Jokanovic fumes as Hornets suffer Huddersfield setback

Watford head coach Slavisa Jokanovic, speaking after his side’s 3-1 defeat to Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium, said the performance was simply not good enough.

The Hornets had won four of their previous five league matches, but struggled to get anything going as Nahki Wells, James Vaughn and Joel Lynch earned the home side a comfortable victory.

Substitute Odion Ighalo, who cancelled out Wells’ opener to make it 1-1, was perhaps the only bright spot during a miserable afternoon for Jokanovic’s men.

“We did not deserve anything from the game,” Jokanovic told Sky Sports.

“We did not achieve the high levels that we needed to.

“We only played for about 10 minutes and you have to play for the whole game.

“We were walking and we did not fight and we made too many mistakes. We gave Huddersfield too many chances and quite simply they worked harder than we did.

“They had more confidence and desire and we need to do better than this.”

Jokanovic also said that the club intend to bring in reinforcements during this month’s transfer window.
