Goalscorer Ben Watson has said that Watford still have plenty more to fight for this year despite passing the magic 40 point mark in the game against West Bromwich Albion.

With Watson’s 27th minute goal being enough to decide the points come the full time whistle at The Hawthorns, speaking to the Official Site in his own post game press conference, he admitted that making the 41 point mark in the Premier League had made it an incredible season for the club following promotion last year, but the players still had the chance to make it a special season with what the club still have to fight for.

Five games left meaning 15 points to really boost our places in the table, plus a certain FA Cup semi final at Wembley are on the cards on Sunday as well.

‘For ourselves it was a fantastic result, a massive three points. Going 1-0 up, them getting two penalties and Heurelho saving both was incredible, but it was fully deserved and a massive three points for us. Most importantly it was three points today. Before the game we were sitting on 38 points and I think in the back of people’s minds you can still go down with 38 points, but to break that and get 41 on the board with a semi-final to come, it’s been an incredible season so far. But we’ve achieved nothing. It’s been an incredible season, but it could be a special season.’

With two of the bottom three winning this weekend as well, Watson also conceded that it had been a timely victory for Watford with recent disappointments, as it gave us a good boost in terms of relegation worries with the games coming up, but also some renewed confidence going into the Crystal Palace game.

‘With both Sunderland and Newcastle winning, if we didn’t win today all of a sudden they close the gap on us, but we’ve won the game and we’ve opened up that gap. We’ll enjoy it, we’ve got another game Wednesday and then the semi-final Sunday, but our next game is an important one. If we can win that or get something there then great, and then we’ll enjoy the semi-final.’
