'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Dyche: 'Always going to be a tough place to come'

Sean Dyche was honest in his assessment at full-time at St. Andrew's today, praising a Birmingham City side that comfortably beat his Hornets.

Watford started brightly enough but a 35th minute header from Curtis Davies got the ball rolling for the Blues.

A second Davies header on the hour mark did for Watford before Chris Burke drilled home a third inside the last 10 minutes.

Speaking afterwords to The Watford Observer, Dyche said:

"They have good players and it was always going to be a tough place to come."

The gaffer continued:

"We were unlucky to be 1-0 down at half time as we had put in a good performance in the first half and kept the ball well.

"By the time they got the second it was a scrappy but even game. They are a strong and powerful side and they have a column which says zero home defeats this season for a reason.'

Watford will now face to welcome distraction of an F.A Cup tie with Tottenham Hotspur next Friday at the Vic', live on ESPN. The clash will interrupt a most unwelcome run of three straight league defeats, with just one goal scored.
