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

Dyche: 'I've tried not to mention the officials'

Sean Dyche was left with a mixture of emotions this afternoon as his side drew 2-2 at Peterborough United.

The boss was pleased with his side's performance, but disappointed that they were unable to cap an excellent attacking display with three points.

Dyche was also left bemused by the refereeing performance of referee Mr Phil Gibbs.

The Hornet's fell one behind to a Lee Tomlin penalty after Martin Taylor was adjudged to have man-handled a Posh player.

However, Troy Deeney levelled for the 'Orns in the 26th minute before Sean Murray bagged another free-kick to put Watford in the lead.

The lead was short-lived sadly, and six minutes later, transfer-listed forward Paul Taylor scored the equalizer to earn his side a point.

Speaking afterwords to The Official Site, Dyche for once mentioned the officials:

'Martin Taylor gives their player the tiniest of nudges, but their defender has panicked and thrown an arm up thinking there'll be a free header for us if he doesn't.' Said Dyche.

'It's a penalty - simple as that, and in the summer I'll be looking to get to the bottom of just why we get so few.

'Because we've probably had around a dozen very decent claims not awarded across the year.

'I've tried really hard not to mention the officials after games, because I'm not sure it adds any value and I'm certain our fans don't want to hear me bleating on about it every week.'

Watford complete their fixtures in a week's time with a visit from Middlesbrough.
