Size does matter for Watford's Aidy

Despite seeing his Watford troops pick up a 'huge victory' at Ipswich and earn all 3 points in 'a big, big win' against Leicester, Glory Hornet boss Aidy Boothroyd reckons it`s all about 'inches and yards` if they are to get promoted this season.

Speaking after seeing his side put in a 'massive effort' to come back from 2-0 down against Charlton at The Valley, Boothroyd said 'I just reminded the players that it`s the inches that count if they want to win the Championship. Stoke did that last night [versus Scunthorpe] and I just reminded the players of that.'

And in his weekly email to fans, the Hornets gaffer went just that little bit further with his 'size-ist` comments, adding '…it`s about looking your team mates in the eye and trusting one another enough to know that they`ll run the extra yard, stretch that little more in the tackle and leap that little bit higher…'

'If they didn`t already know it, that 45 minutes proved that we can get those extra inches'
