Hornets goalkeeping coach Alec Chamberlain believed Tommie Hoban was the Golden Boys’ man-of-the-match in Watford’s 2-0 victory at Rotherham United last night but do you agree?
The young defender was deployed at left-back and was solid defensively and created Gianni Munari’s goal with a moment of trickery in the Millers penalty area.
Lloyd Dyer was only introduced in the 65th minute at the New York Stadium but he netted the opening goal and his pace caused the home side’s defence problems.
Another substitute, Odion Ighalo, impressed after coming on in place of Matej Vydra. The Nigerian striker held the ball up well and could have won a penalty when he was brought down in the penalty area.
Creative Italian midfielder Diego Fabbrini was included in the starting XI for the first time in the Championship this season.
He stood out in the opening period as one of the few Hornets players to look dangerous when the visitors had possession.
