Watford 3-0 Huddersfield: Clinical Hornets Thrash Terriers


Watford made it back-to-back wins after they secured a comfortable 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

Despite a strong start from the visitors, it was Watford who went in front after 10 minutes in spectacular fashion. Roberto Pereyra drifted in from the left hand side and took the ball past four Huddersfield players before slotting the ball through the legs of Jonas Lossl to give his side the lead.

The hosts doubled their lead just 10 minutes later after Gerard Deulofeu took on both Chris Lowe and Jonathan Hogg on the right flank before smashing the ball beyond the keeper and into the back of the net.

​Huddersfield tried desperately to get back into the game in the second half, however were halted by an in-form Ben foster in the ​Watford goal, before Issac Success wrapped the points up with a tap in from six yards out with 10 minutes left.

Success and Deulofeu led the line for the Hornets and caused the Terriers’ defence plenty of problems all afternoon, with both men managing to get themselves on the scoresheet thanks to an emphatic strike from Deulofeu in the first half before Success wrapped up the points with a poacher’s effort from six yards out.

Javi Gracia will now have a huge selection headache ahead of their upcoming games with a number of in-form forwards to select from, however it certainly is a dilemma he’ll be delighted to have.
