Watford sit second in the Championship tonight after Matej Vydra’s 20th league goal of the season and Joel Ekstrand's first for the Hornets helped them battle to a 2-1 victory over Derby County at Vicarage Road.

Alex Geijo, Ekstrand and Ikechi Anya could, and probably should, have put Watford at least a goal in front before Vyrdra showed them how it should be done with an exquisite finish to make it 1-0 after 35 minutes.

It looked the Hornets had made the game safe midway through the second half when Ekstrand bundled in an Almen Abdi corner to score his first goal in yellow after Manuel Almunia had been forced off through injury at the end of the first period.

Although Jamie Ward halved the deficit from the penalty spot five minutes later, Gianfranco Zola’s men held on for the three points on a day when promotion rivals Hull City and Crystal Palace were both beaten and Leicester City could only draw.

It wasn’t particularly pretty at times, but the Hornets once again showed the ability to grind it and leave their automatic promotion fate in their own hands with 12 games to go as they closed the gap to five points on leaders Cardiff City.

Like for the 2-0 win at Ipswich Town on Tuesday night, Zola opted to make three changes as his side sought to go through a calendar month unbeaten for the first time this season.

Cristian Battocchio came in for Jonathan Hogg in midfield, Vydra returned for Fernando Forestieri, while Geijo started a game for the first time since the 2-0 defeat at Bristol City as Troy Deeney was rested to the bench. This meant the Hornets strikers started a match together for the first time since the 6-1 victory at Leeds United in November.

Nigel Clough made just the one change to the side that drew 1-1 against Bolton Wanderers last time out, with Ben Davies replacing Kieron Freeman at right-back.

The Hornets were quickly out of the traps and missed a great opportunity to take the lead in the sixth minute. Vydra showed superb strength and tenacity to get in between the Rams’ central defensive pairing of Richard Keogh and John Brayford and squeeze in a shot which keeper Adam Legzdins was quickly off his line to block. However, the ball ran to Geijo on the edge of the area and he tried to steer it into the unguarded net with a cushioned right-footed half-volley, only to slice it wide.

Another chance came the hosts’ way soon after when Anya’s cross from the left reached Marco Cassetti on the opposite side of the area and he struck a powerful shot which the keeper managed to parry out to safety.

Derby had been on the back foot in their opening stages but they carved out their first opening in the tenth minute when Jeff Hendrick found Ward on the right side of the area and he came back inside on his left foot before curling a shot wide of Almunia’s right-hand post.

It took a superb challenge from Keogh to prevent Vydra having a clear run on goal after almost being picked out by Geijo’s pass. The Hornets then got a little sloppy though, and were perhaps fortunate not to be punished when a Michael Jacobs shot was partially blocked and almost broke to one of three unmarked team-mates but Almunia was able to save.

After the game had gone through a quiet spell, Anya injected some life into it when he showed superb skill down the left, including a lovely flick over his own head, to break into the area. Although he was unable to pick a team-mate out with his low centre, Watford kept the attack going, which reached its next stage with Geijo setting up Vydra for a right-footed strike which was deflected behind. Almen Abdi took the set-piece from the right and his delivery was allowed to bounce in the area and run to Ekstrand who, from six yards out, blasted horribly over the top when he should at least have hit the target.

That was a bad miss by the hosts and another one was to follow in the 33rd minute. It started when Geijo received the ball near halfway with his back to goal, he turned it around the corner to Vydra, who managed to get in ahead of the Derby backline and then sprinted clear. It was perhaps a surprise the Hornets top scorer did not go it alone but he unselfishly squared to Anya, who contrived to miss a largely unguarded net from six yards out.

The Hornets had not been playing that well but could quite easily have been 3-0 up. But they were not to be so wasteful with their next opportunity in the 35th minute when the home side’s striking ace reached a significant landmark.

Again Geijo was the creator, again finding Vydra, who sprinted clear from around 40 yards out before hitting a lovely low right-footed finish from 18 yards which rebounded off the inside of Legzdins’ near post and rolled across the line before nestling in the opposite corner of the net to make it 1-0 with his 20th league goal of the campaign.

