Watford climbed up to fourth place in the Championship with a dramatic 3-2 win over Stoke City.

The win was their first in four games after winless games against Bournemouth, Wycombe and Barnsley.

Here's how we rated their invidiual performances.

Ben Foster - 6

Not much he could've done about either of Stoke's goals and not a lot else for him to do.

Kiko Femenia - 7

Arguably the most creative player on the pitch again. A consistent threat on the right.

Ben Wilmot - 5

A shaky performance at the back, conceded possession too easily, but is progressive minded and tries to build attacks the way Vladimir Ivic wants.

Christian Kabasele - 5.5

Had to sort out a couple of mistakes from his defensive teammates, but made a couple of errors of his own. Should have done better for Stoke's second goal.

Craig Cathcart - 5

Lost track of Fletcher for the opening goal and was unconvincing with his passing.

Ken Sema - 7

Didn't give up and did magnificently well to create the winning goal. Was found wanting defensively at times and looked a little one dimensional in attack, but all in all a good showing.

Nathaniel Chalobah - 4

Another underwhelming display. Lacks tempo and creativity at the moment and is not working as a link between the defenders and attackers in the way Ivic is hoping.

Etienne Capoue - 5 

A frustrating performance from Capoue whose decision making was often negative. Passed backwards far too often.

Tom Cleverley - 6.5

A decent strike for the equalising goal regardless of the controversy. Not a bad performance, but nothing special.

Ismaila Sarr - 8

Put the effort in from start to finish even if he was lacking an end product at times. Took his goal very well after missing a good chance earlier in the match and did well to win the penalty.

Joao Pedro - 6.5

The system does not suit him, but he took his penalty well enough. I suppose he deserves some praise for his part in Watford's first goal as well.


Andre Gray - 6.5

Offered more of a direct attacking approach than Pedro and was unlucky not to score. A way off his best yet, but is slowly getting sharper.

James Garner - 6

A lot more progressive and forward thinking a midfielder than some of Watford's options. Perhaps just lacks a bit of match intelligence and maturity.

Will Hughes - N/A

Joined too late to make enough of an impact.
