Sean Dyche pulled no punches following Watford’s 2-1 victory over Ipswich Town this afternoon, and was candid enough to admit his side were second best.

Watford extended their unbeaten run against the Tractor Boys to a whopping 15 games – a run spanning 15 years = moving up to 13th in the process.

Town took the lead through former Arsenal utility man Jay Emmanuel-Thomas before a Sean Murray equaliser.

With just eight minutes left on the clock Troy Deeney grabbed the winner for the ‘Orns.

Speaking afterwords to UK Eurosport, Dyche said:

‘I thought they were two good finishes and two real moments of quality in a game that was hard to get quality into due to our wonderful surface, which is interesting. We’re hoping for a new one [pitch] in the summer but it’s getting to a point now where it’s very, very difficult to play on.’

Dyche continued:

‘Let’s make no mistake, they were the better side in the first half. We started very brightly, we had arguably the best chance of the first half and should have been 1-0 up. But then we gave away a really poor goal and to be honest, could have been at least two down at half-time.’

Watford are back on the road next Saturday as they head to Elland Road to do battle with Neil Warnock’s Leeds United.
