Watford striker Darius Henderson's first goal of the season will be 'a weight off his shoulders'.
Adrian Boothroyd believes the penalty scored at West Ham will do the former Gillingham man's confidence the power of good.
Henderson had not previously scored since netting in last May's play-off final win over Leeds but kept his nerve from the penalty spot to secure a vital win for his team.
"He has taken a lot of stick and when you are a striker obviously it affects your performance," said Boothroyd.
"He has missed some absolutely belting chances but has kept going and deserves credit for that.
"The fans have stuck with him and it is a weight off his shoulders now."
