Coventry Vs Watford – It was a tough return to the Championship for Coventry City, who are back in the Second Division after being promoted to the League One title last season. Mark Robins’ side sit one place outside the relegation zone and have just two league wins from 10 games so far. However, one of those who came against leaders Reading last weekend ended the Royals’ unbeaten run and proved the Sky Blues are capable of anything on their day. Matt Godden leads this campaign and has already scored four goals.

“They are in a bad position in the table but they beat Reading in first place. This is the best example of local football and how they respect everyone and prepare for a tough game.

“I know and I believe that my players now know that every game is difficult and you have to work hard from the first to the last second to achieve your goal and win.
“No one gives gifts in football, you have to work hard to win. If you work hard, focus, tactically and physically better than your opponents, you can expect to win.”
Ismaila Sarr scored his first goal for the Hornets when Coventry City arrived at Vicarage Road in the last Carabao Cup campaign. Daryl Janmaat and Adalberto Peñaranda also scored in a comfortable 3-0 win for the hosts.

BBC Sport: Watford’s failure to leave Coventry with maximum points after seeing off a comfortable 2-0 win will affect their play-off chances as a run of just two wins from 14 games now leaves them six points adrift of the top six and five games. to go
Sky Sports: The home side were frustrated in their efforts to find a winner and thought they should have scored a penalty when Brooke Norton-Caffey appeared in the box with nine minutes remaining.
Fran’s Watford blog: There was a little boo from the away side at the final whistle. Then the mood got worse as some very angry people started telling the players what they thought of them. One of the angriest people was someone I’d met many times on toy trains over the years, and who always thought I was very soft. I must say I was very surprised and saddened by this level of anger after what was a most encouraging performance. Regardless, the players came to cheer on the traveling fans and most of the fans cheered back. I couldn’t help but think that if half of the game was changed, we would all go home happy with the game. The first half was the best I have seen in weeks. There was more cohesion and evidence of the team playing together in the game. Unfortunately, as soon as Coventry scored the confidence disappeared and I was afraid we would end up seriously beaten. In the end, it was a decent performance by the neutrals and a well earned point went away. Andrews really impressed me. Let’s hope that now we see more youngsters finish the season and end the season on a positive note.
BBC Sport: Victor Gokeres scored the only goal of the game as Coventry City ended Watford’s three-match winning streak with a hard-fought victory over the Hornets at Vicarage Road.
Stats Buzz: Coventry City In Numbers
Sky Sports: Victor Gokeres’ goal five minutes into the second half proved more than enough on a day where Watford were held to a goal and also saw Ismaila Sarr miss a golden chance.
BHappy: While the result of the game is very disappointing, any disappointment should be tempered by the fact that while Coventry’s model is in many ways the way they play against Watford, no one executes it as effectively as this one. We know that without Imran Loosa, we lack a breaker; here, Coventry are disciplined and focused ahead of what for the first half hour or so is a focused attack. They will stretch in the second half, we could easily do with something like this – annoying but perhaps a blessing in disguise. We are better, but we are not better enough to take things for granted.
Fran’s Watford Blog: Tributes were paid at half-time to Cliff Vassiliou, who was a very familiar face at Vicarage Road until his death earlier this year. He was also often seen in reserve and youth games with his best friend Tom Walley. Paul Stallard, a lifelong fan who gave 25 years of service to the club, was also remembered.

BBC Sport: Watford moved up to fourth in the Championship with a draw against impressive Coventry City at St Andrews.
Sky Sports: Mark Robins’ men missed a number of chances to break the deadlock in the first half but held on as the Hornets, who saw captain Troy Deeney hit the crossbar, piled on the pressure late on.
BHappy: I really really can’t write about this boring old stuff anymore. It is quite painful to watch. And yes, there is mitigation, and no, it’s not all bad, whatever you might have the social media warriors (and by the way, baseless claims that you speak for the masses – “all the supporters see it” – “we everyone knows that” is not a good look. Either your opinion stands for itself, or it is better left in the field).
The Hornets produced a five-goal thriller for the second consecutive home game, producing the perfect response to those fans who were unfortunate to miss the game three days earlier at Hive Live, and leaving themselves in a great position to a great promotional offer.

Ismaila Sarr converted an 83rd minute penalty to secure victory after William Trust-Ekong equalized following a Coventry comeback.
Andre Gray put Vladimir Ivic’s side ahead early in the second half with his first goal in almost exactly a year, only for Gustavo Hamer to equalize for Coventry with a 25-yard header. The Sky Blues took the lead a minute later when a long ball was flicked on to Tyler Walker for his first league goal of the season. Their lead lasted just two minutes before James Garner’s corner was headed home by centre-back William Troost-Ekong, who scored his first goal since joining Watford from Udinese in September.
Today was a good day. On a bad day, maybe we don’t equalize and the game turns into a miserable, disappointing loss. On a bad day, maybe James Garner will hold for his challenge in the box before the penalty – it could be a bad earlier than it should be. But it is definitely possible. But today was a good day. Troy was on this stage, half what he was before, but twice as agile; despite this, Ismaila Sarr picked up the ball for his third strike in four games. Around the same time, news came out of the United States that the racist, misogynistic, narcissistic, evil man in the White House was finally out, and a big party began. Today was a good day.
And breathe! Watford won at Vicarage Road for the second time in a week by a five-goal margin, and victory over a lively Coventry City gave John, Jas and Mike something to talk about.
