Watford have been promoted to the Premier League as goals from Troy Deeney and Matej Vydra gave the Hornets a 2-0 win against struggling Brighton. Head Coach Slavisa Jokanovic expressed his delight at his team’s victory as they secured a return to the big time and also praised the Hornets faithful for the support they have shown their team. They now need just a win at home against Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday to secure the title. Jokanovic said: “It is our privilege to be in this position in the league. We won the semi-final and now we must win the final. “Not only in this game have we shown great character and experience of what to do in this situation. “It was a complicated day for us. We didn’t get a second goal as soon as we wanted so the game was different. “But I must be happy with my players. They did a great job. “And for our supporters too. I showed some applause because this might be the last time we are away from home this season, so to them from me it is a big thank you for all the times they come with us to give us fantastic support.” Picture courtesy of Alan Cozzi
