Steven Berghuis made a rare appearance in the game against West Ham United last night at Upton Park, and despite the result, he was pretty pleased with his own showing on Wednesday evening.

Speaking to the Official Site in his own post game press interview following the three one defeat, Berghuis was pleased to have made his eighth showing of the season as a second half substitute (his first for six months) and he’s hoping he impressed.

‘”From a team point of view it was a disappointing evening. West Ham of course is a good team but to be 3-0 down after 50 or 60 minutes is not good. But it was good to see a stadium again and to feel the atmosphere. This is what I came to England and to Watford for, and I feel good after this game.’

With Berghuis’ free kick setting up Sebastian Prodl for the consolation on the evening, he felt the attacking intent in the final 30 minutes was one of the positives we could take from the game.

‘An assist is an assist, but the finish from Sebastian made it an assist so I thanked him for the great goal. Ikechi Anya also came on and we had some pace on the sides. I tried to get on the ball in between the lines and find him behind the defence, and it worked well a few times. We played a little bit more in the opponent`s half and with Ikechi, me, Troy Deeney and Nordin Amrabat we were dangerous. The goal helped, it gave us a little bit of extra energy. The fans believed and we believed, and if the 3-2 had come straight after maybe we could have drawn.’

He ended his interview with praise for the travelling fans and their support of the side on the evening.

‘All the time they come with 2,000 or 3,000 and I`ve never seen this before. The club Watford and the fans from Watford are great. Every time away they are almost louder than the home fans, and I`ve never seen this before.’
