Wolves beat Watford to keep hope of seventh place alive

Watford 1-2 Wolves

Wolves moved four points clear of Watford in the race for seventh place in the Premier League as goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota helped Nuno Espirito Santo’s side earn all three points at Vicarage Road.

Jimenez opened the scoring with his 13th league goal of the season, turning Jota’s low cross past Ben Foster from point-blank range.

Andre Gray capitalised on an error from Ryan Bennett to equalize for Watford shortly after the restart, but a mistake from Foster allowed Wolves to retake the lead with 13 minutes remaining.

Foster misjudged Ruben Neves’ long ball into the Watford penalty area, allowing Jota to head into the unguarded net to seal the win for the visitors.

The result lifts Wolves on to 54 points, while Watford drop to ninth.
