Malky: Watford weren't at the races

Braveheart Watford boss Malky Mackay has admitted his Hornets were also-rans as they found the going tough to firm during Saturday`s 2-1 defeat to a Doncaster at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Mackay told the waiting press that Watford simply "weren`t at the races today as they say" and never got off and running against their odds-on favourite hosts, insisting "I was disappointed with the fact that we didn`t play as well as I know we can...".

Even despite a late late Helguson injury time penalty (after Will Hoskins fell at the final furlong under pressure from a bad Sam Hird tackle), Watford were well off the pace - and 1 win in 7 has seen them fall right off the chasing pack as the Championship runners and riders er 'jockey` for position.

In fact, you can`t help but think Malky will be cracking the whip after he stated to the 'fficial site "I don`t think we were as 'at it`...We`ll play better than that this season and we will play better than that next week".

But unlike some of the high profile big league bosses who simply won`t accept they are bad losers, Mackay was quick to praise the opposition, adding "Doncaster were just a bit snappy and sharper than us. They got to the ball quicker when it was up for grabs...they deserved it".

So, it`s clearly a case of horses for courses and all that!!!
