Watford FC turned in arguably their most exciting display of the season on Saturday by beating Bolton Wanderers 4-3, winning the game in injury time thanks to club captain Troy Deeney’s strike.
Watford went ahead in the game when the red hot Odion Ighalo scored yet again but the Trotters then turned it round before half time to lead 2-1. Swiss maestro Almen Abdi scored a wonder goal to pull it back to 2-2 before Swedish defender Joel Ekstrand put the Golden Boys ahead yet again. However, Zac Clough levelled again for the Lancashire side before Deeney’s 90th minute winner in an incredible encounter. Head Coach Slavisa Jokanovic was delighted to see his team come out on top in a thrilling match. He said: “4-3? It’s brilliant – at the end of the game. Before the match, you ask me, I tell you 1-0 will be great.” “We made mistakes, but we were strong enough and confident enough in each other to believe that we could win this match. “It was an interesting game for the supporters, I am sure of this. I am not sure that the coach can find it quite so good because everybody could not be certain of what will happen.” The Serbian had praise for the “many good things” which the Golden Boys did during the game and agreed: “I have to be happy at the end. I am proud of my players for what is three wins in one week. “And we also made some mistakes so it’s just as important we focus on what we can improve on. “The team showed character and personality to come to the win right at the end.” by Nicholas Tunney Picture courtesy of Alan Cozzi
