Loanees star as Hornets sink Wednesday

Published Add your comment

Watford's loan stars proved the difference as Malky Mackay's side beat Sheffield Wednesday 4-1 to continue their climb of the Coca-Cola Championship table.

Defender Adrian Mariappa gave Watford the lead from close range before Arsenal trainee Henri Lansbury swept in a fine second after a one-two with Manchester United youngster Tom Cleverley.

Marcus Tudgay gave Brian Laws' side some hope with a response but Jon Harley and then Lansbury again scored excellent second-half goals to give the Hornets a thoroughly deserved three points.

Mackay's shrewd recruitment of Cleverley and Lansbury paid dividends as the Hornets played some impressive football en route to the comfortable win.

Cleverley and Lansbury provided athleticism and intelligence off the lone striker Danny Graham and left Wednesday overrun in the middle of the park.
