Fans invade the pitch after a dramatic end to the Watford v Leicester City play-off semi-final second-leg

The Watford v Leicester City Championship play-off semi-final second leg at Vicarage Road on Saturday ended in dramatic fashion when the Hornets scored a winner from a missed Leicester penalty in the dying moments of the match.

It looked to be all over for Watford when referee Michael Oliver awarded a seemingly soft penalty after Leicester’s French midfielder Anthony Knockaert was brought down in the area.

A frantic few minutes followed and a double-save from former Arsenal goalkeeper Manuel Almunia saw the Hornets regain possession and stream down the other end of the pitch to score.

Marvellously calm work from the speedy Ikechi Anya, helped the ball to Fernando Forestieri on the right wing who looped a cross into the area.

The former Villa youngster Jonathan Hogg then managed to nod the ball towards the penalty spot, inviting Troy Deeney to fire home – sparking a pitch invasion from the home fans.

The incredible scenes were remarkably similar to the close of the Brentford v Doncaster United game on the final day of the League One season, Michael Oliver was refereeing that day too.
