Wigan's promotion hopes suffered another setback when relegation threatened Watford came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw.

The Hornets knew that they had to get something from the game, with the relegation battle hotting up, but they conceded early through Jason Roberts.

Record signing Roberts fired home when Jason De Vos knocked down Jimmy Bullard's corner on 13.

However, the hosts clawed themselves level just 11 minutes later through Heidar Helguson.

Helguson's form has been crucial to Watford this season, and the Iceland international proved his worth once more when powered home a header from Lee Cook's corner.

John Filan was the busier of the two goalkeepers, and denied Helguson Gavin Mahon and Scott Fitzgerald.

However, Watford needed Alec Chamberlain to keep them level in the dying minutes when the keeper saved well to deny a Lee McCulloch curler.
