Rovers- Watford quality carved us open

Rovers- Watford quality carved us open

Bristol Rovers boss Paul Trollope reckons his Pirates were "right in the game throughout and produced some good attacking football" but were undone by a moment of Hornets quality from Will Hoskins in last night`s 1-0 Carling Cup defeat.

The former Derby midfielder, in charge at Memorial Stadium, saw his team rarely threaten debutant Scott Loach in the Hornets goal and conceded "They [Watford] carved us open for the first time and it was a quality finish".

Trollope added "Watford had a lot of youth and pace in their side, which meant they stretched us at times. It`s tough coming to places like Watford and, at times, we had to defend very well for periods.'

In truth it was a controlling, professional performance from the Watford kids and a host of first team squad players and VitalWatford don`t quite agree with the Pirates boss when he reckoned his side "deserved extra time".

In fact, Trollope admitted to the official Rovers site "…in the second half I don`t think we passed the ball as well, certainly not well enough to create enough chances against a team like Watford".

So we`ll take 1-0 thankyou, wait for Hoskins to warm the bench on Saturday and roll on Charlton.
