  1. Post update

    Watford 1-2 Burnley

    Thanks for joining me today. That's all for now but follow all the reaction here.

  2. FULL-TIME

    Watford 1-2 Burnley

    And that's it. Burnley hold on. Anyone mentioned the Europa League might be a possibilty?

  3. Post update

    Watford 1-2 Burnley

    Corner for Watford in the dying seconds....but Burnley clear.

  4. Post update

    Watford 1-2 Burnley

    Big chance for Chris Wood to settle this for Burnley but Orestis Karnezis saves for Watford.

    Chris Wood
  5. SUBSTITUTION

    Watford 1-2 Burnley

    Double change for Watford. Richarlison replaces Will Hughes and Andre Carrillo is on for Abdoulaye Doucoure.

  6. SUBSTITUTION

    Watford 1-2 Burnley

    Jeff Hendrick replaces Aaron Lennon for Burnley.

  7. Post update

    Watford 1-2 Burnley

    It's a good chance for Watford to draw level. But Troy Deeney misjudges a cross from Roberto Pereyra and the ball goes beyond him as Burnley survive.

  8. GOAL - Jack Cork

    Watford 1-2 Burnley

    Well then, who would've thought this possible? Burnley are ahead and it's Jack Cork with the goal.

    Watford again fail to deal with a ball into the penalty area and Cork's header just goes over the line before Orestis Karnezis claws the ball clear.

  9. GOAL - Sam Vokes

    Watford 1-1 Burnley

    Well what an introduction! Sam Vokes scores with his first touch - his first goal since November - to draw Burnley level.

    It's a dreadful goal to concede from Watford's perspective. Adrian Mariappa heads the ball into the air and Vokes prods it in from close range.

  10. SUBSTITUTION

    Watford 1-0 Burnley

    Here comes the cavalry for Burnley. Or more aptly here comes Sam Vokes who replaces Georges-Kevin Nkoudou. I wonder how Burnley will approach the last 20 minutes?

  11. Post update

    Watford 1-0 Burnley

    Will Hughes appears to have the freedom of Vicarage Road at the moment. He is picking out passes and running the show as the hosts win another corner.

    Not quite sure where the gritty, obdurate Burnley side that has featured all season have disappeared to.

  12. GOAL - Roberto Pereyra

    Watford 1-0 Burnley

    Roberto Pereyra turns the ball past Nick Pope after some good work from Will Hughes.

    Hughes danced his way into the Burnley penalty area and when the ball broke left, the Argentine found the bottom right corner. That's his fourth of the season and a second in as many games.

    He had slammed a free-kick into the Burnley wall moments earlier. All's forgiven Roberto.

  13. Post update

    Watford 0-0 Burnley

    Some neat play by Will Hughes ends with the Watford midfielder being unceremoniously dumped to the ground by Burnley defender Kevin Long. Free-kick to Watford in a promising position...

    Will Hughes and Troy Deeney
  14. YELLOW CARD

    Watford 0-0 Burnley

    That's a ninth booking of the season for Abdoulaye Doucoure who is cautioned for hauling Burnley winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou to the ground.

  15. Post update

    Watford 0-0 Burnley

    Burnley's Ashley Westwood has just taken one for the team, throwing himself in front of a piledriver from Daryl Janmaat. Watford are starting to display a real swagger, popping the ball around nicely.

  16. Post update

    Watford 0-0 Burnley

    What was I saying? Will Hughes cuts the visitors open and Daryl Janmaat side-foots a shot straight at the Burnley keeper, Nick Pope.

    That looked very easy. Watford really should be ahead.

    Will Hughes
  17. Post update

    Watford 0-0 Burnley

    I suspect Sean Dyche may have had a word at half-time in the Burnley dressing room.

    The visitors have started quite positively, though rather like the first half, will they be able to maintain it?

  18. Post update

    Watford 0-0 Burnley

    Nearly an absolute howler from the Watford goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis.

    He drops a high aimless ball under very little pressure but recovers well to block with his legs as Ashley Westwood follows-up for Burnley.

  19. KICK-OFF

    Watford 0-0 Burnley

    And we're under way for the second half.

    Will Hughes
  20. Warm reception for Mackay

    Watford 0-0 Burnley

    Malky Mackay has been out on the pitch has received a very gracious reception from the home supporters. Mackay played for and managed the Hornets.
