Jansson's last-minute winner sends Watford closer to PL relegation


Pontus Jansson's last-minute winner gave Brentford a 2-1 win at Watford that inflicted a 10th straight home league defeat for Roy Hodgson's side, who remain six points adrift of safety.

Emmanuel Dennis had brought Watford level 10 minutes into the second half following Christian Norgaard's 15th-minute opener.

The home side then nearly won it in the 92nd minute as Imran Louza put the rebound over, following Josh King's shot that had hit the post.

But in the final minute of stoppage-time, Jansson dramatically headed in Christian Eriksen's free-kick to snatch the win for the Bees - their third victory in a row in the top flight for the first time since September 1946 - as Thomas Frank's side move up to 11th in the table.

The late defeat for Watford leaves them second-bottom, with just six games remaining, while 18th-placed Burnley and 17th-placed Everton both have two games in hand on them.
