EFL: Ismaila Sarr fires Watford into possible topflight return

EFL: Ismaila Sarr fires Watford into possible topflight return

Senegal's pacy winger Ismaila Sarr's decision at the end of last season, to follow Watford down when they were relegated from the Premier League into the second tier football championship in England was quite questionable but all seems to turn out well for the player and Watford. A resilient decision that is paying off this season in the English Football League Championship.

On Friday night in an advanced matchday 41, host Watford consolidates their second spot on the log thanks to Ismaila Sarr who scored a brace in the first half to give them an upper hand in the encounter.

Appeals for offside were dismissed when Sarr collected a direct ball on the right and he was found again with a neat pass inside. Cutting onto his left boot he curled a shot past the helpless Rafael and inside the left upright for 1-0 barely 12 minutes into the game at Vicarage Road.

A minute later 14'' it was 2-0. Again Sarr escaped the attentions of the Reading defense and from a tight angle he bulleted the ball high past Rafael and into the roof of the Royals net. Two quick goals that match up the player's pace in the championship, a nightmare for most defenders.

An impressive second half performance from Reading counted for nothing as the match ended 2-0 for Watford.

Ismaila Sarr scored his 11th and 12th goals of the season with the team's two shots on target and he even scored a third but disallowed goal in the game.

The result leaves Watford in second spot with 82 points, 5 shy of leaders Norwich city with a game less.
