Troy Deeney leads by example as Watford go third in Championship | Football News – Times of India


LONDON: Watford captain Troy Deeney led by example as his promotion-chasing side moved up to third in the Championship with a 2-1 win at Stoke on Friday.
Deeney converted a 64th minute penalty after Stoke keeper Josef Bursik fouled Joao Pedro.
And the veteran striker also provided the assist for Ismaila Sarr to double Watford’s advantage from an acute angle.
Stoke substitute Steven Fletcher got one back with seven minutes left.
But Watford kept their composure to seal a third successive win, leaving Stoke with just one victory in their last 10 league games.
Watford’s third away league win this season lifted them level on points with second placed Swansea, who are ahead on goal difference as the race for promotion to the Premier League hots up.
Deeney’s sixth goal of the season was his 139th for Watford, edging him closer to the all-time club record of 186 held by Luther Blissett.
