Things looked so good for Watford just a couple of weeks ago. Two defeats in two have brought Slavisa Jokanovic's side back to reality, however...
For Ipswich, a fine run of form has taken them to fourth in the league. Again, though, the Tractor Boys are only one point above Watford.
"I've not looked at the league. I'm not interested. I'm just really pleased with the performance and the victory," Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy told BBC Sport after the game.
"I think Watford are a very good team. I think we've had to play exceptionally well and defend really well.
"Both goalies and defences played well and at half-time I said that was a really good Championship game. It was about whoever blinked first and they did."
Jokanovic, meanwhile, mentioned the word 'control' several times during his post-match interview. But, in truth, most Watford fans complained that they had not a clue what he was saying.
Something else they weren't happy with was the performance of defender Joel Ekstrand - and that was something Ipswich fans could also relate to after an extremely strong challenge from the 25-year-old on Jonathan Williams. Here are the best supporter reactions on Twitter!
Just seen Ekstrand’s challenge on Williams yesterday. Shocker #watfordfc— truehornet (@truehornet) November 9, 2014
I don’t think Joel Ekstrand is particularly popular in East Anglia. #WatfordFC— Jonathan Winsky (@Jonathanwinsky) November 8, 2014
If Joel Ekstrand starts the next game I think I'm going to scream #watfordfc— Adrian (@aefevans) November 8, 2014
Cathcart needs to be starting ahead of Ekstrand in my opinion. Ever since Joel's signed on a permanent deal he's been poor. #WatfordFc— WatfordFCBlog (@WatfordFCBlog) November 8, 2014
I thought we would get a result today #watfordfc Re. Ekstrand - I wrote a year ago that ekstrand is overrated. Seems others agree— Chris Edwards (@MrChrisEdwards8) November 8, 2014
