Gracia Rues Sloppy Defending

Gracia Rues Sloppy Defending

Watford boss Javi Gracia was unhappy with the way his side conceded the goals in a 2-1 defeat against Wolves on Saturday.

Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota struck to earn the victory at Vicarage Road and gain a little revenge following their FA Cup semi-final defeat to the Hornets three weeks ago.

Jimenez opened the scoring when he headed in his 17th goal of the season from Jota’s cross four minutes before the break.

Watford levelled soon after the break when Andre Gray pounced, drilling in a loose ball after Ryan Bennett’s poor back pass gifted Gerard Deulofeu a chance.

But Jota volleyed in the winner when Ben Foster went AWOL coming out to claim Ruben Neves’ deep centre with 13 minutes left. “I’m disappointed and sad – we wanted to get a better result, but it was impossible,” said Gracia. “In all the games, whenever we have conceded goals, there have always been mistakes, but in the last few games we have been conceding avoidable goals.” “Before the game, we knew our target was to try and play in Europe – and at this moment, it is the same. “We have two chances – if we are not able to achieve seventh position, the other way to Europe is to try and win the cup final.”
