Troy Deeney saw an early effort deflected narrowly wide for the visitors before goalkeeper Jonathan Bond pulled off a double save at the other end from Kevin Doyle and Bjorn Sigurdarson.

Deeney had another chance midway through the half, but his header was comfortably gathered by Carl Ikeme.

The Wolves goalkeeper denied Marco Cassetti's near-post drive on 32 minutes, but he could do nothing about Abdi's free kick on 42 minutes.

The midfielder lifted the ball over the wall from 25 yards and into the top corner to give Watford the lead.
