Watford manager Roy Hodgson has expressed his satisfaction with the reaction of his players in the win. Southampton 2-1 after the previous match having just lost 0-4 to Wolves.
An important win in this game saw the Hornets go on a rampage, collecting 22 points, equaling the 17th-placed Everton, but they played three more ufabet games.
“I think today we played well from the first minute. On Thursday (lost 0-4 to Wolves) we didn’t do that. We are not the leader we are at the end of the table And when you’re 3-0 down, the players have to show great character to get back from that,” said Hodgson.
“I’m very satisfied with our form today.”
“The players up front gave us the energy to go to the next level from what we said. I think we created quite a few chances to score goals.”
“Today our fans were amazing. It’s like a home game. You cannot ask for more if you are a Watford player.”
Watford manager Roy Hodgson speaking to BBC Sport: “I thought we played well today from the first minute. We weren’t doing that badly on Thursday [against Wolves]. We’re not top of the table, we’re near the bottom and when you’re 3-0 down players have to show enormous character to get back from that.
“I’m really pleased with the performance today. The front players gave us another level of energy from what we’ve been seeing. I thought we created quite a few opportunities to score.
“Our crowd were incredible today – it was like a home game. You can’t ask more if you’re a Watford player.”
