Terrific Taylor holds Hornets
Paul Taylor's stunning equaliser helped Peterborough avoid a fourth straight npower Championship defeat as Watford were restricted to a 2-2 draw.
Lee Tomlin converted a penalty 13 minutes in for the hosts, but Troy Deeney's regulation tap-in on 26 minutes ensured it would be a contest at London Road.
The Posh rode out a series of slick attacking moves before the break but Watford snatched a deserved lead through a thumping Sean Murray free-kick just minutes after the restart.
It fell to Taylor, though, to clatter home Tomlin's clever pass in the 53rd minute and deny the Hornets all three points.
With both sides' futures already assured in the second tier, the result probably did more to wound Sean Dyche's hopes of guiding Watford to a top-half finish, with Peterborough seemingly content to plan for a second consecutive Championship campaign.
