Super Eagles forward, Emmanuel Dennis scored the winner for Watford in their 1-0 victory over Aston Villa in the Premier League on Saturday.

After a goalless first half that saw the teams struggle, Dennis headed an Ismaila Sarr 78th-minute cross after a counter-attack that proved the difference between both sides.

The goal was the first by Watford since Roy Hodgson took charge and it ended their four-game goal drought as they move up to 18th in the table.

Defeat for Villa means the Steven Gerrard side are now winless in seven of their past eight matches.
