Jansson heads late winner for Brentford as Watford’s home woes continue

It was difficult not to feel enormous sympathy for the long-suffering supporters of Watford at the final whistle here. Pontus Jansson’s late winner seconds after the home side had missed a golden opportunity at the other end to complete a memorable comeback not only leaves their Premier League status hanging by a slender thread but also created a most unwanted record.Not since Birmingham’s class of 1986 has a team in England’s top four divisions suffered 10 successive league defeats at home and Watford now trail Everton by six points, having played two games more. “It’s very hard to take,” said Roy Hodgson, who has yet to pick up a point in five matches at Vicarage Road. “We have to keep believing but who knows what can happen?”
