A draw against Hull City at home effectively ended any chance of finishing within the play-off zone after being a goal behind.
Hull City started brightly and deservedly got their goal after three minutes when James Chester headed in an Andy Dawson corner. Though, Watford to their credit were back on level terms when a well-worked corner ended with Troy Deeney tapping in a low John Eustace cross.
Tomasz Kuszczak, who retained his place in goal, made two outstanding saves to deny both James Chester and Matty Fryatt. Though, Hull City’s best chance to take the lead came when Corry Evans’ thunderous shot hit the bar.
Adrian Mariappa though, who only just came back from injury and because of this, he was slightly off the pace and this resulted in him being sent off after clattering Liam Rosenior. Watford now sit in 14th place and safe from relegation at this part of the season. Has it been a good season?
Well, considering that Watford were favourites to be relegation candidates and possibly relegated, I would say that it has been a successful season for Watford especially after considering the fact that we were in and around the relegation zone. Little bit disappointed with the crowd attendance though to be fair, we have been getting 11,000 fans for quite a lot of the home games.
