Former Hornet nets Noble prize at Palace

Former Hornet nets Noble prize at Palace

Former Watford loanee David Noble had the last laugh at Selhurst Park as his rasping, injury time drive sealed Bristol City a priceless 2-1 first leg advantage over Palace.

Noble, who drew first blood for the Gary Johnson`s Robins after the 'other` play-off semi final appeared to drawing towards a 1-1 stalemate, played 18 games for Watford after being borrowed from the youth ranks at Arsenal way back in July 2001.

The Hitchin born Robins midfielder may have only notched 1 goal in a Hornets shirt (away in a 3-0 win away at Grimsby) but his late late strike against Palace as put Bristol City in the driving seat for a place at Wembley where he could yet face a Watford side who gave him his first ever taste of league action.

David was a little young when he played for us. He seams to have blossomed into a good midfield player. It's nice to hear N W moaning about the ref for a change. Maybe one day he'll might just accept that he got beat by the better team.
