Another Angle: Gray Scores 92nd Minute Winner!

Watch a cinematic recap of the Hornets' home victory over Leicester City, via the Hornets' official YouTube channel below.

Former Watford Manager Brendan Rodgers returned to The Vic at the helm of his new side, but it wasn't the day he would have hoped for.

Troy Deeney opened the scoring after just five minutes, directing a glancing header over his shoulder and into the far corner from a Gerard Deulofeu free-kick.

Jamie Vardy went on to equalise in the second half, but Andre Gray came on and produced a moment of late drama as the Golden Boys won the game in stoppage time.

Loan Lads: Twice Is Nice For Sinclair

Jerome Sinclair scored two headers in the second half against Scunthorpe - one in each bottom corner - as Oxford United claimed a vital win in League One.

Sinclair - who had yet to score for the Us until the weekend - showed good awareness in the box to position himself well in-between the Irons' defenders in the 65th and 80th minutes, heading home two good crosses to put his new side 2-0 up. That second goal would prove vital, too, as Oxford conceded late on, but held firm to run out 2-1 winners.

Fortuna Düsseldorf continue to defy the odds in their bid to stay in the Bundesliga as they shocked Schalke 04 at the VELTINS-Arena by winning 4-0.

Dodi Lukebakio had an eventful game; first, he saw a goal chalked-off after VAR ruled it out, then he scored a penalty in the 35th minute that was awarded by VAR, and finally he assisted the third goal, laying a nice ball on for Benito Raman to put Düsseldorf out of sight of their hosts.

Daniel Bachmann kept yet another clean sheet for Kilmarnock in their 0-0 home draw with Motherwell. That's now his seventh shut-out in 16 league games.

The Austrian gloveman is becoming something of a fans' favourite up at Killie, and is improving with regular game-time.

Udinese secured a big win over Bologna at the weekend. The Zebrette ran out 2-1 victors with Stefano Okaka and Marvin Zeegelaar both starting. Ben Wilmot was an unused sub.

In Spain, Getafe are fourth in the table after a 2-1 away win over Real Betis. Dimitri Foulquier continues to play as a right midfielder for the La Liga over-achievers.

Alex Jakubiak came off the bench and registered an assist for Bristol Rovers' Liam Sercombe in their 4-0 win over Blackpool. Jakubiak picked out Sercombe's run with a fine lofted ball as the Rovers man ran unopposed into the area. 

He also came on as a 71st-minute substitute in their FA Trophy semi-final against Sunderland last night, but by that point they were already 2-0 down and they couldn't find a way back into the game.

Michael Folivi played 82 minutes in Wimbledon's 0-0 away draw with Shrewsbury Town.

Braintree had a tough time of it at the weekend -  they went down to 10 men after just five minutes and were duly beaten 3-0 by hosts Dover, with Andrew Eleftheriou playing 72 minutes.
