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

Dyche: 'It was a very flat game'

Sean Dyche was left disappointed after his side failed to take three points from Hull City at the Vic' this afternoon.

James Chester put the hosts ahead early on before Troy Deeney grabbed an equalizer from close-range.

Adrian Mariappa was sent off 25 minutes from time after picking up two bookings in the space of five minutes.

Speaking afterwords to Sky Sports News, Dyche said:

'To sit here marginally disappointed to not beat Hull, who there was an expectation to be in the play-offs, everyone expected us to get relegated and fail, so to be here talking about roughly being around the play-offs and a bit of a flat game and getting a 1-1 [draw] at home, I can't be overly disappointed.'

The gaffer continued:

'It was a very flat game. It started drab and flat. Two sides who, all of a sudden, are nearly around the play-offs and arguably not quite close enough to really get in there.

'It was one of those strange games, the sun comes out and it ends up being a flat, nothing game which we spoke about at half-time.'

Watford head to Brighton this Tuesday after the Seagulls got gubbed 6-0 by West Ham.

Yet another lack luster display... I can't remember us having too many exciting matches at the Vic this season.. Prob Leicester only... We have no pace, pace or pace... I can't remember us having a less boring team in the last 20 years... We aren't the only team without money in the league... Enough of my rant... I hope Taylor signs on soon or he'll be on his way soon... He still lives in the west midlands so clubs around there are a good bet... Cov or someone like that... COYH... The seasons NOT over yet... Unless we can get our moneys back show some passion..

Just arriving at the ground it felt like a very flat end of season encounter. There was no atmosphere and it took until injury time to actually get a song gong properly. Thought that Murray was very quiet in the second half and although Garner played well he wasn't a constant menace, that left us with a real creative lynchpin as Buaben was poor. Deeney suffered as a result in terms of service and subsequently we looked very blunt.
