Troy Deeney and a Nathaniel Chalobah stunner from 30 yards put Watford 2-0 up at the break and although Harry Kane's header hauled the hosts back into the game midway through the second half, they couldn't find an equaliser.

"The two goals, at the time that they came, knocked us for six. It affected the players visibly" said Pearson. "And we could have conceded another one before half-time as well.

"The second goal was a quality strike and there wasn't a lot we could have done about that in all honesty.

"We had a go in the second half and it's just not happened for us again.

"We had to make a fist of it in the second half and I thing we did. I think the players worked hard to try and get back into it but, again, it just didn't happen for us.

"We couldn't have got any more attacking players on the pitch and I think the players have given everything again, I couldn't have asked for much more from them.

"But it wasn't enough and unfortunately that's been the story too often this season, and that's a shame because there's been a lot of good things about us this season.

"However, we haven't won enough tight game and our run since early February has been really damaging."

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
