WATCH: One Of The Most Incredible Play-Off Moments Three Years On

WATCH: One Of The Most Incredible Play-Off Moments Three Years On

If you're looking forward to an exciting last day of the season there's some bad news I'm afraid, there's almost nothing to play for in the Premier League on Sunday. Of course there's still a small chance that Manchester City will lose to Swansea City. So let's recall some proper drama from two Premier League clubs from three years ago.

It was May 2013 and two then former Premier League sides, Watford and Leicester, faced each other in the Championship play-off semi-final. Leicester won the first leg at the King Power Stadium 1-0.

Back at Vicarage Road for the second leg Watford took a 1-0 lead through a Matej Vydra volley only for their lead to be wiped out by David Nugent. Vydra's second levelled the scores on aggregate and with no away goal rule the match looked to be heading for extra time and penalties.

In the dying minutes of added on time Marco Cassetti was adjudged to have brought down Anthony Knockaert in the box and the Leicester man picked himself up to take the penalty. At this point it's only fair to let the action do the talking:

Seven Years Ago Today, That Watford-Leicester Play-Off Madness Took Place

Almunia's brilliant double save, the counter attack goal and the reaction from Deeney and the fans just make the whole sequence incredible and is one of the most dramatic moments in play-off history.

Watford would go on to lose to Crystal Palace in the play-offs. Leicester had to wait till the next season to go up to the Premier League as champions whilst the Hornets needed to wait a further a year going up this time as runners-up.

It's incredible to see what a difference three years can make, from semi-final heartache to Premier League champions!
