Watford PROMOTED straight back to the Premier League at first time of asking as Sarr scores in 1-0 win over Millwall

WATFORD have joined Norwich by sealing promotion to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

The Hornets needed to beat Millwall at Vicarage Road to seal their spot back in the big time.

And it was club-record £40million signing Ismaila Sarr who ensured a top-two finish with a narrow 1-0 victory.

It looked to be plain sailing when the talented forward bagged from the spot in the 11th minute.

But the hosts couldn't build on their advantage with Xisco Munoz's side grinding out the victory.

Watford had the champagne on ice and wasted no time in celebrating their success on the pitch.

The players then launched Xisco into the air after his appointment in December sparked a remarkable run of form to seal promotion.

In his 24 games in charge, he has picked up 54 points – more than anyone else in the Championship.

Xisco was appointed on Boxing Day, replacing Vladimir Ivic who was axed with the club fifth in the league.
