Watford beat Barnsley to move into Championship play-off zone

Watford’s emerging status as a force towards the top end of the Championship has grown still further after they thumped Barnsley 4-1 to make it four wins in five and seven games unbeaten to rise up into the play-off places at Vicarage Road this afternoon.

Troy Deeney celebrated his 100th appearance for the Hornets by netting a brace – the second goal was his 50th in senior football – and Mark Yeates and a Matej Vydra penalty also found the back of the net for Gianfranco Zola’s men, who also hit the woodwork three times and created numerous other opportunities.

While it was another convincing win for the Hornets, they did need Manuel Almunia to make a fine double save and a superb goalline clearance from Tommie Hoban to keep the Tykes out when the Hornets were only a goal to the good.

The Watford keeper though, deserved a clean sheet and he would have got one were it not for an injury-time mistake from Joel Ekstrand that allowed Marcus Tudgay to net a consolation.

But the Hornets were already certain of maintaining their 100 per cent record against Yorkshire opposition this season, making it four wins from four and scoring 17 goals in the process.

Gianfranco Zola made just the one change from the side that won impressively against Sheffield Wednesday in midweek, with Alex Geijo making way for Deeney.

The game got off to a fairly sedate start but the hosts almost made the breakthrough in the fourth minute when left-back Scott Golbourne slipped as he tried to deal with Fernando Forestieri’s ball inside him, putting Marco Cassetti through on goal. The Italian struck a firm rising drive which Luke Steele did well to parry up in the air but the second ball wouldn’t fall for Deeney.

Almunia was soon into the action, making routine stops from shots by Emile Sinclair and Craig Davies but in between those the Hornets won their first corner but Hoban scuffed Yeates’ right-sided set piece wide.

But from Yeates’ second corner in the tenth minute after some neat interplay, with Nathaniel Chalobah heavily involved, Watford took the lead.

This time the delivery came in from the left and Deeney did very well to lean backwards and direct a header past the helpless Steele to score for the fifth match in succession.

Akos Buzsaky dragged a long-range effort harmlessly wide as the Tykes sought a quick response and five minutes later the on-loan Portsmouth player went on a jinking run that ended with him firing another effort wide from the edge of the area.

However, the visitors then won two back-to-back corners, both of which forced Almunia into action.

The first set piece was played in from the right and Davies met it with a looping header that was heading inside the keeper’s right-hand post until he got across to tip it onto the post and behind. However, the former Arsenal stopper had to be at his best to prevent Barnsley from levelling the second, making a smart reaction stop to keep out an initial flicked header before making an even better save to deal with Davies’ follow up.

Watford had been quelled as an attacking force for a period but they almost scored a fine second after 24 minutes when Forestieri turned back inside off the left before striking a low right-footed 25-yard shot that Steele had to dive full length to turn around his near post.

Yeates’ deliveries had been good thus far and from his fourth corner of the match, Ekstrand got across the near post area but was unable to direct his effort on target.

The Hornets’ next opportunity arose when Jonathan Hogg was gifted possession and allowed to advance before finding Deeney who, in pausing briefly to get his body into a position to try and pass the ball beyond Steele, gave Martin Cranie the opportunity to get in a tackle. Once again though, Yeates’ resulting corner almost led to a goal as his delivery picked out the umarked Cassetti, whose flicked header looped across goal before rebounding out of play off the top of the bar.

Barnsley were forced into a change in the 32nd minute when Stephen Dawson replaced the injured Jacob Mellis but moments later the hosts spurned a golden opportunity to go two up.

Forestieri created the opportunity for himself, spinning superbly away in the centre circle to give him a yard or two and go through one-on-one on goal. But as the Argentine closed in on Steele he briefly paused, allowing a challenge to come in and the opportunity was lost. Although there was a suggestion the 22-year-old might have been pushed over, referee Fred Graham was unmoved and there were no real appeals from the home side.

And the Hornets would have paid the price for not converting more than one of their opportunities were it for a stunning piece of defending from Hoban in the 39th minute.

The chance arose when Sinclair was put away behind the right side of the Hornets defence and, after rounding Almunia, he looked certain to score, only for the teenage centre-half to get back and superbly block the ball on the line with his chest.

