Watford Res 1, Norwich City Res 0

A 69th minute goal by Liam Henderson condemned Norwich City Reserves to a totesport.com Combination defeat at Boreham Wood last night. And there was potentially an added worry for the Canaries when defender Zak Whitbread, who has only recently returned from an injury lay-off, limped off late in the first half.

Cody McDonald squandered two chances to put the Canaries in front within the opening 14 minutes.

And after Henderson's confidently taken goal, Josh Dawkin hit a chance to equalise just wide and Damon Lathrope's powerful late shot was saved by North.

Watford Res: North, Parkes, Oshodi, Bennett, Travner, Bryan, Brooks, Penny (Massey 68), Yiadom, Henderson (Mingoia 72), Gibson. Subs not used: Angus, Bond, isaac.

Norwich Res: Rudd, Spillane, Francomb, Whitbread (Gordon 39), Berthel, Askou (Lathrope 45), Gill, Tudur Jones, Adeyemi, McDonald (Clarke), Kelly, Dawkin. Subs not used: Steer, Clarke, Drmola.
