Watford finally recorded a home win under the helm of Sean Dyche as they narrowly beat fellow Championship strugglers, Millwall.
Well at the start of the game, Dyche threw us all a curved ball by putting Rene Gilmartin in goal and relegating Scott Loach to the subs bench. Dyche later revealed that the reason for this change was that Scott Loach needed some time out.
There was a very early scare when Martin Taylor blocked James Henry’s goalbound shot. However, that was the only real scare that Millwall gave Watford in the first-half as Watford began to take control of the game. Though, some bits of the game have to be discussed such as why we whipped in looping crosses when we had Marvin Sordell and Joe Garner up who are both under 6ft tall. This obviously meant that defenders like Paul Robinson could easily clear without breaking a sweat.
Things still looked bright after the break with Watford looking really good. But things looked grim as a rare attack from Millwall ended with Liam Feeney’s looping cross-cum- shot looping over Rene Gilmartin and in to the far corner of the net to send the 841 Millwall fans in to raptures.
Watford got their deserved equaliser when Watford increased the pressure and new-boy Carl Dickinson drove the ball home from 20 yards to get his first goal for Watford. Things got even better when Millwall failed to clear a corner and Craig Forsyth drilled the ball home from 6 yards to the delight of myself and my fellow Watford fans.
I’m glad and relieved we got our first home win of the season but this was a relatively poor Millwall side and I just wonder what will happen when we face the likes of Southampton, Cardiff City and Southampton.
