Watford are going great guns in the Championship.
Going into the weekend the Hornets were on a run of just of defeat in 13 Championship matches, a run of form that has seen them move into a very strong position in the automatic promotion race.
Friday night’s clash with Reading was another opportunity to make a huge statement, and boy did Xisco Munoz’s side take it.
Watford recorded a 2-0 victory over the Royals to put them 12 points clear of third place Brentford – at least until the Championship’s Saturday fixtures take place.
Not only that put it put a big dent in Reading’s hopes of securing a play-off spot.
Any promotion-winning campaign needs a hero and Watford’s performance on Friday night certainly brought one to our attention as Ismaila Sarr ran riot.
The winger scored two wonderful goals to sink the Royals with a 2-0 victory at Vicarage Road – a brace that supporters really enjoyed.
Fans took to social media in their droves to praise the 23-year-old. Here’s a look at what they had to say.
