WATSON: “It's Been An Incredible Season, But It Could Be A Special Season”

WINNING goal-scorer Ben Watson was delighted to play his part in a 1-0 win at West Brom on Saturday, particularly given that victory ensured Watford reached the 41-point mark in the Premier League.

But with five league games still to play, plus the considerable matter of an FA Cup semi-final at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, the midfielder believes there's plenty more yet to come from the Hornets between now and the end of the season. 

"For ourselves it was a fantastic result, a massive three points," said Watson, speaking to watfordfc.com after full-time at the Hawthorns. 

"Going 1-0 up, them getting two penalties and Heurelho [Gomes] saving both was incredible, but it was fully deserved and a massive three points for us. 

"Most importantly it was three points today. Before the game we were sitting on 38 points and I think in the back of people's minds you can still go down with 38 points, but to break that and get 41 on the board with a semi-final to come, it's been an incredible season so far. 

"But we've achieved nothing. It's been an incredible season, but it could be a special season." 

With two of the division's bottom-three winning on Saturday, Watson admitted it was a timely victory over the Baggies, and that the Golden Boys can now focus on achieving positive results at West Ham on Wednesday, and against Crystal Palace on Sunday. 

"With both Sunderland and Newcastle winning, if we didn't win today all of a sudden they close the gap on us, but we've won the game and we've opened up that gap," he said. 

"We'll enjoy it, we've got another game Wednesday and then the semi-final Sunday, but our next game is an important one. If we can win that or get something there then great, and then we'll enjoy the semi-final."
