Aidy: performance warranted win

Watford boss Aidy Boothroyd felt that the Hornets deserved all three points from a pulsating Premiership match with West Ham at Vicarage Road.

"I think it was two points lost rather than one gained," Boothroyd told the official site.

"What we have to remember is that what hasn't been lost is the way in which we played tonight and the way in which we conceded our goal."

"The learning curve continues for us and we can take lots of positives," continued Aidy. "We can be pleased with the fact that we should have beaten West Ham and we played very, very well. On the other hand we can also say that we have to learn fast and stop the other team scoring."

It could be argued that Watford`s performance has merited the maximum number of points from each Premiership game but Boothroyd is keen to emphasise that performances are better than points.

"I'm absolutely encouraged by what I've seen from us so far this season. Over the course of the season, you have to remember that performances are more important than results and we need to be positive in what we do," explained Aidy.

"I think you do get what you deserve in football and it's important to learn from your own mistakes and eradicate them. Tonight we made new mistakes, different from what we did at Everton, but we have to make sure we don't do that again."

The gaffer concluded by paying tribute to Watford`s twelfth man, a vociferous Vicarage Road.

"The fans were outstanding tonight," he said. "They really did make a contribution. We've got to make sure we are difficult to beat home and away, get some momentum going and get things snowballing."
