Manuel Almunia's last gasp error handed Millwall an equaliser in the fifth minute of injury time after Almen Abdi had handed Watford an 86th minute lead.

Watford took the lead after 17 minutes when Lewis McGugan drilled home his ninth of the season from the edge of the 18 yard box. Steve Morison equalised for Millwall after 64 minutes.

Abdi restored Watford’s advantage with four minutes remaining, but in the fifth minute of injury time, Martyn Woolford grabbed a precious point for Ian Holloway’s side in fortuitous circumstances.

Beppe Sannino made two changes from the side which beat Leeds United on Tuesday. In came McGugan for Sean Murray and Tommie Hoban for the suspended Marco Cassetti.

The game began at a frantic pace, with Carlos Edwards venturing forward from right back to drive comfortably over from 30 yards after two minutes.

McGugan had Watford’s first chance after seven minutes, lashing a half volley narrowly wide of David Forde’s right-hand post after Ikechi Anya cleverly nodded into his path.

Shaun William responded for the Lions, nodding wide via a deflection at the far post.

Watford won a corner after 12 minutes, Gabriele Angella rising to flash a header wide of the far post from a McGugan delivery.

Good link up play from Deeney and McGugan should have resulted in a chance for Albert Riera, but instead McGugan attempted to round the covering Millwall defender, only for David Forde to rush out and collect.

McGugan opened the scoring two minutes later, drilling past Forde at the near post and into the bottom corner from the edge of the area.

The former Forest man tried his luck again a couple of minutes later, lashing wide from distance.

Deeney was next to test Forde, advancing into the Lions’ penalty area and drawing a save from the Irish international from an acute angle.

Another chance fell McGugan’s way when in the 24th minute he found the room to bend an effort wide of Forde’s left-hand post from 20 yards.

Manuel Almunia was forced into his first save after 27 minutes when he beat away a fierce drive from Lions’ left-back Scott Malone from the edge of the area.

Owen Garvan tried his luck three minutes later, turning and firing against a Watford body to earn the hosts a corner.

The Lions had their best chance in the 33rd minute when Lee Martin robbed Joel Ekstrand and fed Woolford, who in turn cut the ball back for Garvan, who was denied by Almunia from a central position.

Deeney and Garvan both had chances for their respective sides before the break, neither player stretching the opposing goalkeeper.

Millwall substitute Morison had the Lions’ first attempt of note after the break, flicking Edwards’ throw on comfortably into the palms of Almunia.

Stefan Maierhofer should have equalised for the Lions in the 55th minute, rising unchallenged to head Martin’s free-kick comfortably over from six yards.

Millwall were rewarded for a brighter start to the second half when Morison controlled a corner which had been flicked on to the back post and crashed a half-volley past Almunia from the angle of the six yard box.

Substitute Fernando Forestieri brought the best out of Forde in the 70th minute, racing onto a ball from fellow sub Daniel Pudil and testing the Lions’ keeper with a firm left footed drive.

Abdi tried his luck with the subsequent follow up and was denied, the Swiss again coming close a minute later with a blocked shot from inside the penalty area.

Millwall skipper Alan Dunne forced Almunia into an excellent save with five minutes to go, the Spaniard pushing away a 20 yard piledriver which appeared destined for the top corner.

The Hornets broke almost immediately from the corner and after working the ball across the face of the Lions’ goal, Abdi steered into the bottom right-hand corner via deflection to put Sannino’s side back in front.

Almunia again did well to deny the Lions in the 90th minute, getting down well to push Woolford’s firmly struck effort around the post for a corner.

In the final minute of five added on, Woolford finally got the better of Almunia to equalise for Millwall. The winger could not believe his luck as his left-footed half-volley squirmed past Almunia at the near-post to earn the Lions a draw.

Manuel Almunia made some good saves that kept us in the game but then another blunder. That is the way he is! We need a much better and consistant goalie. Where will we find one? Bond just does cut it for me as yet. Why are we so weak at the end of games?

Its a shame; Almunia's been a good keeper for us over the last couple of seasons; but there has now been to many mistakes. Im MOP he has cost us a number of pionts. I know all players have good and bad games and I'm sure a number of you will shout me down and reflect on his past performance's. However I think its time to say thanks for all your efforts. Now give Bond a turn over the next remaining games. The playoffs are a non starter, lets look forward to next season. I also think the Pozzo's should let Peppe have a say in who he would like in the squard for next season.
I have enjoyed this season to a degree early games cost us and I think Zola felt his hands had been tied too much to change things around.

Yes he does make some outstanding saves but count the number of mistakes he makes too. And then there's that constant punching!

Listening to the 3CR commentary, it sounded as though the game should have been out of sight in the first 15 mins, as chance after chance went begging. Then McGugan lost possession when he had Deeney in space to his right.

Of course, I thought we'd won it when Abdi scored, but I should have known better. No quibble with the subs, except that they were made far too late. Pudil should have replaced Riera, who had been booked, at half time. Similarly, Murray seemed to inject some attacking threat when he finally came on.