There followed a worrying moment for Chalobah when he went down with what potentially looked like a knee ligament injury but after receiving treatment he was able to continue.

Another chance came and went for the Hornets in first-half injury-time when Daniel Pudil fired in a low delivery from the left, only for Forestieri to miss his kick as Deeney was readying himself to pounce behind him.

Buzsaky had the first attempt after the restart, curling a 25-yard free-kick harmlessly wide of the near post. The visitors then won a couple of corners as they continued to make the early running in the second period.

Save for one Forestieri run, the Hornets didn’t really get going as an attacking force after the break and struggled to establish any pattern to their play. But that changed on the hour-mark when one of Watford’s form players scored his second in as many games.

Deeney deserved much of the credit because he held the ball up on the left before a lovely back-heeled lay-off released Yeates tight to the touchline to the left of the target. The midfielder was looking for other options as he accelerated towards goal on the angle but when none was presented, he confidently passed the ball beyond Steele and into the far corner to make it 2-0.

And two became three five minutes later thanks to some quick thinking and a superb finish by a striker at the height of his confidence.

The incident arose when Forestieri was tugged back on the edge of the area but as the Tykes began to set themselves for what they thought would be a set piece, the Argentine slipped the ball through to Deeney, who fit a first-time shot on the turn from just inside the edge of the area to double his tally and score his 50th senior goal.

That was to be Forestieri’s last involvement as he was replaced by Matej Vydra before play had restarted. Reuben Noble-Lazarus then came on for Sinclair before Zola made his second change, sending on for Cristian Battocchio for Chalobah.

Battocchio almost made an instant impact, heading a Pudil cross across the target and wide, before teeing up Deeney, whose right-footed shot was parried up in the air before being claimed at the second attempt by Steele.

Cassetti dragged a shot wide before Deeney’s landmark afternoon came to an end after 82 minutes when he made way for Geijo, while Jim O’Brien came on for Jonathan Greening.

But a good afternoon got even better a minute later when Vydra was hauled over in the box by Jim McNulty and there was very little doubt about what would happen next as the Czech international confidently sent Steele the wrong way from the penalty to make it 4-0 and move back level with Deeney at the top of the club scoring charts on eight apiece.

The seemingly relentless pursuit of more goals continued as the Hornets then launched a sweeping counter-attack which ended with Ekstrand running the full length of the pitch before unleashing a ferocious 25-yarder which Steele did well to tip over. From the resultant corner, Ekstrand was denied again, this time by the crossbar following his header.

It was almost five again in stoppage time when Vydra was flattened around 25 yards from goal and Yeates struck a superb free-kick that cannoned off the near post with Steele beaten.

Almunia deserved his clean sheet but he was let down by Ekstrand at the very end when the Swede carelessly gave away the ball and Tudgay made no mistake to make it 4-1 and give Barnsley a consolation goal at the end of a ninth game without a win for the visitors.

And for those of you who pilloried Troy after his offence in B'ham (sell him, sack him, keep him in prison etc etc), I hope that you're prepared to hang your heads in shame now.

Well done all. Proud to be an 'orn again tonight. It just keeps getting better. Wonder what's around the corner to f*c* it all up.

I thought we were a bit lucky to be winning at half time but second half was immense and a joy to watch. To be able to bring on Vydra and Geijo just shows how far we've come as they would get a start in most championship teams. COYH

I thought TD was bought as a fringe player for a few runs in the side from about 65 mins on and cover for injuries. The Tesco Value purchase. Nice to see the lad take the 2nd chance, that I did not think he would get. Not even getting booked.

I think they are two distinct subjects.

Loving the football, Zola has found his feet, the players are settled into a formation and we are playing well. Plenty more tests to come but enjoying every minute.

I think we can only get better with super John Eustace to come back in and sure us up even more, if indeed he can fully recover from his injury

I wonder if the likes of lutondown stand by their defence of Forestieri? Down on the deck every few minutes and on at least 3 occasions pretended someone had elbowed him in the face. The pinnacle of this was him jumping backwards in the air and nearly catching the ball. He has ability but half the time he's sat on his arse unwilling to get up like a sulky child.

