Mad 5 minutes cost Watford - Malky
Watford caretaker boss Malky Mackay slammed his side for "a mad 5 minutes" and a "lack of nous" after Watford threw away a 1 goal lead to lose 2-1 in the 6 pointer at Barnsley.
The Hornets racked up 13 shots on goal and seemed to be heading to victory after a cute Tommy Smith finish but a quick fire 60-second double gave the Tykes a lifeline.
Speaking to the official site, Mackay said "We`re disappointed because we played some good stuff. We scored a good goal and for 20 minutes in the second half looked fairly comfortable".
The Braveheart caretaker boss then added "If we`d have got a 2nd goal I think we`d have killed them off but we dropped a little too deep to our 18 yard line, invited pressure and in the space of five minutes we`ve lost two goals…".
A 'mad five minutes' indeed.
It seems that the Hornets are being done for every single lapse in concentration even when they`re playing well - a fact not lost on Malky.
Sounding very much like Boothroyd mark II, Mackay added "…it shows that any little error in this division is going to get punished".
Next he`ll start talking about 'oranges being squeezed` or describe Adrian Mariappa as the 'next Paulo Maldini" and we`ll all be doomed!!!!
