Watford 2-2 Doncaster Rovers

Once again, Watford were denied a first home win of the season after a mix up in the Watford defence allowed Donnie to salvage a point deep in to stoppage time.

In my opinion, Watford, who were without Lloydinho, were poor and deserved to be a goal down at the break after Donnie midfielder Simon Gillett’s first goal in nearly four years. You could say that Watford were at fault for the goal after some schoolboy defending. There seemed to be a foul that led to the goal but Watford should have dealt with that.

However after the break, Malky made an inspired substitution by bringing on Marvin Sordell who scored two goals to give Watford the lead. The first one was a bullet header after an inch perfect cross from debutant Andrew Taylor who signed from Middlesbrough. The second was a well worked goal that ended with a low struck shot past Neil Sullivan and in to the bottom left hand corner.

It looked like that Watford had done enough to earn their first home win of the season. However, Donnie got a corner, and there was a mix up in the Watford defence, and this allowed George Friend to lash home from close range. Watford’s main problem is the defence and I do fear that if it was against Cardiff City or QPR, then it probably would’ve been a 4-0 or 5-0 defeat.