He wasted many a chance due to his diving antics and could have got booked if not sent off. You could see that the other players were frustrated with him and it could of cost us the game.

The first thing to say is how well Barnsley played. Right from the start they set out their attacking stall, and stuck to it. In the end it was their undoing, but there were more than a few nervous faces in the second half until Yeates worked his magic for the second goal.

I thought we were more dangerous after the subs, being much quicker on the break. But for Steele it could have been a hat-full, but I'll settle for 4.

Onwards and upwards! COYH!

That final half-hour, with Vydra on for Forestieri, was as enjoyable as anything I've seen from us this season. Yes, Barnsley were shot by then but we ripped them to shreds. Vydra has something of Helguson about him. Instinctive positional sense, more skill than originally appeared to be the case and a real ability to finish. Best of all, he looks 100% honest, in sharp contrast to the man he replaced. Forestieri for me is a distraction, a sideshow - hugely talented but his dreadful attitude negates so much of the benefit. They look better - and far more likeable - without him.

Forestieri for me is a distraction, a sideshow - hugely talented but his dreadful attitude negates so much of the benefit. They look better - and far more likeable - without him.[/p][/quote]Oh it's you, after your dreadful performance at the forum. You sir are antiquated and an embarrassment. Go a frigging way lutondown

Well done all. Proud to be an 'orn again tonight. It just keeps getting better. Wonder what's around the corner to f*c* it all up.
I think they are two distinct subjects.

Would YOU pillory him if he had not performed so well?

He was a thug, I hope he has mended his ways. I also hope he performs well for us.
Cretin Joe ( as that's the name for Cretions) he is not a thug, or ever was in our, the majority of supporters view.

He can do what he likes if he keeps putting in the types of performances he has of late.
What are you WatfordTalk-ing about? (If you'll pardon the pun)
He wasted many a chance due to his diving antics and could have got booked if not sent off. You could see that the other players were frustrated with him and it could of cost us the game.
A lot of our positive play came through him. As usual. And anyway, we've just won 4-1, are into the play-offs and are playing great football and the first thing you comment on is bashing our player and trying to pick a needless fight with other posters.

Can't you just enjoy another Watford win?

Have to say LD that Jon Marks and Derek Payne were very down on the simulating antics of Fessi on Hornets Player today. You know my stance on this from before but Marx specifically said he thought it was a good move to sub him as the ref looked really **** off with him. He must be more careful, that's all I'm saying.

No not at all, you sought me out not the other way around. I have no problems with you seeing it different to me, I do have a problem with people challenging me aggressively, I will always put up.
Now I have watched Foresterri for three games in the last week and have enjoyed his sublime skills, his tenacity, his devotion to the cause. I have also watched clumsy defenders try and kick him out of the game.
How do myself and Buckler dictate what is right or wrong? We were both wrong on Dyche and said so, we were both right on Bas, but have them deniers ever put their hands up? No,because like the Commies ( as you want to bring totalitarians into the discussion) will always look to deflect the blame.
What are the underlying problems I ask? The Pozzos? Can't be they've save this club. Zola! Can't be he's introduced the best football I've witnessed at the Vic. So who?
Anyway it should be a case of you post your thoughts, and I post mine. It's as easy as that

If Forestieri is detrimental to the team, Zola will drop him. Simple as.
He was MOTM on Tuesday by all accounts and is a threat, teams are talking about him and are scared of him.

We have more than enough attacking options so if GZ feels FF isn't contributing enough or is doing the wrong thing then he'll leave him out of the team.

I'd rather have a Fernando Forestieri in my team that sits on his a*rse half of the game than a Joe Garner that tries hard and achieves little.

A lot of our positive play came through him. As usual. And anyway, we've just won 4-1, are into the play-offs and are playing great football and the first thing you comment on is bashing our player and trying to pick a needless fight with other posters.

Can't you just enjoy another Watford win?
I did enjoy the win and was happy with the teams performance, was just playing the devils advocate as everyone thinks there are no improvements to be made - we aren't top!
If Forestieri is detrimental to the team, Zola will drop him. Simple as.
He was MOTM on Tuesday by all accounts and is a threat, teams are talking about him and are scared of him.

