In their relegation six-pointer against Newcastle, WATFORD were rescued at the death.
Joao Pedro was the hero, rising highest between new signing Kieran Trippier and Jamal Lascelles to level the score at 1-1.
It was no surprise that Allan Saint-Maximin, Newcastle’s star player, scored the game’s first goal only four minutes into the second half.
On the flank, he dispossessed Jeremy Ngakia, cut inside, and slammed the ball past Hornets goalkeeper Ben Forster.
Watford missed a golden opportunity to equalize in the 66th minute when Mo Sissoko, an ex-Magpie, blazed over the bar from 12 yards with only the keeper to beat.
Pedro, 20, saved a crucial point for Claudio Ranieri’s side in the 88th minute.
