Match Highlights – Watford 1 Swansea City 1

Swansea City extended their unbeaten run in the Championship to three games with a hard-fought draw against Watford at Vicarage Road.

The Swans took the lead in the first half courtesy of a Ryan Andrews own goal, a well-deserved reward for their strong first half showing. They could have extended their lead further, with Ronald and Ben Cabango both testing Watford keeper Daniel Bachman.

However, Watford came out stronger in the second half, and a Wesley Hoedt header, possibly turned in by Ryan Porteous, brought the hosts level just before the hour mark.

Swansea’s defence stood firm in the face of increased pressure, with Cabango and Nathan Wood making crucial blocks to secure a valuable point, with head coach Luke Williams saying “The two centre-halves are like a two-man army at times” in his post-match press conference.

Luke Williams made three changes to the side that defeated Blackburn Rovers, with Jay Fulton, Harry Darling, and Jerry Yates coming into the starting line-up in place of Joe Allen, Kyle Naughton, and Liam Cullen.

The Swans face a trip over the Prince of Wales bridge on Sunday to play Bristol City at Ashton Gate.
