Andre Gray‘s first brace in almost four years helped Watford beat Wycombe on Wednesday in the Championship and push the Hornets level on points with second-placed Brentford. Gray, in for the suspended Joao Pedro, scored for just the second time in 34 matches as the hosts made a great start, with Tom Cleverley and Ismaila Sarr also having chances.
Watford had more than 70% possession in the first half and continued to batter away at the Chairboys before Gray put the game beyond Wycombe’s reach and completed the scoring shortly before the hour mark. But such was the Hornets’ dominance at Vicarage Road, a third could easily have been in the offing with Sarr and Philip Zinckernagel going close.
Post-match, a pleased Watford head coach Xisco Munoz said: “We are thinking that today was a good performance. Every day we try to give better things for tactics, I think we are fitter and every day we are improving. We have a very good squad and the most important thing is whoever stays in the first team gives the maximum for the team.”
Nottingham Forest were made to pay for some wasteful finishing as Luton snatched a 1-0 win at the City Ground on Tuesday night. The in-form Reds made a fast start to proceedings and enjoyed much the better of the first half; Glenn Murray missed two excellent chances, teed up by the impressive Anthony Knockaert, while Joe Lolley also went close.
Forest kept probing for an opener but entered the break on level terms and faded after the break. Chris Hughton‘s side were second-best after half-time and allowed the Hatters’ the opportunity to pinch the points when Ryan Tunnicliffe snuck in unmarked to meet a cross from Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu. From that point on Forest toiled in an attempt to equalise.
Post-match Hughton admitted, “It’s frustrating. First half we played really well and had some very good chances. If you go through a period where you don’t take your chances, you know the opposition will have some. To come in at 0-0 [at half-time] Luton would’ve been lifted by that, but I’m disappointed we didn’t create anything after their goal.”
