Gracia: We should have killed the game in the first half

Watford manager Javi Gracia admitted he was disappointed that his side could only take a point from today’s encounter with Fulham at Craven Cottage.

The Hornets got off to the best possible start when in-form striker Andre Gary netted after 2 minutes and Gracia’s side continued to dominate throughout the first period, but were unable to add to their lead despite creating some excellent opportunities.

Fulham, however, emerged as a different team after the break and deservedly equalised through Aleksandar Mitrovic on 78 minutes, leaving Gracia to rue the fact his team had not made more of their superiority during the first 45 minutes.

“We had chances in the first half, chances to kill the game. We didn’t do it in the second and made a mistake. After that we got only one point. We are a little bit disappointed.” Gracia told Sky Sports.

It has still been an excellent start to the season from Watford who sit on 13 points after their opening six Premier League games.