Having taken the lead, the Hornets suffered a serious blow two minutes before the break when Nyron Nosworthy played his keeper into trouble near the right side of the penalty and after tangling with Ward, Almunia went down holding his left hamstring. The former Arsenal stopper tried to continue after receiving treatment but after catching one ball, he immediately threw it into touch and signalled to the bench that he could not continue.

Jonathan Bond came on and was soon involved in the action, making a confidence-boosting solid save to hold on to Craig Bryson’s effort from the right side of the area.

Ben Davies became the first player to be booked in first-half stoppage time after scything down Vydra. Abdi’s resultant free-kick from left of centre around 22 yards couldn’t beat the wall but the ball broke for Anya, whose right-footed strike from the edge of the area was fumbled back into the box by Legzdins before the ball was hacked to safety.

Clough made a double change at the start of the second half, with Jake Buxton coming on for Michael Hoganson and new signing Chris Martin replacing Jacobs.

Conor Sammon hit an early shot wide after the restart and then Bryson saw an effort blocked around five minutes later as the Hornets found attacking opportunities hard to come by in the early stages after the resumption.

Watford’s first effort of the second period came in the 56th minute when, following a throw-in from the left, a Geijo back heel released Abdi on the left side of the area and he tried to catch Legzdins out with a toe-poke towards the near post but the keeper was not deceived.

Ward then saw yellow after leaving Anya in heap but as the half progressed, the Hornets were still struggling to get going and while not living dangerously, they weren’t making the game too comfortable for themselves either. But that looked like it had all changed in the 68th minute.

Cassetti tried an ambitious shot from a tight angle on the right side of the area following a deep Vydra cross which was deflected behind. Abdi took the set piece from the right and Ekstrand went to connect with his head, the ball appeared to strike his chest but it was still enough to take it past Legzdins and make it 2-0.

Within five minutes though, Derby were given hope when referee Mark Haywood awarded them what looked a soft penalty for an apparent push at a corner but Ward made no mistake, slamming the shot down the centre of the goal to bring it back to 2-1.

Just prior to that goal, Mason Bennett had replaced Sammon and then after the spot-kick Zola made his first change as Hogg came on for Geijo.

The Hornets could have made the points safe with 11 minutes left when Anya was sent racing clear on the left but he failed to pick out Vydra after squaring across the area. However, Vydra managed to win it back and after poleaxing Keogh with one shot, Battocchio then tried a curler from the edge of the box which wasn’t too far wide.

By the same token though, Derby were inches away from levelling when Ward slid in and only just failed to connect in the six-yard box with a Paul Coutts delivery which was fizzed in low from the right.

Watford wasted another great counter-attacking opportunity with three minutes remaining when Abdi sent Hogg away into space down the left, he squared for Vydra, but the Czech international’s first touch was poor and the chance went begging.

Vydra was replaced by Deeney for the closing stages but the Hornets were able to play most of the three minutes of injury time in the opposition half to make it three wins in succession and 13 points out of a possible 15 in a very successful February.

Another game where we could not keep the ball for long spells.

Just seen pen on sky and their player pushed their other player. Ref was very poor but I didn't enjoy Zola changing to 3-6-1 formation we had no opportunity to play the ball out and up so kept giving it back to them but they didn't really trouble our goal. I would love to sign their no 7 Coutts thought he was class but no one is on the same level as Chalobah!

Exactly, The 3-6-1 formation just invited trouble. Geijo should have been replaced by Deeney. Instead our most successful pairing wasn't given a chance. Then, instead of Hogg, move Cassetti inside to replace Battochio with Forsyth as the wing back.

Still, great result. After an indifferent start when the players were still getting to know each other, we have moved steadily up the table. Only one more mountain to climb! COYH!

Well, I remember saying that second place will come all in good time, after the Bristol City loss. It really is all about focusing on your own results and as others have said, today was a greound out result. Everyone knows about us well enough now, the biggest challenge will be staying focused and calm, and I honestly think we have the mix of players to do that. Hull and Cardiff will be big games but in this league it is more often the lower placed sides that cause the upsets - which is why I still rate this as the best league in the world. A fair chance for all on any given day - I guess the only other worry is the officiating - but this is a big win and another day for celebration. Well done all, and let us all remember, GFZ is still learning and will continue to do so - but for the benefit of the club! Great result, well done lads.

Yes, I do. But we won the league that year despite being well on top for the last third of the season and losing the last 3 games.

