Ten-man Hornets dig deep to fight off Terriers challenge

Whatever happens to Watford between now and the end of the season, the second half at Vicarage Road this afternoon is likely to be remembered for a long time as the Hornets called on all their battling qualities to beat Huddersfield Town 4-2 after playing out the last 25 minutes with ten men.

The Hornets were in the ascendency at half-time after Troy Deeney had kept up his superb scoring run at home to net the opener following a pin-point pass from Daniel Tozser.

The opening period was watchable but those inside the ground were probably unable to take their eyes off the pitch after the interval as an action-packed second 45 minutes began with Harry Bunn equalising following some indecisive Heurelho Gomes goalkeeping.

The Hornets were soon back in front as Almen Abdi made the most of a large hole appearing in the Huddersfield defence to put his side back in front, but again the Terriers fought back as Murray Wallace headed in a corner to equalise for a second time.

Within moments, the game appeared to have swung further in Huddersfield’s direction when Gabriel Tamas was sent off for a second yellow card, but no sooner had that happened than Keith Andrews restored his side’s advantage with a header from a corner.

Huddersfield pushed for a third leveller but the Hornets rearguard and Gomes held firm before Vicarage Road, which was rocking by full-time, was sent into jubilation in injury-time when Abdi curled in a superb fourth after the Hornets counter-attacked to excellent effect.

Following the midweek cup exit at the hands of Doncaster Rovers, Beppe Sannino, as expected, reverted very much to the team that overcame Leeds United last weekend, although there were two changes from that.

Joel Ekstrand came back into the starting XI following his three-much suspension in place of Tommie Hoban, while Ikechi Anya was preferred to Juan Carlos Paredes at right wing-back. Gabriele Angella made his 50th Hornets appearance.

Huddersfield came into the game with four points from their opening four league games and caretaker boss Mark Lillis made three changes from their last league outing, a 1-1 home draw with Charlton Athletic.

Two were enforced with Tommy Smith and Lee Peltier ruled out with groin injuries, while Lillis opted to put Nakhi Wells on the bench after his ankle injury. Their places were taken by new loan recruit Jack Robinson, fresh from joining Queens Park Rangers from Liverpool, Radoslaw Majewski and James Vaughan.

The Hornets started positively, winning a corner in the opening seconds, but it was the visitors who had the game’s first effort in the sixth minute when Bunn cut inside Tamas but fired wide from 25 yards.

The Terriers remained on the front foot and in the eighth minute Vaughan connected well with a long throw from the right but put it over the top.

Fernando Forestieri did have the ball in the net soon after, but the assistant’s flag was already up for offside. Moments later though, Forestieri led the charge on a counter-attack, beating his man for pace by the left touchline before cutting inside where he was felled towards the edge of the Huddersfield penalty area. Referee Neil Swarbrick let play continue as Deeney spread the ball to the right side of the 18-yard box where Anya advanced before dragging his shot across the face of goal.

The official was involved again in the 12th minute, booking Joel Lynch for a foul on Gianni Munari near the halfway line. The free-kick was taken by Tozser, who picked out an unmarked Deeney coming in towards the far post and he headed down and wide of the far post.

Watford’s man-of-the-moment was to make no mistake with his next effort though, timing his run perfectly to latch onto a Tozser through ball which bisected a square Terriers backline and drawing Alex Smithies off his line to slide home his 12th goal in as many games at Vicarage Road and make it 1-0.

The goal was also Deeney’s 60th in the league for the Hornets, making him only the 13th player in the club’s history to achieve the landmark.

Daniel Pudil was fortunate to escape further punishment for launching Conor Coady into the air with a mistimed challenge before Majewski fired wide of Gomes’ near post from outside the area as the visitors sought to get back on terms.

Deeney was clearly in the mood though, and he nearly doubled his and his team’s tally in the 22nd minute when he showed his strength to hold off a defender as he broke into the area before clipping his attempted finish into the side netting.

