It is really important to remain positive and adopt a glass-half-full mentality after this tough, challenging year so we'll do just that here. Watford extended their handy little run to one defeat in ten matches with a point here at the City Ground and made ground on the top two during this latest quick-fire round of fixtures in the Championship.
With two home matches to come, at a ground where they have scored 14 goals in their last five games and won six out of seven, the Golden Boys are handily placed and well set to have a right good crack at landing one of the automatic spots in the remaining 33 fixtures. If that is achieved, as it should be given the quality and depth in the squad, no-one will be dwelling on the back-to-back goalless draws on the road in the build-up to Christmas, just like you don't remember the pair of draws against Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest in October of the promotion season in 2014/15.
Preston and Luton showed Bournemouth and Norwich respectively yesterday and this evening just how treacherous this league can be and that there is always a banana skin just around the corner. The point gained here might, on reflection, actually resemble one gained in the final analysis. Yes, the Golden Boys could have gone top tonight and made a statement, but it's where you finish in May that counts.
