ten minutes looking awkwardly out of place at left back. A broad grin on hitting a pass so firmly that even Anthony McNamee couldn’t catch up with it betrayed his enjoyment of the occasion, and it was an enjoyment widely shared. Nigel Gibbs has been a great player for Watford Football Club for twenty years. There need be no further explanation.