The good news is that, if we can keep the backbone of this team together, especially Deeney, we could do a Leicester next season.

Even THAT Leicester game, whilst he started a sequence that produced 15 seconds of unbelievable drama, it was a poor penalty that hit his legs and an even worse follow up shot in to his midriff. So take that away and how many games has he actually won for us? Just asking the question.

I can't believe some of these posts I am reading. I am as frustrated as everyone and the last minute goals are beyond words but to blame Almunia???
He is one of the best keepers in the league and we are lucky to have him. For the Telegraph to call him the worst keeper Arsenal have had under Wenger, when he made nearly 200 appearances for them is laughable. They have not had a better goal keeper since getting rid of him (Lehman was there with him) and it is no coincidence they have won NOTHING since he left them.
Our problem is the amount of pressure we cause to our defence and him, eventually something has to give and it inevitably has all too many times.
I do agree we need an out field captain and that this probably will be his last season with us but the bloke is quality and some of you may not realise just how much till he has gone.

Sorry but Millwall were there for the taking today. Lots of space that we simply did not exploit. Riera had a poor game and should have been replaced by Pudil much earlier.
McGugan does not work hard enough; scored a good goal but should have put TD in during the second half but tried to be to clever. Missed Bottochio work rate today; gave opposition to much space.
TD needs support up front; when Anya went off there was a case for bringing Ranegie on to help create space for TD.
Good news is Hoban had a great game alongside Angella.
I fear no play off this season but with a few additions should have a real chance next season.

Fair play to blame Almunia for goal but he did keep us in game with two stunning saves. In addition we gave away a number of unnecessary corners so creating pressure for ourselves.

Agree with that Bucks and as much as I thought Ekstrand was good last year I do believe he is a weak link now. Hoban and Angella were good today but Ekstrand gets pushed off the ball and is weak in possession too often. We desperately miss a Eustace type character to close out games with a bit of tactical injury, slowing down play, talking to other players etc. Sanninon needs to work out how we can close these games out otherwise we are not going to be a serious promotion contender next year and he wont be manager.

I can accept Almunia has made the odd mistake and maybe he could have done better for the equaliser but to say "Almunia lost us this game" when we didn't even lose the game is absolutely crazy.
If you are a true WFC fan I will put it down to Saturday night drunkenness.
I would think Bond has learned and gained a hell of a lot from a goalie of Almunia's quality being at our club, I will say it again, he is one of the best in the league.

Still some of you talk about the play offs. We are now in the bottom half of the table. We are there because we are not good enough. Today was typical. There were a few really good moves in the first half and we got a took the lead. However then we were all over the place and Almunia saved us from being level at half time with a great save.

Generally this squad is just not good enough and once they start hoofing it in the air the style is rubbish. I do hope that next season we will build on this but when you think of all the players that came to Watford this season and how many subsequently moved on I fear the same will happen next season too.

Especially of Nani is still here ! Get rid of him, give the manager more say in recruitment and give the captaincy to a midfielder and I reckon we stand a chance.

I personally think we aren't that far away from having a very realistic chance of promotion next season with Sannino in charge. Suggestions about changing manager again are laughable. He has come in mid season and taken charge of a team low on confidence and in a poor form, in that time we have broken/equalled our record for consecutive home wins and clean sheets, we're much tougher to beat, if it wasn't for injury time goals we would have beaten both automatically promoted teams. I think we should give the guy real credit. It's frustrating for everyone letting in goals so late in games but if we hadn't had this problem we'd comfortably be in the play offs. With a full pre-season under his belt to truly implement his ideas, with a fit Abdi who has been a real miss and a few signings I can't see anything but us flying high next season. Having the Pozzo's in charge is the best thing to happen to Watford in years on and off the pitch and it is evident our expectations have changed with it. We will get into the Premier league, theres no doubt about it, its just a case of when. COYH.

Almunia according to 3CR made some great saves. Seeing the goal on the BBC League programme, the ball took a horrible, unpredictable bounce, not sure he could do much about that! Listening to the commentary, Derek Payne and Jon Marks clearly thought Manuel was at fault, but having seen the goal on the telly, it was more down to a bad pitch. Even Neil Warnock, not WFC's best mate suggested that Holloway should buy the groundsman a bottle of champagne!

But playing on the counter in the first half, our final pass was just not good enough and McGugan too often tries for glory rather than plays for the team. Had we played on the counter, like last season, we would have been out of sight by half time unless the shooting boots were left behind or their keeper had a blinder.

I normally agree with you but I'm sorry, that was a horrendous error by Almunia. Yes, the ball may have bounced up a bit but there was no deflection or sideways deviation. He just needed to go on one knee and gather, but no, he collapses in a heap and misses it. He could have made some effort for the first one as well.

You should stop fantising about homosexual acts. Nothing wrong with being gay, obviously, but projecting your tendancies onto others is wrong.
