Watford grabbed an unlikely three points at The Valley this evening thanks to goals from Tommie Hoban and Almen Abdi.

Young defender Hoban headed Watford in front in the 29th minute before Ricardo Fuller levelled in the 34th minute.

Forward Fernando Forestieri was dismissed just before half-time as he collected a second yellow for simulation - though there is some suggestion the Argentine merely slipped.

With the 'Orns under the cosh, Abdi stepped up to score a stunning free-kick with his third of the season.
