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

Dyche slams sloppy defending from set-pieces

Sean Dyche pulled no punches in his assessment following defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace yesterday afternoon.

The Hornets fell behind after 22 minutes through Wilfried Zaha before a brace from Chris Martin and one from Kagisho Dikgacoi put the 'Orns to the sword.

Speaking to the press afterwords, Dyche was honest in his assessment, blaming his side's sloppy defending for the heavy defeat:

'The only positive is that it's a massive reminder that if you come away from your performance levels, whether it be just five, ten or arguably 20 per cent today, then any team in this division can hurt you.' Dyche told The Official Site

The gaffer continued:

'Yet again, it is a reminder about detail, key to that is set pieces mixed in with the key fact of being absolutely in the right state to play, both mentally and physically. We were just off that today.

'It is a real good reminder for the players that you have to focus on every detail. We talk about it a lot because games can change very quickly.'

It doesn't get any easier for the Hornets who face Southampton at the Vic' next weekend.
