We predicted Watford to win yesterday, and they didn’t disappoint. Watford fortified their grasp on a premier league promotion with a disputable win over striving Sheffield Wednesday.
A 7th-minute own goal from Tom Lees made all the difference. However, the offside call had already been made when Lees attempted to beat Success to a cross from Ismaila Sarr – just for the authorities to establish that Isaac didn’t interfere with the play.
It was a severe blow for the Owls, who had to play without their coach Darren Moore after being diagnosed positive for Coronavirus. Sheffield Wednesday are presently seven points hapless of league safety.
Meanwhile, it was a 6th consecutive win for the Hornets, who shut the hole at the top to six points as Brad Potts’ dying minute’s strike saw Preston hold league leader Norwich to a 1-1 draw.