Still, I think we have a good chance of staying in 2nd now and perhaps even 1st place. Really classy football today, the like of which I don't think I remember seeing at Watford. In terms of who deserved to win, it was us all the way through but the last 10 minutes were very uncomfortable and we could have ended up drawing. And it shouldn't have been like that because from where I was sitting, that was never a penalty. It enabled Derby to have the upper hand late on.

But 3 more pts are in the bag and looking at the next few games, we COULD usurp Cardiff before we even play them. I think we'll all be Wolves supporters tomorrow.

What a finish from Vydra. It's that sort of class we need in order to go up. 9 points from 3 games in 7 days. A bit of rotation too, so keeping players fresh. I think the only player who needs a rest is Abdi, hopefully we can cope without him.

Even better idea which would really sell is a Udinese top with a Watford badge on it ! This would look cool
How about a shirt that is half Watford and half udinese?
I think when the bright spark who suggested a Udi shirt with B on back, he was suggesting it as our finger up to the general tripe that comes our way.

Top goalscorers in England, second place, playing great football, happy group of players and a gentleman as our manager. Suddenly those dark days of a bygone era seem just that! It is an absolutely fantastic time to be a Horns fan. We may be a small club on the edge of Olde London Towne, but I lovethis club so much. Am I still nervous? Of course, but I wouldn't want to change a thing this season.

There's only one meaning of the word.

I've happen to if been to many games of footy with a downs lad, a friend actually. Let me tell you he knows how to get behind a team. Sadly he's a hammer, but can tear it up when singing your forever blowing bubbles. At England games, he's the first to get into god save the queen.

So lets all just move on, the word Mong is a poor choice, if you knew people with downs you'd understand why. It's also a little offensive to us that have people with downs in our lives.

Knowing LD as I do, I know he would never use that word in a manner that would upset someone and definately not towards a downs person.
It's a word that was commonly used in school in the 70's and It's the first time I had heard It since.
Unfortunately some habits die hard and somewhere along the line we all upset someone in our time.

As there are two close family members who suffer with that disability, it was not what has been implied.
I'm a bit peeved that anything other was suggested as my references to monks, librarians etc should have really explained who I was talking about.
Anyway, the sooner we can all sit in our own respective areas the better.

We are not a million miles apart my friend. From my reading and enjoyment of your previous contributions it is clear that you had no intention to use the word in it's more disgusting sense. Its just that the word should really not be used because of it's potential for misinterpretation, willful or otherwise.

Just one more point on this subject, the term has been used numerous times on this forum, without reproach...strange it's one of my posts that has been singled out. Ah well I'm big and ugly enough for all of that, I suppose.

I'm convinced LD meant no offence. The concern for me is the idea that there is only room for certain people on the "bus". Football is a game for everybody, from all walks of life, all classes, ages, colours, everyone. If you don't drink and sing it doesn't mean you don't belong. Let's all enjoy this journey together.

Getting the discussion back onto the article, what actually happened to cause the ref to give them a penalty? I was in a fairly good position to see but saw nothing. None of the Derby players even claimed it. They seemed as surprised as our players.
I had the same line of vision as the referee. I saw a player go down out of the corner of my eye. I'm sure he did the same and just gave it. It's not clear on the FL show but why would Cassetti push a player to the ground off the ball like that?

We had somehow got from ".....Watford beat Derby County to go second in Championship" to a discussion about social predujices but there probably weren't any in this case.

Yes, I felt a bit uneasy about the cliques's tribal membership criteria but I thought I would gloss over that bearing in mind the potentially far more serious issue.

Each to their own - but let's just say, I can't think of anywhere I would want to be less than on that bus!

No, not clear. And, as you say, nowhere near the ball with at least 3 players all colliding at the same time. Strange that the ref could have been sure enough to award a penalty.

No mate we will have on this bus who we please and they will be like minded.
And the key is those on the bus will be supporting their side, not tutting away the afternoon.
Colour does not come into it and we are diverse as it happens, age certainly don't, drink is optional, but sitting there in mute silence is not. Ok?
We have enough people telling us how to think, we've chartered a bus, I think we can pick our guests.

