Following Watford's eventful 3-3 draw away at Bournemouth last night, head coach Javi Gracia admitted he had never seen a half of football like the first, which saw four goals in six frantic minutes of football.

Both sides found the target three times in the first half, with captain Troy Deeney and Ken Sema on the scoresheet for the Hornets.

Despite being unimpressed with his side's defending, Gracia was very pleased with the work of his goalscorers.

He said: "I have never seen a first half like that. Six goals, in one half, I think the supporters will be happy. I am not happy because we need to defend better.

"Everybody knows Troy is important for us and today he is scoring goals, Ken as well. Both are very important for us and I am pleased with their goals."

The second half saw both sides make defending their priority and as a result, the game was somewhat lacking in action by contrast.

However, Gracia believes his side still could have taken all three points.

He added: "All the games we have played away we have created good chances.

"In the second half, we tried to defend better, but Bournemouth in that moment created good chances.

"In the last minute maybe, if there was other decisions we’d have the chance to win. But we have one point and now we will keep going."
