City swarm over hornets: Watford 0-4 City

After handing out a 6-1 drubbing to Derby on Tuesday, City took 1,200 fans to Vicarage Road, often a tricky place to get anything, and also welcomed back last seasons top scorer Ross McCormack to the bench to take on Watford.

Which City would turn up? The one that were roundly booed off their home turf after losing to QPR, or the scintillating attacking City we saw on Tuesday?

Answer - It's was Tuesday's City. 2-0 up at half time through goals by Peter Whittingham (pen) and long range Beckamesque effort from 17 year old Adam Matthews, they rounded up a win with two more goals in the second period courtesy of Whitts (again) and a fantastic individual effort from Jay Bothroyd.

It could have been more - Tuesday's 4 goal hero Chopra missed a couple of decent chances, but Dave Jones will be happy with a 6 point haul and 10 goals in the last two outings.

I only hope they can keep it going.

Up the City!
