Coventry   0 - 4   Watford

Coventry 0-4 Watford

Coventry 0-4 Watford

Two goals in as many minutes helped Watford finish their season in style with a thumping victory over Coventry.

Watford went ahead when Danny Graham beat Keiren Westwood from the spot after being fouled by Martin Cranie.

The Hornets doubled their lead a minute later as Michael Bryan set up Henri Lansbury to lash in from 30 yards.

Jon Harley set up Graham to net his 14th goal of the season before Marvin Sordell completed the rout by firing into the bottom corner from 12 yards.


Coventry boss Chris Coleman:
"There were no positives. It was an embarrassing end to the season.

"I'm doing something wrong - I am - but it's not all just me. I've got a great staff who work very hard but we need to make changes and that was evident.

"It is not good enough and I apologise. If I had been a supporter, I would have gone before the end."

Watford boss Malky Mackay:

"We were aiming to win, push higher up the league and put a performance in, and we did all three.

"It was great to get that win - not just for us, but for our supporters who have followed us all over the country.

"We had a structure about us and we were solid at the back."
