  • That's all for the live commentary of this game, thanks for joining us this afternoon. Don't forget to check back for a full match report and reaction from both teams shortly.

  • Forest go top of the table on goal difference and I don't think either manager will argue with a point today. Both sides showed exactly why they're amongst the favourites for promotion this season in what was a great advert for the Championship.

  • It's all over at Vicarage Road and it's finished all square. Andy Reid's early strike gave Forest the advantage before Lewis McGugan's excellent free-kick pulled things level against his former side. 1-1.

  • It really is end-to-end stuff as Forestn go on the attack. Paterson fires well wide after cutting inside with seconds remaining.

  • Fabbrini slices an attempt wide from 20 yards.

  • Abdi and Faraoni both try to force openings to no avail.

  • Free-kick for Forest inside the centre-circle. It's played towards Miller but Cassetti heads away.

  • Forrestieri curls his effort just wide of the post, much to the relief of the Forest defence. Another decent chance for a winner.

  • There will be five minutes of added time.

  • Huge chance for Forest as Miller sees his effort tipped onto the post by Almunia. The striker did well to cut inside but that is a great save.

  • Great play from Fabbrini sees him beat Hobbs before getting a ball across the box, but he can't pick out a man and Forest clear for the time being.

  • Another nervous moment for the hosts as Jack Hobbs' header is on target, only for Almunia to gather.

  • Forest clear the resulting corner and mount an immediate counter attack. Miller's shot is eventually deflected wide but he had men in support there, should have done better.

  • Great save from Darlow who gets down excellently to push away Anya's low strike which looked goal bound.

  • Eric Lichaj is shown the yellow card for tugging Anya's shirt.

  • Less than five minutes remain in this game and it's Watford who look the most likely to take all three points.

  • Fabbrini comes short for the corner but sees his shot blocked. The ball then finds its way to Anya whose delivery is too heavy and it goes behind for a goal kick.

  • Corner for Watford despite a few penalty claims after Cohen and Forrestieri tussled for it.

  • Abdi's free-kick is a waste and it goes straight into the hands of Darlow.

  • Kelvin Wilson is the next to go into the referees book after dragging back Forrestieri who could have been through on goal.
