Goalie gaffe of the week: Adrian Mariappa og (Scott Loach error), Watford 2 – Bristol City 2

Leading 2-0 in the Championship on Tuesday night, Watford were pegged back to 2-2 with the equalising goal a nightmare for Hornets custodian Scott Loach.

In fairness to the former England Under-21 keeper, he immediately apologised on Twitter for his gaffe:

“Taxi for Loach! Apologies to all Watford fans who had to see that! Hold my hands up completely. On to the next one… No bobble guys. Just a horrid error lol! Love how one mistake makes people churp up!”

Watford boss Sean Dyche also sympathised: “Scott will think about that a thousand times but he’s only human. It was just unfortunate.”
