Watford boss Boothroyd: The performance was good

Boothroyd said: “The performance was good and there were a lot of positives that point to us winning.

“We have improved since we have come into this division and we need to keep doing that.

“When we play as well as we have in this game you expect to win but we didn’t.

“I am surrounded by a tough group of players and we have to keep going and keep fighting.”
