Plymouth 3-3 Watford
Watford came back from two goals down earn a draw at Plymouth.

Micky Evans had put Plymouth ahead when he nodded in an Akos Buzsaky cross before Tony Capaldi squeezed in a left-footed shot.

Marlon King's 18-yard drive pulled one back for Watford only for Paul Wotton to match his strike and restore Plymouth's two-goal lead.

But Ashley Young emerged as Watford's hero when he curled in a free-kick and slotted in a shot to level.

Plymouth boss Bobby Williamson said:
"We had all the play and all the pressure in the first half.

"The manner in which we conceded goals against a team we were leading against is obviously worrying.

"It is disappointing that we conceded three goals at home and obviously we have got a lot of work to do before we play Derby at home on Saturday."

  • Watford boss Adrian Boothroyd:

    "We turned up and we thought we'd just get a bit of Devon sunshine but it doesn't happen like that.

    "I have never seen or been involved in, or watched a game where there is such a change in attitude to wanting to win.

    "What was said at half-time remains private but the players responded to what I said in a very professional fashion and I am delighted."
