On this date in Watford FC's history

The menacing start to the season that had seen the Hornets win 12 and draw three of their first 15 league games was conclusively banished to memory as a Watford side utterly devoid of confidence went down 2-1 to Huddersfield Town at Vicarage Road.
A lamentable Huddersfield side, destined to be relegated at the end of the season, gave Watford plenty of chances including a bizarre own goal, but Delroy Facey's poorly defended goal sealed the win and confirmed a miserable Christmas for Watford fans.