It was then Forestieri’s turn to demonstrate his trickery again, showing skill inside the 18-yard box to bring the ball onto his right foot before seeing his attempted finish deflected wide of the near post.

Town were still having their moments and Gomes was forced to go to ground to parry a well-struck Majeswki shot in the 26th minute, before the Hornets managed to clear their lines.

However, the Hornets keeper needed a linesman’s flag to come to his rescue three minutes later when, after a Jacob Butterfield shot had been blocked, Gomes could only parry a Coady 20-yard effort back into the area and Vaughan converted the rebound, only for his celebrations to be cut short by the offside decision.

The Watford keeper did better the next time he was tested, holding another a long-range effort from Butterfield as the Terriers continued with their shoot on sight policy.

Paul Dixon picked up the visitors’ second yellow card after 32 minutes for a foul on Anya and he was soon followed by Munari, who saw a card for jumping into the back of Lynch.

Deeney dragged another shot wide of the near post after being picked out by a Pudil pass, before the yellow card-fest continued as Vaughan was the next player to be cautioned for a foul on Tozer.

The Hornets created their next opportunity three minutes before the end of the opening half when a deep Pudil cross from the left broke for Anya towards the right side of the 18-yard area, but his left-footed shot was straight at Smithies.

Soon after though, Forestieri spurned an excellent chance to make it 2-0 when he put a clear header over the top after being picked out unmarked by a fine deep inswinging Tamas cross.

Deeney then struck a right-footed shot over the angle of post and bar after working a neat build-up down the right with Anya. As that move developed though, Munari was already signalling to the bench to come off as he held his hamstring and the midfielder was replaced by Andrews.

Within three minutes of the restart though, Town were level in a fashion that raised questions about the Hornets defending and Gomes in particular.

A low Sean Scannell cross from the right shouldn’t have unduly troubled Gomes, but again he parried, again it was unconvincing, those in yellow around him failed to react as the ball broke loose and Bunn swept in the follow-up to make it 1-1.

However, the visitors were to be level for only six minutes.

The Hornets got a break from a challenge on the edge of the opposition penalty are and a gaping hole appeared in the heart of the defence which Abdi strode into and calmly beat Smithies to net his first of the campaign and make it 2-1.

Gomes did well to hold a Majewski snap-shot at the other end as the game continued to ebb and flow but Town kept the pressure on as a well-positioned Tamas cleared a dangerous ball from close to his goalline.

The Hornets defender was then booked for a foul on Bunn, as was Coady after catching Abdi late soon after.

The momentum continued to be with the visitors and it took a good Gomes save to push behind a Vaughan header following a Scannell cross to keep his side in front. It wasn’t a situation that was to last for long as from the resulting corner from the right, Wallace rose highest to head past the keeper and make it 2-2.

Things quickly went from bad to worse for the Hornets as Tamas, who was already on a yellow card, stupidly clattered into Bunn near the touchline and he could have few complaints about his red card fate.

Watford appeared to be on the ropes but after Wallace had upended Forestieri 22 yards out, it took a superb Smithies save to keep out Abdi’s curling free-kick. However, the keeper was left stranded as, from the resulting corner from the left, Andrews planted a firm header over a defender on the line to put his side in front for the third time in the match.

Vaughan was replaced by the pacey Wells with 17 minutes remaining after Majewski had seen an effort deflected narrowly wide.

Hoban came on for Anya in the 76th minute before a cross from the Town left saw Scannell come in at the far post but he headed wide.

Bunn’s strong game came to an end four minutes later when he was replaced by Adam Hammill before Forestieri made way for Paredes as the hosts sought to hold on to their advantage.

Gomes was equal to a Wells shot on the turn from the edge of the area, before the substitutes were completed when Jon Stead came on for Dixon.

