Watford made it three wins in a row in the Premier League with a narrow 1-0 victory over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.
Odion Ighalo’s goal as early as the fourth minute proved to be the difference between the two teams.
Former Sunderland defender Higginbotham was following the game, and he was impressed with Troy Deeney and Ighalo’s partnership for Watford.
Watford very good and organised. Deeney and Ighalo great partnership. Sunderland unlucky. Pleasure to do comms for @SkySports Match Choice.— Danny Higginbotham (@Higginbotham05) December 12, 2015
