The Watford forward says his team felt victory over Wolves was ‘a matter of time’ after Troy Deeney’s stoppage-time penalty
After Michael Oliver blew his whistle to mark the end of normal time at Wembley on Sunday, less than 90 seconds after Troy Deeney had blasted in the penalty that levelled the scores between Watford and Wolves at 2-2, the teams gathered on either side of the halfway line to compose themselves before half an hour that would test the limits of their physical endurance and decide the game. For the Watford players, who had dragged themselves back from a two‑goal deficit with 11 minutes to play, all uncertainty had gone.
“Literally, there was no doubt in our minds that we were going to go on and win it,” says Andre Gray. “We were all egging each other on – we all knew that this was our time. We didn’t score in the last minute for no reason. It was our time. We knew that they had stepped back and weren’t pushing forward as much, and we just felt like we had them. It was just a matter of time.”
