Watford's post-Christmas collapse in form plumbed new depths with a 3-0 defeat at home to relegation-threatened Barnsley.

Three days after the Tykes' defeat to Cardiff City in an FA Cup semi-final at Wembley they took advanatage of a lamentable Watford display, Kadoye Odejayi netting in each half.

The Hornets were to complete the season without recording another victory, losing out to Hull City in the play-off semi-finals.
