(Reuters) – Bottom club Watford’s miserable season continued with a 3-0 defeat to a clinical Burnley at Vicarage Road in the Premier League on Saturday.
Watford have now gone 11 league home games without a win while the victory ended a run of eight away games without a victory for Sean Dyche’s Burnley.
The visitors took the lead through Kiwi international Chris Wood, who hooked home in the 53rd minute after a James Tarkowski header from a corner was deflected towards him — the goal was Wood’s sixth in six games.
Ashley Barnes made it 2-0 from the spot in the 83rd minute, converting after a VAR review ruled Jose Holebas had fouled Barnes in the box.
Defender Tarkowski then wrapped up the win, beating Ben Foster at the second attempt after being left unmarked from a free-kick.