We have more than enough attacking options so if GZ feels FF isn't contributing enough or is doing the wrong thing then he'll leave him out of the team.

I'd rather have a Fernando Forestieri in my team that sits on his a*rse half of the game than a Joe Garner that tries hard and achieves little.
Bang on. He destroyed Wednesday single handed and I did witness it.

What a daft post. What's being hard got to do with anything. Words will never prove that.
Look, I'll be reasonable, you come on here and talked of a revolution, lol! Against what? Words?
Over the last 4 months I've met a lot of posters on here, most who I've disagreed with, but I can live with that. What we all do agree on is this is the best footballing side we can all remember, yet some still scour our performances for negatives. That's not being subjective it's being blind. These are mainly the same people who declared their undying love and trust for that Hard hatted charlatan.
Where you want to drink is your prerogative, but the Red Lion is not shabby, it's full of decent Watford fans and the beauty if it all is its owned by the club not the knob.
So my drink fuel rant is over and I will go back to wallowing in that delightful win in excellent company.

Well I was there, was was you? I could answer all your questions in person. I had that lager lined up, ready for that orifice of preference.

No not at all, you sought me out not the other way around. I have no problems with you seeing it different to me, I do have a problem with people challenging me aggressively, I will always put up.
Now I have watched Foresterri for three games in the last week and have enjoyed his sublime skills, his tenacity, his devotion to the cause. I have also watched clumsy defenders try and kick him out of the game.
How do myself and Buckler dictate what is right or wrong? We were both wrong on Dyche and said so, we were both right on Bas, but have them deniers ever put their hands up? No,because like the Commies ( as you want to bring totalitarians into the discussion) will always look to deflect the blame.
What are the underlying problems I ask? The Pozzos? Can't be they've save this club. Zola! Can't be he's introduced the best football I've witnessed at the Vic. So who?
Anyway it should be a case of you post your thoughts, and I post mine. It's as easy as that
I don't deny FF's skill but how is he devoted? When he falls to the ground he sits down and sulks, which is not beneficial in any form.
Everyone feels so threatened by you and your constant wanting to meet up that they don't oppose you. Just because you shout the loudest (metaphorically) and have suck up followers it doesn't make your opinions right.

What an absolute pleasure it is to be a fan right now, yes it is easy to be all smiles when you are winning, but lets be fair as fans the past few years have been tough on all of us.I wasn't too keen on Deeney coming back, but everyone does deserve a second chance in life - I personally was given a second chance and have always been thankful for it. In an absurd way Deeney seems twice the player he used to be, he often had potential but never seemed to fulill that, whereas now he seems to be relishing his second chance with an excellent workrate and goals to go with it. I hope the attendances do improve, this is probably some of the best football ever being played at Vicarage Road and it would be great if more could come and enjoy it, hopefully that will improve. Top six!!

The idea of revolution was to topple you and buckler from the pedestal some non-fans have placed you on. I feel you should respect other people's opinions even if you think they're wrong.

The first thing to say is how well Barnsley played. Right from the start they set out their attacking stall, and stuck to it. In the end it was their undoing, but there were more than a few nervous faces in the second half until Yeates worked his magic for the second goal.

I thought we were more dangerous after the subs, being much quicker on the break. But for Steele it could have been a hat-full, but I'll settle for 4.

Onwards and upwards! COYH!
Barnsley were a decent side who just lack the sharpness in front of goal.

I agree we looked better when the subs came on, but feel that at times we fall asleep in the middle of the park and lose control.

Plenty more to do, but we're certainly looking like we can challenge for at least a play-off position

We came out second half like an away side and was fortunate that the tykes did not take advantage. Why do we play this way, tactics?
They had most of the possession but no end product. A team with no confidence at the moment. I hope they move up the table, they certainly are one of the better teams I have seen here this season.
As for us, Forestieri played like a juvenile with attitude unlike his replacement Battachio who certainly is looking the part.
At the back young Tommy H is showing just why so many clubs are following him and Joel Eckstrand is the best of the central defenders we have received on loan from our parent club.
But for me the man of our match was Mark Yeates. Totally convincing and intelligent with the ball and scored a delightful goal. One up for the knockers on here who do not watch the game with open eyes and open minds.
We are a team in ascendancy at the moment with a large squad, time will tell if we can sustain this form.
I hope so and dont forget, tomorrow brings the 3rd draw of the FA cup with a certain team up the motorway still there! Whats the odds? .

