Success: “We’re Looking To Finish In Style”

By: Watford FC Staff

Isaac Success says Watford still hope to finish their extremely successful 2020/21 promotion campaign on a high despite losing to play-off contenders Brentford this afternoon.

The Hornets were on the wrong end of a 2-0 defeat on their first visit to the Brentford Community Stadium, a week on from securing automatic promotion back to the Premier League.

A Marcus Forss goal and Ivan Toney’s penalty were enough to confirm a second successive third-placed finish for the Bees, who will face either Bournemouth or Barnsley in the play-off semi-finals.

“Brentford are a top team and they’ve been competitive since the beginning of the season,” said Success, speaking to Hive Live. “We tried to get the three points but unluckily for us we’re leaving the stadium with no points.

“The boys have been giving everything in training week in, week out, even after the promotion.

“We’ve been fully focused on the coming games, so everyone will be upset right now in the dressing room but we’ll go home, get back to training and try to get the last three points of the season next weekend.”

Watford were without the injured Kiko Femenía, Nathaniel Chalobah, Carlos Sánchez, Ismaïla Sarr and João Pedro in West London, and then lost both Joseph Hungbo and Tom Cleverley during the opening half-hour.

But when asked whether so many changes disrupted the team, Success said: “Not really because the players coming in can fit into the positions and the tactics of the team.

“I think the boys were just a little bit heavy and fatigued because it’s been a long season.

“We wanted to come here and get the three points, but now we’re looking to finish in style against Swansea.”
