Watford 2-1 Sheff Wed
First-half goals from Clarke Carlisle and Marlon King earned Watford a fifth successive win in the Championship.

Carlisle nodded in Ashley Young's free-kick and King netted after Nicky Weaver dropped Anthony McNamee's cross.

Weaver turned Matthew Spring's shot over with his foot before Ben Foster pushed Chris Brunt's free-kick around the post and denied Lee Peacock.

Young shot against Weaver's legs before Foster let Glenn Whelan's 35-yarder go through his hands in time added on.

  • Watford boss Adrian Boothroyd:
    "We lack the ability to dominate a match for 90 minutes. When teams go 2-0 down, they have nothing to lose - and we have to deal with that.

    "It's a different kind of pressure: it's not like chasing a game or knowing you need to score.

    We need to work out how to hold onto our lead and consolidate, but we should have buried them in the first half."

  • Sheff Wed boss Paul Sturrock:
    "We just can't afford to lose the type of goals we are losing, and we have to start games differently.

    "When the players don't do as they are told, and they do not show commitment to the cause, I will not pick them.

    "A striker was my priority - but I think we need players further back. We definitely need to get one or two in."