A great all round performance. Yeates and Ekstrand were outstanding and nobody put in a bad performance. I love FF but at times today he was embarrassing. I hope that Zola sorts this side of his game out and tells him that what is acceptable in Argentina isn't necessarily ok here. He's still young and I'm sure he'll learn, I hope so as he's much more effective beating defenders and chasing people down than sitting on his arse sulking in the oppositions penalty area.

But for me the man of our match was Mark Yeates. Totally convincing and intelligent with the ball and scored a delightful goal. One up for the knockers on here who do not watch the game with open eyes and open minds. We are a team in ascendancy at the moment with a large squad, time will tell if we can sustain this form. I hope so and dont forget, tomorrow brings the 3rd draw of the FA cup with a certain team up the motorway still there! Whats the odds? .[/p][/quote]Hope we get the scum. Odds must be 63/1 as there's 64 places in the third round. GianlucaVialli the better italian

Anyone know why our captain stormed off at the end without even a wave to us or a shake of the hand to anyone else? Clean sheet bonus perhaps? Ekstrand slipped to concede the goal. That was the captains best home result this season. Captains job is to thank the fans even after a 4-1 defeat, let alone a 4-1 win. It's not as if he hasn't made a howler this season. Time to chane the captaincy me thinks!.

Well I believe in the adage of show me a good loser and you show me a loser. He was ticked off. Does it really matter in the scheme of things? I'm glad he was angry, our expectations have risen, so has his.

Maybe he had a few quid on a 4-0 score line, who cares.

I don't want a captain that is good at waving, I want a captain that leads a team to a 4-1 win and a play off spot.

Change captain my ar5e, what are you like!!! I can wave like wavey f'ing davey, so if you could have a word with Zola I have always wanted to play for The Horns.

I hope the attendances do improve, this is probably some of the best football ever being played at Vicarage Road and it would be great if more could come and enjoy it, hopefully that will improve.

Very good honest post Henry and I agree. But let's be honest about this, you were given a bit more than a second chance, cutting off your wife's head was just the start....

No not at all, you sought me out not the other way around. I have no problems with you seeing it different to me, I do have a problem with people challenging me aggressively, I will always put up.
Now I have watched Foresterri for three games in the last week and have enjoyed his sublime skills, his tenacity, his devotion to the cause. I have also watched clumsy defenders try and kick him out of the game.
How do myself and Buckler dictate what is right or wrong? We were both wrong on Dyche and said so, we were both right on Bas, but have them deniers ever put their hands up? No,because like the Commies ( as you want to bring totalitarians into the discussion) will always look to deflect the blame.
What are the underlying problems I ask? The Pozzos? Can't be they've save this club. Zola! Can't be he's introduced the best football I've witnessed at the Vic. So who?
Anyway it should be a case of you post your thoughts, and I post mine. It's as easy as that
I don't deny FF's skill but how is he devoted? When he falls to the ground he sits down and sulks, which is not beneficial in any form.
Everyone feels so threatened by you and your constant wanting to meet up that they don't oppose you. Just because you shout the loudest (metaphorically) and have suck up followers it doesn't make your opinions right.
Lutondown & Buckler have caught you hook, line and sinker, reeled you in and thrown you back in. That's what they want, for people like you to bite. They must **** themselves laughing everyday for the way they wind people up. I must admit I don't agree with them all the time but I always look for their comments, they are a source of amusement, winding people up. Keep it up lads! Lol

Really hope we don't for several reasons, revenue from cup games is split 50/50 after expenses, therefore if it is at scum town we will get about 3k and if it is at ours they will benefit financially.

Secondly nothing for them to lose, it will be like a cup final for them, we'll be surrounded by all of those drug taking wife beating benefit cheating scum bags that come out of the woodwork every time we play them.

