Watford climbed up to second in the table on Saturday after an impressive 3-2 victory over Coventry City.
The Hornets left it late on the weekend, and clinched the three points in dramatic fashion once more at Vicarage Road.
Watford found themselves 2-1 down with 25 minutes remaining as a lacklustre couple of moments put the Sky Blues ahead.
However, they soon equalised before man of the moment Ismaila Sarr netted from the penalty spot to ensure that all three points went to the recently relegated Premier League side.
Sarr was terrific throughout and thoroughly deserved to score the winning goal, although he was an unexpected taker of the penalty considering club captain and regular spot-kick taker Troy Deeney was on the pitch at the time.
Here’s how the Watford fans reacted to Sarr’s impressive weekend performance that earned the Hornets all three points…

It’s an absolute tragedy that we can’t be at the Vic worshipping King Kens assists and serenading Sarr! They deserve this! 🙌🐝 #watfordfc

Congratulations to @WatfordFC today on their good win… far more spirit, movement when we have the ball, fewer bad passes & less panic. Only Andre Gray disappointed me… rather see Pedro, or Deeney upfront. Sarr was impressive too.

Thoughts after that one:
– We simply just do not play boring games.
– Defensively, we still look a little shakey, got something to work on there
-This formation isnt the one.
– Sarr got around fantastically, needs work on final ball
-Deeney played well.
-Sema is a god!#WatfordFC

Showed great character winning twice this week. Looked shaky at the back but Sema and Sarr will cause anyone problems. Ngakia needs to start #watfordfc

I'd pay money to watch Ismaila Sarr run.#watfordfc

Sarr was immense second half and thoroughly deserved his goal. Sema with another great performance and Capoue was back to his best. Broke up plenty of attacks, some great diagonal balls.Really difficult to chose from but honestly buzzing with that. Gonna enjoy tonight #watfordfc

We don’t do it the easy way. Second half much better. Stop the stupid mistakes at the back and we will be fine. Sarr looks much better in a freer role. King Ken what a man! Least we can enjoy the first 2 wks of lockdown 2nd in the league. #watfordfc
