Aidy disappointed with draw

Watford boss Aidy Boothroyd was disappointed after only managing to gain a point at home to Fulham.

The Hornets were two goals to the good but found themselves trailing with three minutes on the clock following some slack defending.

But the Hornets battled back to salvage a point, pleasing Boothroyd with their fighting spirit.

"You know I'm quite a positive person and I always look for the good in things and I am pleased with the way we came back," explained the Watford boss.

"At 2-0 we have had a great start to the second half and I would fully expect us to go and win that game comfortably, but full credit to Fulham for coming back, and full credit for us coming back but I am still disappointed," continued Boothroyd.

The Hornets looked set for their first three points of the Premiership campaign after England Under-21 international Ashley Young had doubled Watford`s advantage after the re-start but Watford shot themselves in the foot, something which Aidy feels is a learning curve for his young side.

"Tonight it's another point but I'm very disappointed it wasn't three. We were 2-0 up and really we have thrown it away," he said. "There are a lot of young players in there, a lot of people who haven't played in The Premier league before.

"We went through this last year and managed to overcome it quite quickly, but tonight we panicked, we were worried about conceding."

However, team spirit is an integral part of Watford success and despite individual mistakes Boothroyd would not point the finger at any team member.

He concluded: "I think it's down to us, we are accountable for what we do whether it's defending or attacking, but we win together, we lose together and we draw together."
