Two goals in the second-half from Wilfried Zaha and Glenn Murray were enough to secure a win for Crystal Palace against Watford.
Watford started very brightly and nearly went ahead when Michael Kightly, who was making his debut, forced Julian Speroni to make an early save. But it was Joe Garner who had the best chance of the game as he hit the foot post with Speroni beaten.
However, Crystal Palace started to get in to the game and could’ve gone ahead when Scott Loach did well to deny Wilfried Zaha from scoring with a good save. So once again, Watford fail to score in the first-half in a game at Vicarage Road.
Even after the re-start, the match was finely poised but this changed as Watford were punished for not creating enough chances and not taking them when they did have chances. Wilfried Zaha who is very highly rated raced inside Carl Dickinson before hitting a first-time shot past Scott Loach from a very tight angle. The points were then secured for Crystal Palace when Jermaine Easter made it 2-0 after a fine run and shot to get his second league goal of the season.
This 5th defeat of the season now leaves Watford in 20th place and things must change quickly if Watford are to avoid being sucked in to a relegation scrap.
