Tipped by many to struggle this season, Watford have made a solid start to the season under Malky Mackay and their fans will have taken great pleasure from denying former boss Brendan Rodgers a win for his Reading side at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday.

‘I’m proud of the way we played to come back from the first 10 minutes, compose ourselves and go on to get the point,’ said Mackay afterwards, as his team now prepare to host Coventry City on Tuesday night.

Striker Heidar Helguson is likely to miss the match with a calf injury sustained against Leicester City last week.

The corresponding fixture last season ended in a 2-1 win for the home side, Clinton Morrison netting the Sky Blues goal.
