Watford and Leeds United are level at half time in their Championship clash at Vicarage Road this afternoon.

Watford and Leeds United have finished level in an injury-hit first half at Vicarage Road.

The Hornets made a bright start to the match as Daniel Pudil took a shot in the opening minute, but Tom Lees was on hand to make a block for the visitors.

Chances were scarce for much of the opening 45 minutes, but Dominic Poleon picked up the ball inside the penalty area inside the final five minutes, tapping it in from close range to give the visitors the lead.

Nathaniel Chalobah had a chance to level just before the break, but Paddy Kenny was able to make the save to protect Leeds's advantage.

A series of injuries, including to Watford goalkeeper Jonathan Bond, in the opening period resulted in 16 minutes of injury time, giving Almen Abdi the chance to level for the home side, blasting the ball in from outside the area.

Currently, the result would not be enough for Watford to move above Hull City and secure an automatic promotion spot.
