The lads were always in control of their opening game in the Barclays Premier Reserve League South but found themselves level at the break after Watford capitalised on our one mistake of the 90 minutes.
However, two goals in three minutes in the second half from Aaron Lennon and Calum Davenport put us firmly in the driving seat. Lennon was in electric form throughout and served up the fourth goal on a plate for Lee Barnard. Fredi Kanoute had earlier volleyed us into the lead in the first half.
Coach Clive said: “Watford were energetic, worked very hard, made it difficult for us at times and kept themselves in the game on the stroke of half-time.
“We said at half-time that we were pleased with how we were playing but hadn’t really made it pay.
“It was important to do it right in the second half and we did - we created more opportunities and were far more clinical.
“I’m sure the lads enjoyed it. We played some quality football but you need to produce that on a consistent basis. When we did that we got our rewards.
“We had a strong side out and it was all about the lads going out there and doing the job in the right way. I felt we did that and I was pleased with the result.”
Clive Allen was delighted after his reserve side found their cutting edge to finally overcome stubborn Watford 4-1 on Monday night.
