Watford 2-1 Millwall

Watford 2-1 Millwall

Watford battled back from a goal down to secure their first home win of the season against struggling Millwall in the Championship.

The Lions ended a run of five games without a goal thanks through Liam Feeney's second-half strike.

But that was to be the only cheer on a frustrating night for Millwall, who are in the relegation zone.

Watford deservedly took the points through goals from Carl Dickinson and Craig Forsyth.

Kenny Jackett's men finally ended their barren run in front of goal when Feeney's speculative cross-cum-shot looped off Lloyd Doyley and into the net.

The goal was Feeney's to claim and he celebrated his first for the club since signing from Bournemouth.

The home side drew level after 78 minutes as Dickinson drove into the bottom corner from 20 yards.

There was more to come for the resurgent Hornets as Millwall failed to clear from a corner and Forsyth was perfectly placed to drive the ball in with just five minutes to play.
