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

Rodgers Happy As Hornets Bounce Back

Watford boss Brendan Rodgers was happy with his side`s performance against QPR in the goalless draw in W12.

Rodgers picked up his first away point during his short tenure, in the 0-0 draw at Loftus Road, to break the recent trend of away defeats

The former Chelsea coach believed that his side had the better of the game and could have come away with all three points. Speaking to watfordfc.com he spoke of his delight with his side`s performance.

He said: 'I'm very pleased,'

'When we're defensively strong and the motivation is good, we play a terrific quality of football.

'I thought we looked strong defensively today. I've talked to the players about my idea of always dominating and controlling a game, but sometimes you can control the game without the ball.

'In the first half we were dominant but when you play against good teams, there will be moments when you don't have the ball, but you can still be comfortable as long as your organisation and structures are right, and that's what I felt we were."


After the break the tide began to turn as Rangers saw more of the ball, but nevertheless it was Rodgers` Watford who had the best opportunity courtesy of dangerman Lee Williamson.

He continued: 'At half time I felt there was only one team that could win it and that was us.

'In the second half it was more even and we started playing more on the counter attack, because they were being a little more direct and offensive.

'We nearly nicked it back at the end with a wonderful free-kick from Lee Williamson.'
