Short and Tweet: Birmingham City (A)

Short and Tweet: Birmingham City (A)
Watford were in a rampant mood on Saturday as they ran in four goals to defeat Lee Clark's Birmingham City side and move up to third.

The result leaves Gianfranco Zola's side just three points behind second-placed Hull City and with a point's difference between themselves and fourth-placed Crystal Palace.

A brace from Blues' supporter Troy Deeney was added to by a goal from the impressive Ikechi Anya, and a third in as many games from Almen Abdi.

Even without Joel Ekstrand, Fitz Hall and Tommie Hoban, the Hornets were comfortable, and recorded a clean sheet to boot.

Here are some of our favourite Tweets post-match, make sure to give us @VitalWatford and your fellow Hornets a follow!

@Wincey74 'So deadly on the counter away from home. No stopping us. Bring on Ipswich.'

‏@leebutler12345 'Didnt hear any scum singing any hatred songs about us today, whose there rivals now? Berkhampstead? Harpenden? Chesham? #COYH'
