Millwall edge closer to relegation as they lose 2-0 at home promotion-chasing Watford.

Watford's fine form has continued with a 2-0 win away at relegation-threatened Millwall.

Matej Vydra gave The Hornets a half-time lead with an unstoppable volley from 20 yards, before Adlene Guedioura wrapped up the points with a close-range finish in the second half.

The Hornets made a fast start and sent a warning sign to Millwall as Troy Deeney got in behind the defence and forced a save from David Forde after 37 seconds.

The captain went close again ten minutes later, as he looped a header from Guedioura's cross just over the bar, but the South London side couldn't keep them out for long, as Vydra's volley flew past Forde in the 26th minute.

Ben Watson went close to doubling their lead a few minutes later, but he pulled his effort wide after Juan Carlos Paredes found him in the box with a low cross.

After the break Millwall almost drew level through Shaun Williams, who curled a free kick inches past the post.

However, Watford got the second goal of the game as Ikechi Anya set up Guedioura to slot the ball into the back of the net from eight yards.

Millwall kept fighting, and came close to getting back into it thanks to Aiden O'Brien, but his effort was saved low down by Heurelho Gomes, before substitute striker Magaye Gueye volleyed wide from inside the box.
