Dawson rescues point for Watford after Leicester's late Chilwell cracker

20 June 2020 01:44
The celebrations were intense, even in a deserted stadium. Watford were minutes away from a costly defeat after Ben Chilwell had given Leicester the lead with a stunning goal, but they refused to give in. They were into stoppage time when Christian Kabasele knocked on a corner and Craig Dawson swivelled brilliantly before hooking a volley past Kasper Schmeichel in the Leicester goal, rescuing a draw for Watford just when all looked lost.Relief pouring out of them, Nigel Pearson and his coaching staff were all off the bench to hail the centre-half’s acrobatic equaliser. It could be a precious moment in Watford’s survival bid, even though a draw keeps them firmly in the relegation mire, and it was hard to argue that they did not deserve a point after competing well in their first game back. Leicester, who lie eight points above Manchester United in fifth place, had paid for one lapse of concentration and have more to do if they are to secure Champions League qualification.
