Watford defender Craig Cathcart believes the side’s second-half performance against Manchester United is something to build on. Watford went into the game having won their opening four Premier League games – including a comeback victory over Tottenham last time out.
Javi Gracia’s side were not at the races in the opening 45 minutes and were two down at the break but rallied in the second half, leaving defender Cathcart looking at the positives ahead of a trip to Fulham next weekend.
“Our heads were down at half-time but we wanted to go out there and give it our all,” he told the club’s official website.
“I think we did that, we can be proud of the second-half performance and it will probably give us a bit of momentum going into next week.
“2-0 at half-time is never going to be easy but I think we probably deserved to come out with something at the end of the game.
“It is disappointing but there are positives we can take away from our reaction and it is important how we react to this first defeat of the season and next week we have to show what we are about.”
