See you soon

Well what a performance, and ending, that was! A fourth game unbeaten on the road for the Hornets. See you in a couple weeks' time as Arsenal are the visitors to Vicarage Road.

What a finish!

Well well well! What a finish that was. Fair to say away days this season have been alright, Watford fans?

4:55 PM

All over!

Get. In. There. 

Richarlison's late header earns a deserved point for the Hornets, who showed the belief Marco Silva has been talking about in recent weeks.

The celebrations, in the stands, on the pitch and in the dugout, show the togetherness in this squad. Great way to go into the international break! 

4:54 PM - 90 MIN

OH RICHARLISON!!

RICHARLISON YOU BEAUTY!!! For the second week running the Brazilian pops up with a 90th minute goal. The away end goes wild, and so does the bench! 

4:53 PM - 90 MIN

Goal!

Richarlison!

Baggies winding down

West Brom really are the masters of this. They've been playing down the clock for much of the second half. It's got to the point where the Watford fans behind Ben Fosters goal are, helpfully, counting out the time it takes him to take his goalkicks. 17, 18, 19, and so on.

4:19 PM - 62 MIN

A change apiece

Both sides change things up a tad. Capoue is replaced by Pereyra for the Hornets, while for the Baggies Livermore comes on for Brunt.

One down at the break

Doucouré's strike hauls the Hornets back into the game after Rondon and Evans had put the Baggies two up.  

3:37 PM - 37 MIN

Goal! Doucs!

There it is! The Hornets have been much better for the last 10 minutes and get their goal. 

Deeney wins the header, Cleverley plays in Doucouré and the Frenchman finds the bottom corner with his left foot. Back in it! 

3:37 PM - 37 MIN

Goal!

Big chance for Watford!

So, so close. Deeney plays a cute inside ball to Richarlison, the Brazilian's skewed shot finding Carrillo three yards out. The winger can't adjust in time, and his header flies over. Better from Watford. 

3:31 PM

Snapshot

A far from ideal start for the Hornets. Can we get a goal back before the break?

3:22 PM - 22 MIN

Evans with the second

It's all gone wrong for the Hornets at the Hawthorns. After a first goal that came out of nowhere, Albion have their tales up. A corner is whipped in, Doucoure flicking on at the front post allowing Jonny Evans to bundle the ball home. 

3:21 PM - 22 MIN

Poor, poor goal to concede. Rondon latches onto a through ball, beats Kabasele and fires past Gomes at his near post. Hornets behind and Albion with the wind behind them.

No chances yet, and as expected Albion are happy to let the Hornets keep the ball, setting up with two banks of four to frustrate.

Ref Watch

Michael Oliver is the man in the middle for today's trip to West Brom. Oliver was last in charge of the Hornets in last season's 2-1 home win over Burnley. A total of five Watford players were cautioned that day. The same scoreline today would go down a treat! 👍

12:30 PM

Welcome to the Hawthorns

Four away Premier League wins on the trot. It's hard to imagine, but that's what the Hornets are looking for this afternoon at The Hawthorns.
