Manager Ian Holloway wasn’t particularly impressed with the performance of the referee in our three one loss to Watford this weekend, but he knows that when the ‘important’ decisions went against us, we should’ve coped with those moments better and not let them affect us as they did.

Speaking to the official site following the game, the manager explained.

‘I don’t think a three one scoreline was a fair reflection on the game. I thought we caused them some problems in both halves of the game but important things, at important moments, went against us.’

Holloway admits they started brightly and got the crowd going, but he was pleased to see us grow into the game and he felt we deserved to take the lead through a Martyn Woolford strike but his disappointment came following that with their goals.

‘Later in the game we got a bit too emotional and wrapped up in the things that went against us a little bit. We should have coped with the situation for their first goal a bit better and for their third, which killed the game for us.’

The manager goes on to say that he felt that when they were 2-1 up, if we could’ve got ourselves level again the game would’ve turned out completely differently but the third goal was crucial for them and it was just too much of a mountain to climb at that point despite our best efforts.

‘I’m disappointed because we have ended up losing both halves of the game, and I thought some of our play deserved more than that.’
