Watford and Leicester fans were treated to some late drama in their Premier League clash on Saturday afternoon as two goals in added time sealed a brilliant 1-1 draw at Vicarage Road.

Foxes full back Ben Chilwell speared home a wonderful effort on 91 minutes, rocketing in to the top right-hand corner leaving Hornets keeper Ben Foster with absolutely no chance.

But Watford refused to lie down, dramatically levelling things in the closing seconds of the game.

After a last-gasp corner, central defender Craig Dawson stayed alive inside the box to score an equaliser befitting of a top centre forward.

The 30-year-old found a yard and smashed home a quite brilliant scissor kick from close range to ensure parity was restored.

Both sides showed plenty of rustiness in the opening stages with no shots on target inside the first half.

Watford did carry the greater threat after the break, however, as Ismaila Sarr and Roberto Pereyra both tested Kasper Schmeichel in the Leicester goal.

Brendan Rodgers’ side did spring into life in the closing stages as James Maddison was brilliantly denied by Ben Foster.

But just as Chilwell had looked to secure a smash and grab win for the Foxes, the experienced Dawson found himself in the right place at the right time to secure a vital draw.
