Aidy on 'minor setback'

Aidy on 'minor setback'

Watford boss Aidy Boothroyd saluted the character of his players after nine-man Watford went down 2-1 to Leeds United.

"We've held out for a period of time with 10 and then nine men so we've really showed our character," he the club's official site. "There was an untried combination in midfield tonight and some tiring legs towards the end but the players never stopped working and, even with nine met at the end, we were the team forcing corners and half-chances," added the thirty-five year-old manager.

Boothroyd believes that his have-a-go Hornets, one of the fittest teams in the league, do not like playing second-fiddle to anyone. "That's where we're at as a group of people. It's fantastic really. We don't go away from home to be second best to anyone - we just have a go." Aidy added:"I've talked before about how we're one of the fittest teams in the League and I think that showed itself again tonight. Leeds only won 2-1, let's remember, having had 25 minutes of the game with at least a one-man advantage."


Boothroyd also spoke of the high regard that holds his players and staff in. "I wouldn't swap any of the players or staff here for anyone at any other team in this division, that's how much I think of this group.”We're a terrific team, I've got some great people working with me and we're now looking forward to Brighton."

Despite the defeat the manager still believes that the Golden Boys have no one to fear and are still capable of landing an automatic promotion spot. “We've got no one to fear. We're still gunning for automatic promotion and tonight is just a minor set-back. It's how you bounce back from set-backs that matters."

Watford fans will be hoping Watford can bounce back to form against struggling Brighton at the Withdean Stadium on Saturday.
