However, the forward's joy was short-lived as, lunging for a ball across the box, the player collided with Watford keeper Heurelho Gomes and took a hefty blow to his left knee, resulting in being taken off on a stretcher.
Town then doubled their advantage in the 23rd minute with a wonderful pass from Mathias 'Zanka' Jorgensen who found Collin Quaner with the German then playing an inviting right-footed cross into Aaron Mooy to find the back of the net.
Not long after the second goal, Watford’s main striker and captain Troy Deeney was dismissed for a two-footed lunge from the back of Quaner.
Many of the Blue White Army would have thought the game was over when Laurent Depoitre struck to make it 3-0 soon after the break.
But there quickly became a sense of uncertainty when Jonathan Hogg was sent-off for a soft second yellow and Watford appeared to have turned a corner, leading to a 68th minute wonder-goal by Abdoulaye Doucoure.
Yet Town withstood the Hornets’ barrage and broke forward themselves with Depoitre earning a penalty and Mooy coolly dispatching it to seal Huddersfield Town's first away win in seven games.
