Craig Cathcart has found the funny side of his luckless own goal against Crystal Palace, after he helped Watford turn the game around with an equaliser.

Speaking to the club website after the win, the defender joked: "It was my first brace, so I'm happy with that."

Cathcart had the misfortune of being in the wrong place at the wrong time when Abdoulaye Doucoure's attempted clearance cannoned off him into his own net.

However, the 29-year-old managed to grab an equaliser before Tom Cleverley's winner gave the Hornets a hard-fought win.

Cathcart added: "It was a great comeback.

"Obviously, it's nice after scoring an O.G. to get the equalising goal. Then we had the momentum going forward.

"The second goal from Tom was a great finish, and we pretty much controlled the game after that."
