Kevin Blackwell paid tribute to his old Watford double act after watching his Sheffield United side beat the relegation-threatened Hornets 2-0 to solidify their play-off position.
Danny Webber and Darius Henderson, who scored more than 50 goals in approaching 200 combined appearances for the Vicarage Road club, were on target in the second half and both impressed in the aftermath of star striker James Beattie's departure to Stoke.
The Blades are in fourth spot in the Championship and manager Blackwell said: "Darius is a great striker in this division in his own right and I'm very pleased that we've got him, and we all know what Webbs can do and I'm sure Watford fans know what he can do."
He added: "We're fourth, we're in the FA Cup, Sheffield United play in front of 26, 27, 28,000 every week.
"Anybody would want to grab the opportunity, I would have thought and I know they're good players.
"Darius I took from Watford. I knew he was a Watford favourite, and always kept my eyes focused on him.
"When I bought him I didn't think I could keep James Beattie in the summer - I didn't want to get caught without a main target man if Beatts moved on.
"He didn't, he picked up a knee injury, Darius came in and did ever so well for the first eight games and then picked up a serious knee injury himself, and then Beatts came back in so it worked out quite well as it happened."
