Match report: Watford 3-3 Burnley

There were goals galore as Sean Dyche returned to his old hunting ground this afternoon.

Defence has been the priority since the former Watford boss took the reigns at Turf Moor and that has somewhat stifled our attacking play. We don’t score many, but don’t concede often either – but that all changed at Vicarage Road.

Charlie Austin opened the scoring after just 36 seconds, before Troy Deeney equalised five minutes later.

That dramatic start set the tone for the rest of the match and mid-way through the first half Kacaniklic was clipped in the box, allowing Austin to grab his second from the penalty spot.

Again the lead lasted just five minutes until Fernando Forestieri got lucky when Bartley’s clearance hit the referee and spilled into his path to make it 2-2.

Watford took control of the game in the second half and after introducing top scorer Matej Vydra it was Forestieri who looked to have won it with a superb curling effort into the top corner.

Burnley threw on Sam Vokes and Martin Paterson and it paid off as Vokes whacked home from Austin’s flick deep into injury time – this time it was our turn to grab a late equaliser.

And a deserved one at that.
