ISAAC SUCCESS CAME off the bench to rescue a point for Watford as they twice came from behind to secure a 2-2 draw with Bournemouth in a lively clash at Vicarage Road.

Success headed home a pinpoint cross from Jose Holebas just after the hour to secure a point that keeps both sides locked together in the Premier League table on eight points.

Callum Wilson had put the visitors in front in the first-half with a close-range header, before Troy Deeney marked his 250th Watford appearance with his 99th goal just after the break.

Substitute Joshua King then scored the quickest goal by a substitute in the Premier League so far this season, finding the net from the edge of the box just 44 seconds after coming off the bench.

But within a minute, fellow-substitute Success ensured a share of the spoils with a well-placed header at the back post.

The result marked the fifth time in the last seven meetings that the two sides have finished all square and extended Bournemouth’s winless run at Vicarage Road that dates back to 1997.
