Result: Troy Deeney scores either side of half time as Watford beat Wigan Athletic

Troy Deeney scored twice as Watford beat Wigan Athletic in their Championship clash at Vicarage Road.

Troy Deeney scored a late winner to give Watford their first home win in three games as they beat Wigan Athletic in the Championship this afternoon.

Watford made a fast start and took the lead when Ikechi Anya headed the ball across goal to Troy Deeney, who found the far corner from a tight angle.

Anya was proving to be a menace down the left-hand side and he almost set up a second for Deeney but his two crosses were scrambled away by the Wigan defence, before another pull-back just evaded Gianni Munari.

Leon Barnett had a good chance for the visitors but his header flew straight at the keeper, while James McClean forced Gomes into a smart save at his near post.

The visitors' pressure paid off when McCann headed in McClean's corner just before half time to send the teams in level.

After half time, Ben Watson almost repeated McCann's goal but his header flashed past the far post and James McClean forced Gomes into another near-post save as the Latics pushed hard.

Both sides struggled to create many clear-cut opportunities in the second period, but Deeney headed in Anya's cross at the far post to give the Hornets victory.
