‘Goosebumps’, ‘Incredible’ – Plenty of Leeds United fans react to memorable moment involving Watford



It’s safe to say that the Championship has seen its fair share of dramatic moments over the years, especially in the race for promotion into the Premier League. 

One of those that will stand out is Troy Deeney’s late winner against Leicester City back in 2013 in their play-off semi-final at Vicarage Road.

It came from a swift counter-attacking move that saw the Hornets move up the pitch, after Manuel Almunia had saved Anthony Knockaert’s penalty deep into stoppage-time in the match.

Watford eventually went on to miss out on promotion that season though, as they were beaten by Crystal Palace at Wembley.

The Athletic’s Leeds United reporter Phil Hay looked back at that memorable game, and revealed that Deeney’s strike was his favourite no-emotional-involvement goal.

Leeds remain well on course to make a long-awaited return to the top-flight under the guidance of Marcelo Bielsa this season.

Plenty of the Elland Road faithful took to social media to issue their thoughts on this memorable moment in Championship history.

Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below….