Six minutes of stoppage time offered the visitors further cause for encouragement in their quest for an equaliser and Gomes was again forced into action to deal with a long-range strike from Wells.

But with time running out, the Hornets broke on the counter down the right-hand side and after Tozser had laid the ball across to Abdi, he stepped inside a defender before curling home a superb fourth to send Vicarage Road into jubilation as the Hornets ensured they continued their strong start to the season.

The fourth goal was worked by Paredes, Deeney and Abdi - not as noted above. Great afternoon's entertainment - blood pressure back to normal now! Superb effort from the 10 men - would have faded last season. Beppe was spot on with the substitutions. We are irresistible going forward but the defence, although an improvement on last season, remains unconvincing.

As I said he's a red card and PK waiting to happen. He should not see the field again the rest of this season.

Really?? You must be watching a different team mate. Granted his sending off today was idiotic at best, but he is a great signing.

A strong, no nonsense, traditional centre back. Exactly what you need in this league.
Your comment is ridiculous, shows little understanding of the unglamorous job of a no frills centre back.

Unfortunately Ekstrand is our week link at the back. IMO needs to be Angella, Tamas and Hoban as a back three.

Defence was jittery,but if we'd taken the chances we could've been 2 or 3 up at the interval.
Deeney had five clear chances in the first half, and took one of them. We could have been out of sight. However, one must give him credit for leading by example when the going got tough. Very well thought out substitutions from Beppe, and magnificent support from the Rookery to cheer the lads home.

Proud to be part of the 12th (11th) man today. The Rookery saw us home today and helped us get the 3 points. Immense support in the last 10 minutes and I really think it lifted the players. (Apologies to the GT stand and Fam stand if they were also joining in but tbh it was too loud and I was a bit too tiddly to know). If only us supporters could up our game EVERY week like that.
Fantastic game. 4 wins from 5. Still haven't really been tested this season and difficult to know if we are really any good or not, but one thing is for sure we are winning games that we would have thrown away last season.
Great to see AA on the scoresheet. Love that man.
Silly, irresponsible tackle from Tamas but anyone slating him as a useless signing sees the game differently to me. I think he's been a great addition to the squad and his distribution, for a championship centre back, is quality. He's a solid centre back too. Let's hope today was a one off from him and he remains more disciplined.
Finally it's such a shame that 2.5 hours after full time, after a cracking game of football we have about 25 comments on here, but when we lose after a s**t game of football we have 75.
Speaks volumes.

Loved that today, well done the boys! Deeney was magic, Almen was wonderful, Fernando was his lively tricksy self.

Gomes though - not one for catching the ball is he?! And I'm sorry, and I love the lad, but Anya seems very one dimensional these days. All pace - no end product. Got to do more to keep his place I think.

But, I was impressed with Huddersfield and it took tenacity and great game management from the bench and the pitch to see us through. The performance of champions (dare I say....)

Really?? You must be watching a different team mate. Granted his sending off today was idiotic at best, but he is a great signing.

A strong, no nonsense, traditional centre back. Exactly what you need in this league.
Your comment is ridiculous, shows little understanding of the unglamorous job of a no frills centre back.

Unfortunately Ekstrand is our week link at the back. IMO needs to be Angella, Tamas and Hoban as a back three.
yes, his own goal and PK conceded the previous 2 weeks as well as the sending off today are truly the signs of a great CB. If you have any trouble with the words I'm using and I'll try to help, cuz you aren't bright...
I think the reaction to your comments suggest you're on your own mate.

A fantastic 3 points in a difficult situation, a game we would have lost a year ago, 2nd in the table after 5 and the only thing you can bother to lift your finger for is a rant at a defender.
and what in my "rant" was wrong?
Really?? You must be watching a different team mate. Granted his sending off today was idiotic at best, but he is a great signing.

A strong, no nonsense, traditional centre back. Exactly what you need in this league.
Your comment is ridiculous, shows little understanding of the unglamorous job of a no frills centre back.

