 Published on: 20th April 2019   |   By: Jake Levison   |   Category: Watford FC

Two goals for Gerrard Deulofeu has secured all three points against relegated Huddersfield which puts the Hornets seventh in the league.

There was no holding back from Gracia’s men today as a great start saw Deulofeu score the first goal of the game with a smart finish in the box.

Four minutes in and the Spaniard latched on to a loose ball in the oppositions box which saw him roll the  ball back and dink it into the right hand corner.

A great and start by Watford continued as more chances fell to the Hornets.

On the quarter point of the game, a great piece of defending by Kongolo saw him prevent a lurking Andy Gray a certain goal.

A nice bit of momentum for Huddersfield which ends in Watford’s number one making a textbook save to stop Mbenza scoring a 30 yard effort.

Half time and the Spaniard is the difference so far at The John Smith’s Stadium.

A nice start to the second half sees Watford take off where they started.

Test for the referee as a ball in from Femenia, which the keeper and Gray both go for isn’t liked by Schindler for some reason which ends in a little scuffle by both men. No cards shown by the referee.

Second goal for the Hornets as Sema shows a nice bit of pace down the wing, Success’ shot is palmed away by the keeper, which lands to the man of the moment who couldn’t miss from there. Home and dry for the Hertfordshire side.

A free kick from Capoue skims the crossbar and the game looks done for both sides.

A last minute goal for Huddersfield sees the game out as Grant’s power header on the 92nd minute is soon followed by the final whistle.

Seventh place for Watford. On to the next game against Southampton.
