Leicester 2-0 Watford

 Published on: 1st December 2018   |   By: Jason Allen   |   Category: Watford FC

Watford have won just twice in their last ten games after Javi Gracia’s men lost 2-0 to Leicester City this afternoon.

Foxes striker Jamie Vardy put the hosts ahead from the spot with twelve minutes on the clock after he was brought down by Ben Foster.

Then James Maddison scored a superb second after he picked up a long-range pass from Marc Albrighton, controlled the ball on the run and then fired a volley into the back of the net to double the home side’s lead.

It was an all too familiar story for the Hornets who wasted a host of chances in the second half with Andre Gray particularly profligate and the Hornets day went from bad to worse when Etienne Capoue was dismissed late on for a lunging tackle on Kelechi Iheanacho.

Watford fans were given free food and drink at the game by the Foxes vice chairman Aiywatt Srivaddhanaprabha after they held aloft banners dedicated to chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who was killed in a helicopter crash in October.

Supporters group the 1881 Movement raised £2,545 for the banners.

The money will be donated to the Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation which helps people in need in the Leicester area.

Javi Gracia’s men are next in action on Tuesday evening when they take on champions Manchester City.
