Watford faced a Derby County side sitting in the first division relegation zone but only two points behind the Hornets with a game in hand at a precarious point of the season.
Ray Lewington's well-publicised appeals for support from the stands were heeded as the side ended a run of three defeats, overcoming an early Paul Peschisolido goal to win 2-1 on an evening of rare intensity at Vicarage Road.
Heidar Helguson, following up after a Lee Cook shot rebounded off the crossbar, and Gavin Mahon, powering onto a Helguson flick-on, got the Watford goals.
