Watford FC picked up another point away from home in the Championship tonight in what was a game with few chances against fellow play-off hopefuls Bristol City.
Vladimir Ivic named four changes to the side that were also held against QPR on Saturday, bringing in William Troost-Ekong, Ben Wilmot, James Garner and Domingos Quina.
It was the the home side who were looking the most likely to score inside the opening 20 minutes after DaSilva played Paterson through who then cut the ball back towards Semenyo, but he couldn’t keep his effort down.
The Hornets started to get into the game more after that, with Quina trying his luck from distance on the 21st minute, but the effort went just wide.
The closest Watford came to opening the scoring was just before the half time whistle after Garner’s cross was floated in towards Craig Cathcart, but his header went just wide of the mark.
Bristol City were inches away from going ahead within 10 minutes of the restart after Diedhou was agonisingly close to getting on the end of a cross, but luckily for the Hornets he couldn’t get his toe onto it.
The Hornets’ best chance of the game fell on the 74th minute when the ball was pulled back to Quina just inside the area but the Bristol ‘keeper expertly tipped the ball over the bar.
Ivic brought on Ivan Perica in the in the final 10 minutes as the Hornets looked to steal a late winner, but they never really had a chance to impact the game.
The two sides settled for the point in the end with the result seeing both of them remain in the play-off places for another match day.
Next up for Watford is a return to Vicarage Road as they welcome 15th placed Preston.
