Watford   1 - 1   Crystal Palace

Watford v Crystal Palace at a foggy Vicarage Road

Watford 1-1 Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace moved out of the Championship drop-zone after a battling draw at Watford.

Watford took the lead through Andreas Weimann, on loan from Aston Villa, when he volleyed in Andros Townsend's ball from the left.

Palace equalised when James Vaughan collected the ball from Neil Danns before jinking his way past Adrian Mariappa and firing past Scott Loach.

Watford's John Eustace had an effort cleared off the line late on.

Eustace had also gone close earlier when he found space just outside the area and forced an excellent save from Julian Speroni.

Weimann also looked impressive, sliding a pass across goal which Danny Graham was inches away from converting.

Mariappa also missed a golden opportunity when he failed to make the most of Townsend's delivery into the area.

Palace also tested the Watford goal, with Darren Ambrose forcing a good save from Loach.

And Mariappa was lucky not to concede a penalty when he appeared to bring down Vaughan only for the referee to wave play on.

A draw leaves Watford three points adrift of a play-off place but they have two games in hand over sixth-place Leeds.
