Watford 2 Brighton 0

Sunday didn't go the way it was meant to as Watford hadn't won all year, and had only won once in the last 15, so this was meant to be Brighton's chance to get the promotion push back on track.

Albion were beaten 2-0 at Vicarage Road though on Sunday.

Watford's first real attempt of the game brought them a goal. Ikechi Anya collected the ball on left of the box with his shot beating Tomasz Kuszczak with an angled effort across the Albion goalkeeper.

This would spark us into life, and we would fight to get back into the game. That didn't happen either with Watford having another chance, that Fernando Forestieri should have done better with, but luckily for us his volley was easy for Kuszczak to save.

Kaz LuaLua, who had just come on for Jake Forster-Caskey after he needed to go off due to injury, very nearly equalised for Albion with the break coming. Manuel Almunia was beaten all ends up but his effort came back off the crossbar.

Oscar clearly had words with the players at half time as we came out much better, and positive.

The problem was that clear chances weren't coming.

A defensive mistake from Gordon Greer gave Forestieri a chance and he took it to put Watford two up. Greer was being put under pressure from Alexander Merkel and this was enough to see his attempted back pass to Kuszczak fall short. Forestieri got onto this, rounded the Albion goalkeeper and scored.

Leo Ulloa headed Albion back into the game, or so we thought but his goal was disallowed with the linesman's flag up for offside and that not counting ended any chance of us coming back.

We need to get back on track, and fast or a chance of promotion via the play offs might quickly disappear.
