Beppe Sannino admits Watford were not at their best in the goalless draw at Yeovil Town but he believes some of his players were suffering from fatigue in the second half at Huish Park.

An end to end contest lacked quality in the final third with neither side able to create the decisive chance to seal all three points.

The Hornets have played four games in the past 11 days and Sannino suggested the busy schedule goes some way to explaining why the visitors' faded slightly in the second period. 

"I think the game was split into two halves," said Sannino. "In the first half we were the better side and in the second half we could have done better.

"It’s not an excuse but maybe the fatigue set in a bit because we have been playing a lot of matches."

Sannino continued: "My players are playing a lot of matches in a short space of time and in my opinion this was the main factor but I know today there were a lot of Watford supporters who came and they perhaps deserved a little bit more from us.

"My players though are only human and I think it is understandable that on a heavy pitch they felt a bit tired in the second half."

Watford have now registered three clean sheets in a row in the Championship but their performance was lacking in punch and creativity.

When asked if he was concerned by the team's lack of clear-cut opportunities, Sannino said:

"My main concern is not about creating chances.

"Because we are playing a lot of games in a short space of time my main concern is giving the players the right time to recover and picking the best eleven for the game.

"It’s true what you say about us lacking today in our final pass and I am aware about that but it is not my primary concern at the moment."

He added: "We always play to win the game because we want to repay the supporters for what they do for us."

Watford were perhaps unfortunate not to be awarded a penalty in injury time as Davide Faraoni ran at Jamie McAllister and the ball appeared to pop up on to the Yeovil captain's hand.

Sannino said: "What the lads said to me in the dressing room is that it was a handball but I want to look forward, I don't want to blame the referee."

The Hornets move up to 11th in the Championship, eight points behind the play-offs, and are 20 points ahead of Yeovil who remain rooted to the bottom of the league.

Sannino insists he was not surprised by the Glovers' gutsy display and believes even if his team were unable to seal a win, it was important to take something from the match.

"When you don’t win, you have not to lose," he said.

"In this Championship there is not an easy game even if there are teams in different positions in the table.

"It’s true there are teams who are fighting relegation and teams who are wanting something more.

"You have to show that on the pitch though and there is no easy formula."

We all like Beppe, he's a character and his post match interviews are honest and mostly accurate. And clean sheets are most welcome. And a united squad is a valuable thing. Let's just hope he can make us play nice football like we used to. Just saying. (Hurry back Fernando).

Won't get on Beppe's back but it's a tough old league and all teams play a lot of games at this point in the season, we also changed 6 players so not really buying the tiredness card. Will just have to put it down to a bad day at the office. We didn't lose though so onwards and upwards!!

If blame is going to be put on fatigue, why didn't he switch things around and bring on fresh legs sooner? Pudil was blowing at least 15 minutes before he went off. Ranegie had his hands on his hips in tiredness before the end of the first half. If the players are tired and are not playing well, bring them off and switch things up. Why Park didn't come on for Ranegie is beyond me. The guy was ineffective and not fit. Very poor performance which wasn't helped by our formation today. We were exposed time and time again through width and are very lucky to come away with a point albeit the penalty we should have had in the second half.

that sums up the game well.
TIRED give me a break, as said half the team did not play at the weekend.
That is what subs are for,Ranegie was blowing after 20 mins.
How did YEOVIL get Miller on a loan and we end up with these logs, he ran
over Ekstrand every time and when the crosses came in to our box,PANIC.

The bare fact was that was against the bottom team in the league and they
played with ten times more spirit than us, their goalie could have stayed
in the changing room at half time for all the work required.
No sorry those excuses do not hold.
As stated before, sort out the rubbish (plenty of that) and bring in players
that are proven in thie league, look at Burnley if not sure!

Fatigue, what a joker!!

He made SIX changes, and also did not use the fresh legs of Park (at all) and Murray (until it was too late).

He is coming out with poor excuses all of the time now!

We never looked like scoring in the second half against a bottom of the table team just waiting to be beaten! Very poor indeed.

Trivia question: Which is the only team in the football league we have failed to score a single goal against? I think you know the answer!

The midget park would have done a **** site better at jumping off the ground. Ranegie was not winning much ball in the air, had very little pace and was not fit. If it isn't working, switch it and try something else.

Citing fatigue is not only baffling but also something that can be countered with timely player switches.

The heavy pitch, Yeovil not playing over the weekend and us having to do the work of 11 for 40 minutes on Saturday against a determined Boro' are probably all factors to take into account but still dissapointing to not come away with all three points against the rock bottom side.

And we haven't won away from home in nearly 4 and half months so that aspect is a continuation of the Zola regime.

Biggest problem for me is complete lack of creativity in midfield. Abdi we all know is a MASSIVE miss but was hoping Merkel could step up and help fill that void.

