'If It's Football, It's Vital'

'Just not our day' says Watford boss

An entertaining game at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday saw Coventry City gain a vital win against promotion chasing Watford to ease their relegation fears.

The Sky Blues were good value for the three points although the visitors fluffed their lines in front of goal on a number of occasions in the second half.

"Just after half time I thought we came out, started well and had four great chances," said Watford manager Malky Mackay.

"We hit the woodwork a couple of times and there was one I couldn't believe we didn't score.

"We obviously lost the second goal at a bad time as it allowed Coventry to certainly breath a lot easier and we then had to chase the game after that.'

The home crowd meanwhile, after a week of off-field stories that confirmed the future of their club is very much in danger, left with a spring in their step for perhaps the first time this year following a positive attacking display inspired by caretaker boss Andy Thorn's tactical reshuffle.

'I was delighted with the way we played in spells,' was his vrdict.

'Everything we worked on, they did. It was a bit nervy at the start which I thought we would be because of our recent record here but we grew into the game.

'Everything we have worked on in training, they stuck at and as the game went on, I thought we played some really good stuff.'
