More 95th minute drama, this time at home to Watford

Updated: Dec 12, 2021

Two games in a row and two 95th minute goals! Watford desperate for the points and we need to pull away from the teams below us. Toney already out with COVID, now Pinnock out with COVID, Canos suspended and Ajer, Zanka, Dasilva, Raya all out with injury. We start with a makeshift team with some players being asked to play out of position yet we make a bright start and Baptiste has a shot pushed over the bar and their keeper makes another good save after a great run and curling shot by Mbeumo. Yet they hit the post and from the corner they score with a header in the 24th minute.We go in one down at half time. We try our best in the second half but they nearly make it two nil. Then in the 84th minute a cross by Janelt is flicked on by Forss and there is Jansson to equalise with a header (his first goal for the Bees). We press forward for the win and in time added on Ghoddos is tripped in the box. A penalty, but no Toney. Mbeumo steps up and in the 95th minute with a Toney-esque penalty wins the the game for us and the three points. From despair to elation in 5 days.
