Hornets sting Colchester

Published Add your comment

Coca-Cola Championship leaders Watford came from two goals down to beat Colchester 3-2 at Layer Road and extend their advantage at the summit to four points.

While West Brom lost 4-2 at home to Coventry, Adrian Boothroyd´s side found themselves two adrift early on after Clive Platt and Matthew Connolly scored for Colchester inside the first 28 minutes.

But Marlon King pulled one back and John-Joe O´Toole equalised before the break - and the comeback was complete when Tommy Smith´s delightful chipped cross left Tamas Priskin with a simple header to collect all three points and end their poor recent run.
