Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted that hopefully his side have learnt a lesson from tonight's draw as 'we're not that good'.
The Swans have picked up just 1 point in the last 6 available now after losing 1-0 at Scunthorpe United on Saturday. Rodgers even said in the post match press conference that it was probably the most disappointed he's been since he came here to drop 2 vital points at home.
The Swansea boss thought his side had good control of the first half, but they didn't do the 'ugly bits' well enough, and poor defending and lack of chances created has cost them two points this evening. Former target, Danny Graham netted 12 minutes from the end to share the points.
Afterwards, Rodgers was asked how he felt about the result:
'Disappointed. Probably the most disappointed I've been since I've been here.'
'We had good control of the game, we dominated and then defensively, we were very poor for the goal. It was a game we should see out.'
'We had good control particularly in the first half, but we didn't do our job right and conceded a goal, which is very surprising considering how well we defend as a team.'
'For the majority of the game we played really well. You have to give respect to Watford, they're a good side, they've gone away from home and beaten teams like QPR so they've got good players and a good manager.'
Swansea City enjoyed good control and dominance in the first half and Rodgers said he told his players they had '2 points' won at the break, but they needed to get tight in the box - which they didn't do. He added:
'I made a point at half time - the two points are made, the game is certainly not over at 1-0 and we need to make sure we get tight around the box, so we done the opposite of that. We didn't get tight around the box and the guy has made a great little cross and scored.'
'Definitely two points dropped, but to give credit to Watford they stuck at it when they could have been out of the game. '
'It's hopefully a good lesson for us with 10 games to go, because we're not that good. We've taken the plaudits this season and in particular for the Leeds game, but we're not that good.'
