Flores delighted with Hornets

Watford head coach Quique Flores saw his side's unbeaten start to the season continue on Saturday and praised their performance in the goalless draw with West Brom.

The newly-promoted Hornets dominated proceedings at Vicarage Road but were unable to find a way past the visiting defence, despite creating no less than 16 goal-scoring chances.

But Flores was pleased with the effort of his players on the day, claiming the only missing piece in the puzzle was the all-important goal that never came.

The result made it two draws in succession for the Hertfordshire outfit, who held Everton 2-2 on the opening day of the campaign.

Speaking to Hornets Player after the match, Flores said: "The first goal is difficult. Maybe if we scored the first goal it would have been different because West Brom would need to equalise and it would have been a different match.

"We put players inside the box, we crossed a lot of times, we had the possession and we won the second balls, but now we will have to wait for the next match.

"I am very pleased with the players and with the performance. We planned before the match and talked about how it is very difficult to play against West Brom because they defend very deep and make it difficult to find space, but we played well.

"We created many attempts, we were really close and we missed some opportunities, but I am happy with the performance."
