One spectator took to social media to report the homophobic incident, saying that he left the stadium with his brother before full-time, when they heard a section of fans shouting homophobic abuse at an opposition player.

After the incident was brought to the attention of the club, Watford stated, “We have spoken to the supporter who reported this and are working with them to identify the individuals responsible.”

The club added, “We reiterate our zero-tolerance approach to discrimination and how to report it.”
