Watford   3 - 3   Leicester

Watford v Leicester

Watford 3-3 Leicester City

An injury-time equaliser from Leicester's Dany N'Guessan denied Watford their third straight victory in an enthralling match at Vicarage Road.

Two goals from Matty Fryatt - a 19th-minute penalty and a 30th-minute strike - put the visitors 2-0 up at half time.

The Hornets responded through Danny Graham on 57 minutes before on-loan striker Heidar Helguson scored twice in 17 minutes to put them in front.

But N'Guessan grabbed a late point when he headed home Martyn Waghorn's cross.


Watford boss Malky Mackay:

"At half time I would have definitely taken the point, I was disappointed to be 2-0 down at half time.

"I think the courage of these youngsters is incredible. You look at that performance and I'd take that every week from my team.

"The last goal was disappointing and it's about being able to see a game out until the end."

Leicester boss Nigel Pearson:

"It's disappointing. It's two points dropped and the fashion in which we conceded the goals was very disappointing.

"I thought we played some great football and I thought the second goal was fabulous - a great move and a great finish.

"So I suppose that makes it even more disappointing because we're waiting for our first away win and, unfortunately, today we threw it away."