Unfortunately Ekstrand is our week link at the back. IMO needs to be Angella, Tamas and Hoban as a back three.
yes, his own goal and PK conceded the previous 2 weeks as well as the sending off today are truly the signs of a great CB. If you have any trouble with the words I'm using and I'll try to help, cuz you aren't bright...
I think the reaction to your comments suggest you're on your own mate.

So you're either a football pioneer, leagues ahead of the rest of us or you haven't got a clue what you're talking about.

I'll go with the later.
yes, 3 consecutive games 1 OG, 1 penalty conceded, and a sending off. He's the best CB in this league we should just give him best defender of the year right now. For the Premiership too he's that good.
Your comments just confirm what everyone is thinking. You know nothing about the game at all do you?

Good win after going down to ten men but we were all over the place in large periods today. We have great individual quality which is getting us through at the moment. Weve had fortunate fixtures and i do worry against better opposition we will be found out. We have the players but i believe if we had a good manager we could be so much better.

What a fantastic game to watch! When Abdi curled in the fourth the atmosphere in the Rookery was awesome. In fact the atmosphere in the Rookery was fantastic for the last ten minutes. Going forward Deeney, Fessi and Abdi were really good today. Toszer was excellent too, as was Munari before he went off. We really missed him though and I hope his injury heals quickly as we looked far more solid without him. That said we were dodgy at the back. I don't agree with a previous post about Tamas though. I've been really impressed with him. He gives us a leader at the back and a commanding presence in the air. Was it the right decision to start him on the right of a three today? Against Leeds and Rotherham he was the central player of the three and looked more assured there. Ekstrand didn't seem comfortable in the central position either, though not to start Hoban was harsh in the extreme. Surely it has to be Angella on the right, Tamas in the middle and Hoban/Ekstrand on the left. We need to give our centre backs consistency in where they play and not keep chopping them around. Also we need to play Hoban and not drop him when he's been class for a couple of games!

This was not a faultless performance . The defence with 11 men was vulnerable. Tamas could be a great defender for us, but he has a ricket in him. His distribution vies from the brilliant to the kamikaze. The defence needs work.. if we are to achieve promotion. With all due respect to Huddersfield who came to the Vic to attack and play football, other teams will keep it tight e.g Forest.

However the performance of Troy, Fernando (for about 45 mins), Toszer and Abdi - Almen's most influential display since his injury gives grounds for confidence. And scoring 2 goals to win with 10 men ? Superb.

Sannino still has some of us to win over, but his substitutions were spot on today. The passion of the team and quality on the break and 'you break us down' when down to 10 was a tactical masterpiece. I defy even his harshest critics to say he got it wrong today.

The only issue I had was Ekstrand over Hoban, but Joel played well...so? My only other disappointment was the average/ok performance of Anya. Think after the international break that Dyer should get a chance. Small gripe as we WON.

Agree with that entirely - from the point we went down to 10 we were excellent, but for the first hour it was quite difficult to watch in a way, good players doing some very good things then undoing it with a sloppy ball, we never seemed to get anywhere near to dominating midfield which you would expect, with the players we have. Lots of positives today, particularly the atmosphere over the last 10 mins and the 4th goal, but I still feel that our season hasn't quite got going yet. Very worrying that the manager picks Ekstrand and/or Tamas in front of Hoban.

We do have great individual quality all over the pitch but the teamwork and style of play is still well short of what it should be.

Agree 100% Ekstrand is the weak link in this back three. Cannot believe Hoban was dropped today. Tamas is better than some of you give him credit for - if he cuts out the silly challenges he will be awesome. To take out the guy when the ball had already gone out was stupidity, plus no need to make the challenge near the half way line as the guy was going nowhere even if he had managed to keep the ball in play.
Great performance, bring on Charlton. Also find the stats had to believe - did they really have 26 attempts on goal? I must have nodded off at some point!

