Watford stars react on Twitter to comeback win against Leeds United in Championship

Watford stunned Leeds United 3-2 at Elland Road in the Championship on Saturday.

Watford enhanced their chances of automatic promotion to the Premier League with a stunning comeback against Leeds United on Saturday.

The Hornets were 2-0 down after just 19 minutes against the West Yorkshire outfit at Elland Road, but they scored three goals thereafter to win the Championship clash 3-2.

Hosts Leeds took the lead in the seventh minute when Billy Sharp found the target from close range.

The West Yorkshire outfit doubled the advantage on 19 minutes through a sensational volley from Rodolph Austin.

Troy Deeney halved the deficit for Watford in the 39th minute, and Matej Vydra equalised for Slavisa Jokanovic’s side on 56 minutes.

Then, with nine minutes left on the clock, Vydra struck again, collecting Deeney's long pass and firing the ball home after his initial shot was saved by Marco Silvestri.

Watford are now fourth in the Championship table with 62 points from 34 matches, just three points behind leaders Derby County.

The Watford players were understandably delighted with the comeback win and took to social networking site Twitter to revel in it.
