Watford   1 - 0   Barnsley

Highlights: Watford 1-0 Barnsley

Watford 1-0 Barnsley

Watford made it four games unbeaten as Mark Robins' tenure as Barnsley boss began with defeat at Vicarage Road.

Emil Hallfredsson's shot was just off target for Barnsley moments before the break but it was a rare piece of quality in a poor first half.

Barnsley looked good after the restart before Danny Graham scored, bundling in from close range after Don Cowie's free-kick put Barnsley under pressure.

Adam Hammill came close to a late equaliser but Watford deserved to win.


Watford manager Malky Mackay on matchwinner David Graham:
"I am pleased with him (Graham). You often wonder if they can step up (from lower leagues) and so far he has looked an absolute handful in every game he has played.

"The fact he is scoring goals shows he has made the step up effortlessly but it has not been effortlessly because I have seen the work he has been doing in training.

"It is great to get a win at home in front of our fans, but to have the back five come through our academy and play Championship football against the likes of Andy Gray and Iain Hume and not look out of place speaks volumes for the players and the character they showed."

Barnsley boss Mark Robins:
"I can certainly understand why I was given the job a lot clearer now and things need to be sorted quickly.

"It's been difficult. I came in on Wednesday afternoon but to try to get as much into the players as I possibly could over that period of time has proved fairly difficult.

"There is a crisis in confidence and that needs to change quickly."
