Following defeat to Stoke City in the Carabao Cup, Watford Head Coach Xisco Muñoz said there were plenty of positives to take out of the performance heading into Newcastle in the Premier League on Saturday.
Two late goals from Sam Clucas and Josh Tymon succumbed the Hornets to a third-round exit, after Ashley Fletcher had earlier cancelled out Nick Powell’s first-half strike.
Spaniard Muñoz explained that the game was an end-to-end encounter with Watford creating chances, but he acknowledged his side were unable to break down the Potters’ defence often enough.
“It was an incredible game,” Muñoz said. “We had a lot of chances and the keeper made lots of saves, we hit the post and we missed shots in the first and second half.
“It sometimes happens in football, but we need to keep going. The positive thing is we are working very hard.
“In the second half, we had the control of the game, with not so many chances.”
