Lee hoping for Hornets run

Watford goalkeeper Richard Lee is hoping for a run in the Hornets first team after his starring role in the 3-0 weekend win at Southampton. The 26-year-old, who is in the final year of his contract with Watford, saved two first-half penalties at St Mary's, having stepped in in the absence of shoulder injury victim Mart Poom. Lee told The Daily Mirror: "This chance came out of the blue and I had to make the most of it. "Hopefully I'll now get a run in the team. It's been a bit of a stop-start season, and it's a big season for me, because I'm in the last year of my contract. "This is a tough place to come, so it is very pleasing to win as comfortably as we did. "I've never saved two penalties in a game before, apart from a shoot-out. I don't think I've ever faced two in a game before."
