Malky Mackay felt his gameplan played out to perfection as Watford snatched a last-gasp 3-2 win against Leicester at Vicarage Road.
Jordon Mutch sent over an immaculate cross that was headed home by Danny Graham for an 85th-minute winner after the Hornets had been pegged back to 2-2. Goals from John Eustace and Will Buckley had put Watford well in control, only for Paul Gallagher to score twice after the break.
But Hornets boss Mackay said: "Our opposition analyst went and had a good look at them [Leicester]. They had been on a great run - five out of seven wins - and we knew there was an experienced manager coming here with experienced players, so we had to match their formation and then go and play off that, and I felt there were going to be areas to expose."
He added: "I think to show the courage to be in a winning position, to be pegged back and then win it again, shows great character in the team.
"As the game wore on and they got back to 2-2, we could probably either try and hold on for a point or go and try to win it, and I just had a feeling we could go and win it. Every time we were in their half we looked dangerous."
