Micah scored his first goal for Villa but it wasn’t enough to secure a much-needed three points against Watford, the visitors securing a 3-2 win.
The dismal 4-0 defeat at the hands of Everton in their last league outing called for a much better performance against the Hornets, something the players did deliver, but the defensive toils continued as Villa broke the club’s record after a 13th game without a win.
Odion Ighalo opened the scoring, collecting Ben Watson’s deflected shot and beating Brad Guzan.
The Villa crowd were silenced but they had reason to cheer soon after as Micah grabbed an equaliser, rising above his marker to steer Jordan Veretout’s free-kick home to make it one-apiece.
Not long after the restart Watford were ahead again, Alan Hutton’s unfortunate interception coasting past Guzan. Troy Deeney made it 3-1 and put daylight between the sides, and despite Jordan Ayew’s fine late goal, Villa suffered another loss to leave the side seven points clear of safety.
