Captain Scott Dann spoke the thoughts of his fellow team mates when he said post-match that he saw the draw as two points lost but still tried to take the positives from the match at Watford.
"If you can’t win then make sure that you don’t end up losing the game and that is the way it has finished but when you look at the game, chances and decisions, then you would have to say we have dropped two points here today. It’s a point away from home and we have to take the positives.
"I think we should have been coming in at the break with a bigger lead than we did, maybe if the penalty goes in or one of the other chances we gain more confidence and see the game out as I can’t recall Watford having too many opportunities before their penalty. We could have had another penalty with a challenge on Wilf as well late on in the second half so it does feel like two points dropped after putting in a solid performance, particularly in the second half which gives us all something to build on with the new manager in charge. “
Having only had the one training session with the new manager, Sam Allardyce, Dann believes the work on the training ground that the squad will have this week can only have a positive effect.
“The manager has only been in for a couple of days and I am sure we will continue to work on defending as a team. As the weeks go by we will become more resilient as a team and when we do get ahead like we did we will see more games out and the points will start coming.
“We don’t play again for another few days which gives us more time to work on how we are going to set up for the games we have coming up and if we can put in another performance similar to this one we can start getting some more points on the board. “
