Another point. Watford 2-2 City

Prior to this game I'd have settled for a point away at Watford. They're a decent side - not that long ago in the Premiership, and they still have pretensions to get back there.

A goal against 90 seconds in though makes things tough, and then going 2-0 down it looked like the evening might be over. However, Watford had a man sent off, and gave us a look in. We could have got back in with a penalty, but City & Championship top scorer Ross McCormack saw his spot kick saved.

In the second half City piled on the pressure, and eventually it told - Jay Bothroyd, in some quarters critcised for a lack of goals, popping up with 2 in 4 minutes to level it with 15 minutes to go.

Perhaps at that point, we should have been (I was) wishing for City to push on and finish it, but it stayed level until the final whistle. A point away can't be sneezed at, so I'll take it. Let's hope for at least as much on Saturday as we go to Notts Forest.

Up the City!
