Will Hughes scores for Watford
Will Hughes showed composure to shoot low across Derby keeper David Marshall after a corner was not cleared

Will Hughes scored against his old club as Watford beat Derby to move third and level on points with second-placed Brentford in the Championship.

In the midfielder’s first game against the Rams since joining Watford in 2017, he guided a low shot into the far corner to double the home side’s lead less than three minutes after Joao Pedro’s fortunate opener.

Brazilian forward Pedro did not know much about his eighth goal of the season as the ball was flicked onto him by Derby defender Andre Wisdom and past David Marshall after a great turn of pace and cutback by Ismaila Sarr.

Colin Kazim-Richards saw a first-half header controversially disallowed for a foul on the goalkeeper by Derby team-mate Wisdom and Wayne Rooney’s visitors fell short despite William Troost-Ekong’s own goal giving them late hope.
