Despite Ipswich fans` continued insistence that Watford play ugly football, Hornets gaffer Aidy Boothroyd reckons his side were “tactically cuter” and “deserved the win” as they beat the Tractor Boys 2-1.

Ok, so the first half performance was far from pretty and, at times, some of the passing was downright offensive on the eye but Boothroyd is adamant that his side were worthy of all 3 points after a storming 2nd half comeback.

The Watford gaffer stated “I thought we were a little bit cuter tactically than we were in the first half?If we hadn`t have got the winner I would have been disappointed because of the chances we had in the match – I thought we deserved it in the end”.

But could Boothroyd put his finger on why it took 45 minutes and a half time reshuffle for his side to find their ‘sexy football` passing game that was simply too good for Ipswich?

Well kinda… He quipped “?we seemed to be enjoying the sun too much in the first half!”

The lesson learned then lads – keep the self-tanning sessions to your spare time please.
