Watford closed in on the play-off zone with a third successive victory that dented Cardiff City’s promotion push.

Peter Whittingham gave Cardiff a lead with a delicate curling shot when Chris Burke set up the former England under-21 international and he curled the ball beautifully, with his left foot, around keeper Scott Loach and into the bottom right hand corner. This was just after Danny Graham missed a penalty for the hosts following a foul on Will Buckley’s legs were clipped by Lee Naylor. But Graham made amends when he levelled as the striker fired in Buckley’s ball.

Marvin Sordell’s long-range hit put the Hornets ahead after his left-footed drive from the edge of the penalty area clipped the inside of Marshall’s post before nestling into the back of the net. before a John Eustace header from a Don Cowie corner and a successful Graham penalty gave dominant Watford a deserved win.

The home side, who beat Championship leaders Queens Park Rangers in their previous fixture, followed that impressive result by defeating the side placed second in the division.
