'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Mackay Praises Hornets Belief

Watford caretaker boss Malky Mackay was full of praise for his side as they turned over QPR at Vicarage Road.

The Hornets ended a run of five successive defeats in emphatic fashion this weekend, by dispatching of Rangers 3-0, courtesy of goals from Tommy Smith, Darren Ward and Lee Williamson.

Caretaker boss Malky Mackay hailed his sides confidence boosting win:

'The confidence grew as the game went on, we had a game plan and we stuck to it." he told watfordfc.co.uk

'Once we got the break I thought the boys were surgical and went at them and the boys turned on the pressure and got their just rewards.

'The last couple of weeks we've been looking for a result like that and playing like that without the final cutting edge.'


Mackay was just as happy with his sides defending on the day, as they kept that illusive clean sheet to halt their decline and drag them out of the relegation spots:

'The fact that we then defend the way we did and be resilient I think speaks volumes for the team.

'I've been asking them every day in training to play as a team, so we move over the park together as a unit.

'If that is the case you've always got two or three Watford jerseys around the ball - the minute we win it back we can attack teams and we know we can hurt them.

'But at the same time we've got to lock in at the back and I thought we were magnificent at that today.'


The Hornets now travel to Ashton Gate to take on Gary Johnson`s Bristol City, with a view to escaping a relegation scrap.
