Luton Town

‘Genuine conference quality’ – These Watford fans were not impressed with one man in Luton defeat

Published

Watford suffered a setback in their quest for automatic promotion on Saturday afternoon, as they were beaten 1-0 by local rivals Luton Town at Kenilworth Road.

James Collins’ penalty 12 minutes from time, after Watford ‘keeper Daniel Bachmann had brought down Elijah Adebayo in the area, was enough to secure all three points for the hosts.

With Swansea and Brentford, the two sides immediately behind Watford in the Championship table, only drawing, the Hornets remain in control of the second automatic promotion place, although they did miss a big opportunity to move a step closer to an immediate return to the Premier League here.

Perhaps not surprisingly therefore, with this also being a derby defeat, plenty of Watford fans were far from happy as they took to Twitter to give their thoughts on the game, and one man who came in for a considerable amount of criticism, was Achraf Lazaar.

Having been drafted into the starting XI late on following after Adam Masina went down with illness, it was Lazaar’s backpass that put Bachmann in trouble for the penalty, and many Watford fans were clearly unimpressed with what they saw from the Moroccan, in just his fourth appearance for the club since joining as a free agent in February.

Here, we take a look at what some of those Hornets supporters had to say about the 29-year-old’s latest performance.
