The FA Women’s Premier League
Sunday 6 January 2013
A last-gasp winner from Zoe Teasdale saw Watford extend their unbeaten run to 13 games in all competitions.
The substitute scored with her first touch to give the Hornets all three points against Coventry.
Watford boss John Salomon said after the game: “The performance says a lot about the character of the players we have at the club.
“Scoring so late in the game shows the perseverance and belief that this team has.
“But it also highlights how important our Christmas schedule is, because for the second year in a row we have scored important late goals to secure the result we needed, following additional training and a friendly during the winter break.
“It’s a great way to kick off 2013 and I’m delighted with the result.”
This result keeps Salomon’s side in second place behind reigning champions Sunderland, whose match against Manchester City had to be abandoned due to a serious injury suffered by City goalkeeper Dani Brown.
Elsewhere, Leeds United beat Barnet 4-1 away from home, courtesy of goals from Rachel Lee, Clare Sykes and a second-half brace from Carla Cantrell.
