VIDEO: He's back! Stuart Attwell to return to Watford for the first time since 'ghost goal'
Updated 6:04pm Monday 31st March 2014 in Latest Sport
On Saturday Stuart Attwell will referee his first Watford game since he gave the infamous 'ghost goal' against Reading more than five years ago.
Attwell, then just 25 years of age, and his assistant Nigel Bannister wrongly awarded Reading a goal following a corner despite the ball not being close to crossing the goal-line.
It was Saturday, September 20 2008 and Attwell has not been seen at Vicarage Road since.
The weekend match with Burnley will see Attwell joined by assistants Joe Clark and Richard Hulme. The fourth official will be Andy Woolmer.
