Woe for Hornets as~Iron grab win

Adrian Boothroyd’s side have won just one of their last 13 games and, after being eight points clear of the field in November, could now fail to even make the play-offs.

On Saturday, the Hornets played with the body language of a side who had given up on dreams of playing in the top flight next season and when Hayes headed home Jonathan Forte’s cross with over 20 minutes remaining, there was no response.

The home side created very little throughout and Scunthorpe could have won by more had Forte converted two earlier chances.

Watford, who are fifth in the table, now need a win at Blackpool – who are still fighting for survival – next weekend to secure their place in the play-offs.
