Watford 1 City 1

A frustrating result which produced a scoreline that suited neither side as we lost the chance to take three points to hoist us further up the table, whilst Watford failed to gain the win they needed to keep their faint/unrealistic hopes of avoiding the drop.

Both Stuart Pearce and Joey Barton were frustrated at the performance with Pearce unhappy we threw away the lead, whilst Barton was also critical prior to the game of the overall performance of the squad this season.

Now the spectre of relegation has passed (although not mathematically) it seems that we may now see an end of season to performances - something which will be a dangerous mindset to get into considering the importance that could be placed on the derby in a couple of weeks time.

We really shouldn't have lost the lead after being gifted the opening goal courtesy of a howler from Ben Foster - although Darius Vassell only just squeezed it inside the post, but for all their obvious lack of quality this season they have been a plucky side and generally battled hard from the games I have seen and earned their point when Priskin equalised midway through the second-half.
