Leicester had a chance to seal the deal against Watford today as they stood ready to take a last minute penalty kick in the 96th minute. Instead the complete opposite happened as the Watford keeper had two amazing saves and a counter attack produced the winning goal. Dirty Tackle explains much better: Leicester took a 1-0 lead into the second leg of the tie, but Watford came back at their home ground. Yet with the aggregate score at 2-2 deep into injury time, Leicester were awarded a penalty for very soft foul/dive from Antony Knockaert. The Foxes’ advancement was virtually a sure thing, but former Arsenal keeper Manuel Almunia changed all that by saving Knockaert’s penalty and then saving his follow-up attempt. As the home fans celebrated, the ball was cleared up the pitch and Watford instantly composed themselves to mount a counter attack. A cross was played in to Jonathan Hogg, who headed the ball towards the penalty spot, where Troy Deeney drove in the winning goal in the 97th minute. Watford now moves on to play the winner of Brighton & Hove v Crystal Palace match for a place in the EPL. Article found on: Next Impulse Sports