Maybe McGugan (God that sounds desperate) will add the spark that's missing when he's back to fitness....

that sums up the game well.

That is what subs are for,Ranegie was blowing after 20 mins.
How did YEOVIL get Miller on a loan and we end up with these logs, he ran
over Ekstrand every time and when the crosses came in to our box,PANIC.

The bare fact was that was against the bottom team in the league and they
played with ten times more spirit than us, their goalie could have stayed
in the changing room at half time for all the work required.
No sorry those excuses do not hold.
As stated before, sort out the rubbish (plenty of that) and bring in players
that are proven in thie league, look at Burnley if not sure!
Make your mind up Endean, you said in a previous post it wouldn't be easy against Yeovil, it will be route one football in blustery conditions and we will be lucky to get a draw.
We got the draw!

How did YEOVIL get Miller on a loan and we end up with these logs, he ran
over Ekstrand every time and when the crosses came in to our box,PANIC.

The bare fact was that was against the bottom team in the league and they
played with ten times more spirit than us, their goalie could have stayed
in the changing room at half time for all the work required.
No sorry those excuses do not hold.
As stated before, sort out the rubbish (plenty of that) and bring in players
that are proven in thie league, look at Burnley if not sure!
Make your mind up Endean, you said in a previous post it wouldn't be easy against Yeovil, it will be route one football in blustery conditions and we will be lucky to get a draw.
We got the draw!
I did expect a proper performance from the team.
Yeovil showed heart and desire as opposed to our display

Sannino was never going to take the 6'5" Renegie off for the midget Park playing against a team of giants, four of which towered over the former
The midget park would have done a **** site better at jumping off the ground. Ranegie was not winning much ball in the air, had very little pace and was not fit. If it isn't working, switch it and try something else.
If we were playing for the draw , we were very lucky to get it.
Your opinion means nothing ,how do you know how Park would play?
If someone isn't playing well and is not fit, switch it. If it doesn't work you are no worse off. Leaving things as they were with Yeovil all over us was a poor decision.

This is the most telling thing he has said since he has been here.

When asked if he was concerned by the team's lack of clear-cut opportunities, Sannino said:

"My main concern is not about creating chances".

Sannino has irrevocably confirmed he is of the 'Italian school' we will get success by winning one-nil's and not conceding. It has to be admitted it is successful, it is a complete 'about turn' from Zola which while a lot of fun and thrills for a period had serious flaws as a plan!

I think the judgement on the Yeovil game is a tad too harsh, four games in eleven days is very hard to maintain quality and energy, added to that Yeovil is a non-league setup who will be in the championship for a season. Plus the appalling playing pitch with divets everywhere the excuse does stand up, additionally the 20 year old player Lawrence from man utd who has gone from Carlisle to Yeovil was their outstanding player, why is he not at Watford Nani?

We absolutely must get back Vydra back for the next season partnering Deeny with Fess in the hole for the counter attack part of the plan.

We never looked like scoring in the second half against a bottom of the table team just waiting to be beaten! Very poor indeed.

Trivia question: Which is the only team in the football league we have failed to score a single goal against? I think you know the answer!
it was a joke. I travelled to Yeovil twice and was better entertained by the postponed game..
Tired? then don't play unfit and uninterested players.. Renegie and others.
Is Park another Acuna? never to get a real chance?
Murray was absolute pants when he come on, Anya was well off boil.
first time in my life I was glad the stonewall penalty wasn't given, itd of been a travesty had we won.
Positives? Almunia... Toszer and Angella. The fact we have lost 2/13 and are hard to breakdown..but boy our midfield is anonymous and our attack so impotent its untrue.
I don't blame Beppe nor Zola, all the folly's we are getting in are Nani Goats doing and I think he should go.
we were dire and it was a long journey home in the fog.
armchair fans sat in the tool shed, hit the thumbs down quickly..i need a laugh.

I agree with your points Roger. I think we'll miss out on the play off's and the main reason is that Nani didn't bring in an adequate replacement for Vydra. Fessi, for all his ability is not a "front two" player, he's too much of a maverick. He's more suited to playing as a "free spirit" behind the strikers. Won't happen though as I think Saninno will stick with 5-3-2 now.

Totally agree with the comments, fatigue is not to blame for the style of football we are now having to put up with. Zola's style of play just needed a bit of tinkering. What we are seeing now is utter rubbish and yes the gates will fall. This team will not reach the play-off positions there's no belief within the squad that they can make it. There's no get up and have a go attitude is there. Unfortunately the team is being set up not to lose a game whereas they should be going out to win every game. Up next Bolton, another team struggling what will our approach be for this one. I think we all know the answer to that one. Roll on the end of the season and I didn't think I would be saying this at the start of the season.
