Teemu Pukki was goalless when Norwich lost to Watford 0-1. For Watford, the win means the team is very close to joining Norwich and giving up a place in the Premier League.
The other day, it became clear that Norwich would return to the Premier League after a season in the Championship.
With table runners-up Watford beating Norwich on Tuesday night, Watford are also closing in on a place at the top of the football pyramid in England.
Midfielder Dan Gosling scored the only goal of the match in the 57th minute. Gosling already had several chances before the goal, but he managed to exploit only fifth place.
The most important thing is that he hasn’t stopped trying, says Watford coach Xisco Muñoz.
Inside, players make mistakes but must continue to believe in themselves and look to the next opportunity.
He was the second Teemu Pukki in the shooting league without a goal this time. And it’s still positive news that Pukki was able to get through the entire match on all, considering he picked up a knee injury in the weekend’s game against Bournemouth.
Fight all the way in the court
With this win, Watford reduced the points difference between the two teams to five.
Watford also received promotion assistance on Tuesday night from third-table Swansea who met Queens Park Rangers at home. QPR was 1-0 up and out on league points, which means Swansea maintain nine points behind Watford.
With three matches remaining, Watford almost secured his rise. Fourth Table Brentford and Fifth Table Bournemouth still have theoretical chances to overtake Watford: Both teams have four games left and are 10 and 11 points behind Watford, respectively.
Norwich and Watford were relegated from the Premier League after the 2019-20 season. Three to four rounds left of the tournament.
Teemu Pukki has scored 25 goals and is second in the shooting league. Brentford’s Evan Toni came first with 29 goals, while Blackburn’s Adam Armstrong came third with 21 goals.
