Watford finally ended their run of defeats with a nail-biting 3-2 victory over Darren Ferguson’s Peterborough side on Family Day.
Watford started off brightly and were ahead after just five minutes when a poor clearance from Peterborough found its way to Mark Yeates and he fired a first-time effort past Paul Jones. This lead only lasted for 10 minutes after a neat build-up on the right hand side was ended with Lee Frecklington rifling the ball in to the top corner.
Then there was a crazy ten minutes which started with Grant McCann pulling Prince Buaben’s shirt which resulted in a penalty for Watford which is very rare. Marvin Sordell then dispatched the penalty comfortably and got his second goal when he glanced a header in after a Mark Yeates freekick.
But Peterborough got a goal back when Paul Taylor went past three Watford players far too easily and squared it for Sinclair who stroke the ball in to the far left hand corner. The game nearly ended in a draw when Emile Sinclair rounded Scott Loach but lost control of the ball. Then minutes later, Lee Hodson fluffed his header that went to Paul Taylor and his shot was luckily deflected for a corner.
So Watford just about managed to hold on to a win and grab three valuable points and will go in to Tuesday’s game with Brighton and Hove Albion with some confidence.
