Troy Deeney reflects on a disappointing weekend for the Hornets

Deeney | “We Didn't Do Enough”

Skipper Troy Deeney would have been forgiven for slipping quietly out of Selhurst Park and onto the team bus after Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace. 

His unfortunate second-half own-goal tipped the balance in the Eagles' favour, but Deeney fronted up to the BBC cameras after full-time all the same. 

“It was a little lapse in concentration from me,” he rued. 

“It dipped in front of me, it was a mistake - it was a boring 0-0 other than that.”

Few inside the ground would have challenged that assessment, and Deeney admits the Hornets fell short of the quality they wanted on the day. 

“We didn't do enough,” he admitted. 

“I don't remember their keeper having a save to make other than the Doucoure shot. 

“We looked good in possession but didn't do enough with it.”

Nordin Amrabat made a return to action at Palace, and Deeney is hopeful that one of Watford's pre-Christmas bright sparks can prove influential in the run-in. 

“We have some quality coming back off the bench with Nordin coming back," he said.

“We've got two weeks to work hard and go again.”
