Horns require first Aidy

Horns require first Aidy

There mustbe few managers out there, harder to please than Aidy Boothroyd.

After seeing his side come back from two goals down at Colchester Unitedlast night, the Hornets supremo focused on his sides defensive frailties post-match:

'We have to stop shipping goals and if we do that then we can grow as a team and get results like this.'

'If we can tighten up defensively, we should win games.'

He was however happy to praise the spirit and resolute nature of his troops who scored two in the space of as many first half minutes to level the scores in Essex:

'We were a bit concerned to go two goals behind but it just shows the players that we have that we came back.'

And, on that taboo subject of promotion, Boothroyd remained coy in his post-match interview, but was full of praise for the Championship as a whole:

'One minute everything is great and everyone thinks that you are going to romp the league but we didn't think that for one second because there are some very good teams in this league.'

U's gaffer, Geraint Williams was happy to praise the Golden Boys after their show-stopping turnaround:

'We started very brightly but we knew Watford would come back at us,'

'We had to withstand that, which we couldn't do.

'That's why Watford are where they are - we knew it would be a physical test and the one or two times we did not stand up that, we were punished.

'We are creating chances and we scored another two but it wasn't enough to take the points.'

High praise indeed from the home gaffer who must have been frustrated at his own sides defensive slips which cost them three points and three goals.
