Watford 2-3 Sheff Utd
Leaders Sheffield United came from two goals down to beat 10-man Watford courtesy of a late own-goal off the knee of defender Clarke Carlisle.

Goals either side of the break by substitute Darius Henderson put Watford on course for a fourth straight win before the Blades hit back.

Phil Jagielka headed the first shortly before Paul Ifill's shot was deflected in to make it 2-2.

Malky Mackay saw red before Carlisle deflected in Nick Montgomery's header.

  • Watford manager Adrian Boothroyd:

    "There are defining moments in games and we didn't react particularly well to some of those defining moments and that's a massive learning curve for us.

    "It will do us good in the long term. I'm sure about that and as Neil Warnock said if we can keep everybody fit and keep the power and pace and the momentum going then we will be a match for them."

  • Sheff Utd manager Neil Warnock:

    "I thought it was a super advert for the Championship.

    "It was a sending off. He (Malky Mackay) backheeled him (Rob Kozluk). After that they lost a little bit of discipline.

    "The ref was a little bit lenient but they have such difficult jobs."
