Short and Tweet: Huddersfield Town (A)
Watford secured an invaluable three points at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday thanks to a dramatic comeback.

Oliver Norwood's free-kick from distance put the Terriers ahead after a period of Watford dominance.

In the second-half the imperious Fernando Forestieri bagged the leveller cutting in from the left and squeezing home.

Fitz Hall then got his first for the club, prodding home at the far post, before Alan Lee immediately levelled.

With time running out the 'Orns won a penalty when Forestieri was brought down. Up stepped Troy Deeney to smash home and secure a first win in five.

After every Watford game we source the best views & opinions from our Twitter followers, give them a read and maybe a follow too?

‏@EstebanSemtex 'Forza Watford! Ce solo un Franco Zola! Un Franco Zola! Ce solo un Franco Zola!'

'Foretieri was at the core of everything we did well. The boy has brilliant feet. He'll need to learn not to dive though.'

@JEtchells88 'Best aspect of it was seeung @T_Deeney lead the line & carrying on from where he left off last season.'

‏@Watford_Politic '4 2nd half injury time minutes survived, 3 second half goals, 2 pounds for parking and 1 happy hornet! #watfordfc'

'Aregentina can have the Falklands back if Forestieri keeps playing like that! Hint of dive for penalty, but linesman gave.'

@JLuck15 '"@VitalWatford: Forestieri unplayable. Simple as." not English tho. Need a rugged cf lacking in technical ability but who'puts himself about'' [Ed: He's being sarcastic...]

‏@Aps1967A 'Glad to hear penalty went straight down the middle.I always say it should by down the middle as keeper dives 9/10 times.'

'At last a Watford player at far post :-)'