He should not see the field again the rest of this season.[/p][/quote]A fantastic 3 points in a difficult situation, a game we would have lost a year ago, 2nd in the table after 5 and the only thing you can bother to lift your finger for is a rant at a defender.[/p][/quote]and what in my "rant" was wrong?[/p][/quote]Really?? You must be watching a different team mate. Granted his sending off today was idiotic at best, but he is a great signing. A strong, no nonsense, traditional centre back. Exactly what you need in this league. Your comment is ridiculous, shows little understanding of the unglamorous job of a no frills centre back. Unfortunately Ekstrand is our week link at the back. IMO needs to be Angella, Tamas and Hoban as a back three.[/p][/quote]yes, his own goal and PK conceded the previous 2 weeks as well as the sending off today are truly the signs of a great CB. If you have any trouble with the words I'm using and I'll try to help, cuz you aren't bright...[/p][/quote]I think the reaction to your comments suggest you're on your own mate. So you're either a football pioneer, leagues ahead of the rest of us or you haven't got a clue what you're talking about. I'll go with the later.[/p][/quote]yes, 3 consecutive games 1 OG, 1 penalty conceded, and a sending off. He's the best CB in this league we should just give him best defender of the year right now. For the Premiership too he's that good.[/p][/quote]Tw4t Sleeping with the enemy

I was at today's game and for the life of me I cannot understand why he reinstated ekstrand. The defence was really stable with Hoban taking his place and today it showed ekstrand is a liability drop him and play Hoban we look more comfortable on the ball when he's playing apart from that I would have liked to have seen dyer on for Anya at half time .
Well done to the golden boys down to 10 men and still ground out a result.

This was not a faultless performance . The defence with 11 men was vulnerable. Tamas could be a great defender for us, but he has a ricket in him. His distribution vies from the brilliant to the kamikaze. The defence needs work.. if we are to achieve promotion. With all due respect to Huddersfield who came to the Vic to attack and play football, other teams will keep it tight e.g Forest.

However the performance of Troy, Fernando (for about 45 mins), Toszer and Abdi - Almen's most influential display since his injury gives grounds for confidence. And scoring 2 goals to win with 10 men ? Superb.

Sannino still has some of us to win over, but his substitutions were spot on today. The passion of the team and quality on the break and 'you break us down' when down to 10 was a tactical masterpiece. I defy even his harshest critics to say he got it wrong today.

The only issue I had was Ekstrand over Hoban, but Joel played well...so? My only other disappointment was the average/ok performance of Anya. Think after the international break that Dyer should get a chance. Small gripe as we WON.
Tamas couldn't be a brilliant defender for anyone. He's a huge liability and the defense looked worlds better once he was sent off, that will always happen when he isn't on the field. Spot on with the rest of the stuff.

Hoban did not deserve to be dropped. Not totally happy with Gomes but the back 3 made his job difficult. Still a magnificent dogged performance against what I though was a very good Huddersfield side. I do not blame the ref. for all those bookings. Having

We should have been out of sight in the first half. Need to be more clinical in front of goal. Love gomes celebration he has passion and that runs throught the team. I agree that Tommy should have started. He has been playing well. Not tamas will be suspended Tommy should get back in.

Wow what a game and what a noise! I am an upper GT stand ST with my 11 year old grandson and that normally reserved, quiet place (we aren't) suddenly erupted like a volcano and the 12th man cam into play. Fantastic, gotta be every week.
Tamas is great but has this mental aberration when he loses the ball and will hunt his man all over the pitch to take revenge. Stupid but oh the passion! We should have been at least four goals clear by half time and at then we switched of for ten minutes for the second time in that game and went deep, too deep. We lost the shape in midfield and the back line and could have paid dearly against a top side. Surprising considering Beppe prides himself on strong defensive play. But 4 out of 5, 2nd place and strength on the bench. LOVE IT, COYH, bring on Charlton