Would rather they got a Kidderminster away and we tested ourselves with a top Prem club in front of a full Vic

Chelsea at home for me would be very interesting right now.

Indeed, whilst he is playing like this then great, reverts back to his greedy going for glory every time then forget it.

I said in a post a few weeks back if the right Yeates turns up he can be a great asset otherwise he is a weak link.

Good luck to the lad and hope he keeps it going.

I thought the proceeds were split three ways with the FA getting a third, but visiting the FA site I see that third round winners receive 67500 from the cup prize fund. I'm not clear if this is in addition to 1/3 of net proceeds, but assume not.
Looking forward to Saturday. I let my wife persuade me that five weeks away visiting family in Singapore wasn't too long, but I seem to have missed an awful lot of action!

You know, if someone didn't know the score and didn't go to the game but just read some of the posts above, you would presume we'd lost !

Or am I dreaming we won 4-1 again ?

loved yesterday's result - not sure if Deeney should have been subbed, a hat-trick would have been great for him. Yeates was good, Hogg warmed up as game progressed. Bought tickets for Brighton game. COYH!!!

Well I was there, was was you? I could answer all your questions in person. I had that lager lined up, ready for that orifice of preference.
The only embarrassment is the like of you and your ilk. Now put up or shut up.
We win 4-1 two games in a row and you look for negatives? Tool
In a previous post I explained why I refuse to enter that shabby pub.
Ok you go along being ignorant to the underlying problems.
Everyone has their opinions, yet you and buckler seem to dictate to people what is right and wrong? People should be allowed to go against you and ask questions - this is how the nazi party rose to power.
No not at all, you sought me out not the other way around. I have no problems with you seeing it different to me, I do have a problem with people challenging me aggressively, I will always put up.
Now I have watched Foresterri for three games in the last week and have enjoyed his sublime skills, his tenacity, his devotion to the cause. I have also watched clumsy defenders try and kick him out of the game.
How do myself and Buckler dictate what is right or wrong? We were both wrong on Dyche and said so, we were both right on Bas, but have them deniers ever put their hands up? No,because like the Commies ( as you want to bring totalitarians into the discussion) will always look to deflect the blame.
What are the underlying problems I ask? The Pozzos? Can't be they've save this club. Zola! Can't be he's introduced the best football I've witnessed at the Vic. So who?
Anyway it should be a case of you post your thoughts, and I post mine. It's as easy as that

Right...just read all these posts and i'm no longer surprised by the idiots who post here. Now all sit down as i'm about to say something...I thought Mark Yeates had a decent game...there i said it. If he plays like that passes the ball and delivers crosses who can complain. Now FF...is pure class and any idiot who thinks he shouldnt play football really needs to go find another sport to watch. Yes he needs to understand that when he is on the deck he needs to get up and get back quicker , however he got nothing yesterday and this will frustrate him as it does us. The boy is young and will get better and better and will learn off a legend we are lucky to have as a manager. Keeper was excellent yesterday with double saves ala tony coton and ben foster at their best...hoban was very good...Eskstrand looking as good as newton. Centre backs that run with the ball and that shot he had was fantastic and deserved a goal. Hall was decent and chalaboa good game. Rafa wont want a 17 year old back at chelsea at present and with us challanging at top of the league Chelsea will not want to move him anywhere so dont worry about him going back in January. Troy just seems to love his new life and really understands what it is to be lucky..FF just class and learns daily....Vydra is so quick and looks like he loves to play off Geijo who for only 10 mins showed the class he has. Step over the ball on the centre spot had left their 2 defenders looking the wrong way was joy to watch. LD and Buckler are not as scarey as that might seem to others....They like me are real genuine Hornets who love this club and the best football we have seen since early 80's but when you come on here and dribble rubbish you will be told...simples. Hull will be a tough game but now all teams are looking at how to stop us and while they are doing that they are not thinking how to beat us. My MOM yesterday.........Es
kstrand.

How is it ballsy to have a row by proxy? But look I see you for what you are a rabble rouser.
I'm just enjoying what we're achieving on the field to be playing tit for tat with you. So argue with me all you like, it exposes you for what you are, for all I'm saying is this team, it's manager and its exec team are top drawer. What's it your actually saying?
