Foster: “Both Of Them Work So Hard”

Golden Boys Goalkeeper Ben Foster thinks that Watford's front two are causing real problems for the opposition this season due to their tireless work-rate.

Andre Gray leads the club's scoring charts this season with three goals in six league games (only matched by Roberto Peryera), while Troy Deeney has two goals and an assist to his name as well.

Speaking after the 1-1 draw with Fulham on Saturday, Foster heaped praise on the Hornets' strikers after a good start to the season for the dynamic duo.

“Gray and Deeney compliment each other really well,” said the Goalkeeper.

“Troy gets more of the headlines, but both of them work so hard and it’s a pleasure having people like that work for you.”

It's the relentless nature of their pressing game from the front that causes so much havoc to opposition defences - with Alfie Mawson hooked at half-time on Saturday after having a torrid first 45 minutes playing against the Hornets' in-form front two.

And a lot of that stems from Watford's improved fitness levels this season - something that Foster attributes to the hard yards put in on the training pitches and in the gym.

“Pre-season was tough and the fitness levels are so high, so don’t worry about those two getting tired,” said Foster.

“They are constantly working, and it’s good for a goalie knowing if you get the ball up there they will keep chasing.”
