Dyche: 'Ipswich by far the better side'

Sean Dyche pulled no punches following Watford's 2-1 victory over Ipswich Town this afternoon, and was candid enough to admit his side were second best.

Watford extended their unbeaten run against the Tractor Boys to a whopping 15 games - a run spanning 15 years = moving up to 13th in the process.

Town took the lead through former Arsenal utility man Jay Emmanuel-Thomas before a Sean Murray equaliser.

With just eight minutes left on the clock Troy Deeney grabbed the winner for the 'Orns.

Speaking afterwords to UK Eurosport, Dyche said:

'I thought they were two good finishes and two real moments of quality in a game that was hard to get quality into due to our wonderful surface, which is interesting. We're hoping for a new one [pitch] in the summer but it's getting to a point now where it's very, very difficult to play on.'

Dyche continued:

'Let's make no mistake, they were the better side in the first half. We started very brightly, we had arguably the best chance of the first half and should have been 1-0 up. But then we gave away a really poor goal and to be honest, could have been at least two down at half-time.'

Watford are back on the road next Saturday as they head to Elland Road to do battle with Neil Warnock's Leeds United.

Ipswich Fan: Great day at Vicarage, thanks for having me. Was an experience, one of the best match day experiences I've had! Bit aggrieved at how Town didn't put away most of their chances though. Good luck against Leeds! Take care, see you next time!

Glad you enjoyed yourself the right amount Mikey! Wasn't their myself, but the stats and our manager certainly suggested we were a bit on the lucky side to win! From our point of view it's certainly nice to have a team that we have the indian sign over rather than the other way round for once! Hopefully we'll see you again next season.
