Super sub Hulse nets Rams’ winner


The striker was on hand to nod home a right-wing cross from fellow substitute Nacer Barazite on 83 minutes after the hosts had launched a swift counter attacking move.

The Rams started brightly, with Luke Varney firing over from 25 yards and James Tomkins seeing a header cleared off the line.

However, Watford responded well and Jobi McAnuff’s drive from the edge of the area was tipped around the post by Stephen Bywater, before a quick break from the Hornets culminated in McAnuff volleying high and wide.

In the second half Nathan Ellington saw a close range header saved by Scott Loach.

Kris Commons then grazed the post with a curling long-range effort before Hulse’s late header earned the points.
