Wolves 1-1 Watford
Watford's hopes of automatic promotion are over despite Marlon King's equaliser against Wolves.

The hosts were by far the better side in the first half and went ahead when Jeremie Aliadiere collected Tomasz Frankowski's pass and side-footed home.

Wolves had chances to make it 2-0 before King pounced on a loose ball on 65 minutes and beat Stefan Postma with a sweet right-footed strike.

But King marred his day late on when he was sent off for using foul language.

  • Wolves boss Glenn Hoddle:
    "If we finished teams off we'd be in the top two, there's no doubt about it.

    "We're not a long way off, but we've got to wait and see the financial implications of not having the parachute money next season.

    "You asked me about being the Wolves manager next season and I said `yes'."

  • Watford boss Adrian Boothroyd:
    "We do regularly shoot ourselves in the foot. We've had a dip in form, but what we've done well is recover.

    "If we can learn from it then we'll get better and better as we go along.

    "I said I thought we'd get better as the pressure starts to build. Some teams will be on the beach in a couple of weeks' time but we're not."
