West Brom vs Watford: Match report
Full time score:
Goals: K Ahearne-Grant (45+2nd minute), I Sarr (12th minute)
West Brom’s Steve Bruce: “The most important thing is your performance and what you are looking for, especially early in the season, in terms of fitness levels and how you are trying to play. I couldn’t have wished for a better performance from them. I thought they were excellent from the start to the finish.
“Sometimes in football you don’t get what you deserve, but the performance is the most important thing for me because it was very, very good.”
Watford’s Rob Edwards: “I can’t say I enjoyed it! What I enjoyed was the fight and the heart that we showed, especially in that second half – probably for 90 minutes, really. It wasn’t our night with the ball; I want to give West Brom credit as they were clearly the better team tonight.
“We couldn’t get any rhythm, we couldn’t keep the ball for long enough. We weren’t able to press very well and we adjusted not once but twice. But what I’m proud of is the fight, spirit and togetherness we showed. I thought we earned the luck to get a point at a really difficult place.”
