Southend United loanee Britt Assombalonga wins mini-battle against Watford team-mate Adam Thompson
Watford forward Britt Assombalonga scored his second goal in the space of a week as his early header earned Southend a 1-0 victory over Wycombe Wanderers.
Assombalonga’s second goal in four games was made even sweeter as it came against team mate and fellow loanee Adam Thompson, who started for Wycombe.
Assombalonga told Southend's website: "We were texting each other before the game and speaking on Twitter winding each other up. So now I’ve scored I’m not going to let him forget it."
Fellow loanee Dale Bennett, who joined AFC Wimbledon from Watford last week, enjoyed an impressive debut against Dagenham and Redbridge, despite the game ending 2-2.
Bennett picked up a knock in the first half but finished the game, earning rave reviews from Wimbledon boss Terry Brown.
Brown told his club's website: "Dale had a nasty bang on his knee and I was looking to take him off because he was limping, but he would not come off and he is that kind of character.
"He is as tough as nails and at this moment in time we need that kind of centre-back."
