  1. Goodbye

    Watford 2-2 Bournemouth

    Watford bounce back from their 2-0 defeat at Burnley last Monday to secure a point against Bournemouth, who twice led. The Cherries will be disappointed they didn't take all three points after hitting the woodwork three times.

    Thanks for your company. You can read a match report of this game on the BBC Sport website. Reaction from Vicarage Road here.

    Now it's Bournemouth's time to plough forward. End to end.

  4. Post update

    Watford 2-2 Bournemouth

    Troy Deeney goes down inside the Bournemouth's six yard area. Home fans want a penalty. Mike Dean is not interested.

  5. Post update

    Watford 2-2 Bournemouth

    Four minutes of additional time.

  6. Post update

    Watford 2-2 Bournemouth

    Watford, roared on by their fans, are piling forward in the closing stages. Can they find a dramatic winner?

  7. Post update

    Watford 2-2 Bournemouth

    Terrific effort by both teams. They have conjured up a thoroughly entertaining match.


    Watford 2-2 Bournemouth

    Oh my word. Junior Stanislas clatters a free-kick against the Watford bar. That's three times Bournemouth have been denied by the woodwork. Incredible.

  9. Post update

    Watford 2-2 Bournemouth

    Just over 10 minutes remaining. No sign of either team shutting up shop and playing out for a draw.

  10. Post update

    Watford 2-2 Bournemouth

    There is plenty of time left for another twist to this gripping game. No one is leaving.

    Jack Wilshere reacts

    Jack Wilshere is unmarked inside the Watford area when he receives a pass with the net in front of him. Surely Bournemouth score? No, Wilshere hits the post for the second time in the game. Watford escape and Wilshere once again fails to complete the game as he is substituted.

  14. GOAL - Watford 2-2 Bournemouth

    Isaac Success

    Isaac Success celebrates

    You can't take your eyes off this. Watford are back on level terms within two minutes and it's another substitute who makes an immediate impact as Isaac Success rises high above the Bournemouth defence to place a lovely header beyond Artur Boruc. What a terrific game.

  15. GOAL - Watford 1-2 Bournemouth

    Joshua King

    Josh King celebrates goal

    What an impact by Bournemouth substitute Joshua King. The forward has only just come off the bench when he collects the ball just inside the Watford half and ploughs forward before dispatching a 25 yard shot which takes a deflection before finding the net.

  16. CLOSE!

    Watford 1-1 Bournemouth

    Troy Deeney thinks he's got his 100th Watford goal after getting his head on the end of Nordin Amrabat's cross. Artur Boruc is down to keep his side in the game.


    Watford 1-1 Bournemouth

    The yellow card count rises to six as Bournemouth's Valon Behrami after another late challenge.

    Watford 1-1 Bournemouth

    So close for Jack Wilshere. The England midfielder is denied his first Bournemouth after a jinking run ends with him dispatching a curling low shot which rattles a post. Great response by Bournemouth.

  20. GOAL - Watford 1-1 Bournemouth

    Troy Deeney

    Troy Deeney celebrates

    How would Watford cope without Troy Deeney? The Hornets skipper's 99th goal from seven yards for the club draws them level. It's all about Nordin Amrabat whose trickery out wide allows Deeney to score.