Its just that the word should really not be used because of it's potential for misinterpretation, willful or otherwise.
So it's back to monks and librarians then! Glad g and k sit a fair way from each other on my iPhone keyboard so safe from my fat fingers.
Just one more point on this subject, the term has been used numerous times on this forum, without reproach...strange it's one of my posts that has been singled out. Ah well I'm big and ugly enough for all of that, I suppose.
But appreciate your comments and Big Cliff was King!
I accept what you say. It's easy to misjudge on this (as you do too by the way!). Still not a nice word though bearing in mind where it eminated from.
I'm convinced LD meant no offence. The concern for me is the idea that there is only room for certain people on the "bus". Football is a game for everybody, from all walks of life, all classes, ages, colours, everyone. If you don't drink and sing it doesn't mean you don't belong. Let's all enjoy this journey together. (And readers... get posting!)
We had somehow got from ".....Watford beat Derby County to go second in Championship" to a discussion about social predujices but there probably weren't any in this case.

Yes, I felt a bit uneasy about the cliques's tribal membership criteria but I thought I would gloss over that bearing in mind the potentially far more serious issue.

Each to their own - but let's just say, I can't think of anywhere I would want to be less than on that bus!

No mate we will have on this bus who we please and they will be like minded.
And the key is those on the bus will be supporting their side, not tutting away the afternoon.
Colour does not come into it and we are diverse as it happens, age certainly don't, drink is optional, but sitting there in mute silence is not. Ok?
We have enough people telling us how to think, we've chartered a bus, I think we can pick our guests.

LD, of course you can pick who you want for your charter. I really meant "bus" in a wider sense. My point is that everyone will be supporting their side. Your bus, the flask and blanket set, the sweet chewing set, the transistor radio listeners, the carrier bag set, the silent types, the tutters. There's room for everyone.

Harry's Bar, this is why I decided to leave it at that. Groups that try to defend themselves to this extent are obviously a bit insecure despite trying to portray the opposite. And you and I will run out of steam far quicker than they will.....like I just have.
I am in th so called group and where down the line have I upset you? So go and practise safe sex!
I don't quite understand your post but in any case, no, you haven't upset anyone, certainly not me, and your post over the weekend was particularly good. I am not judging or criticising. But I agree with Harry's Bar - we're all enjoying this together - all types, all backgrounds, shapes and sizes. I don't like shouting and singing much (I do on occassions) because I am not that type of person. I am not apologising for this nor elevating myself. What I don't like is the suggestion that because of this I am not a "proper supporter". That's all.

I wouldn't have called it a row exactly, a heated discussion maybe, and I think it's ok for the posts to digress onto other football related issues occasionally.

Yeah I realise that, but what a very good 2 fingered gesture to those that criticise us for doing nothing wrong.

Everyone is so different. Personally I have found this string of posts to be thoroughly entertaining. Well, it beats working!

Good to see there are those wanting to twist my words out of proportion. As we don't see too many in fact any where I sit Down's syndrome sufferers at our games it's obvious that is not who I was referring to, and very much the person described by Holly 68. As there are two close family members who suffer with that disability, it was not what has been implied. I'm a bit peeved that anything other was suggested as my references to monks, librarians etc should have really explained who I was talking about. Anyway, the sooner we can all sit in our own respective areas the better.
How dare you mention monks and librarians in your post.. My uncle the librarian Monk will be seeking legal advice ...

It got out there..might take some moving with our.....vocally challenged lot..but it was out there and a few hundred now know it.

We will give an airing at Wolves along with our abbreviated version of yellow!

Glad to hear that it got an airing, when I waas lucky to be able to attend I used to get a lot of strange looks for daring to shout and sing.

Glad to hear that the football is pleasing on the eye, COYH !

Glad to hear it always felt out of place when being loud.

Running the risk of being shot down in flames I cant get to games anymore but it doesnt lessen the support.

Look mate, myself and Boosey have had a chat. If you genuinely can't afford to get to a game, that's a crying shame. We will gladly help you out.
Mail me on lutondown@me.com
We're not rich or anything, but from your era, coupled with the fact we can as ST holders buy tickets for absent friends for £15 a game. Cach up and down, a few pints in West Herts club with us boys.
Don't be proud...this is help a Horn week!

Thanks for the generous offer. Working shifts makes it more difficult so will have to plan when to do it.

Hoping for a good result against Wolves tonight, COYH !
