Andre Gray thinks Watford need to forget about last season and focus their minds on turning their fortunes around.

The former Burnley man scored the Hornets' only goal so far this season when he netted against West Ham on Saturday afternoon.

However, he knows there is much more work to be done to get the club back to the standard they set before.

“Last season is dead and buried. As soon as the season finishes you stop and then come back and start over again," he told the club website.

“We can’t concede goals every game and expect to win. That’s not just on the defence, it’s the whole team. We conceded from a set-piece and that’s the whole team defending. We can’t pick out individuals.

“We all know what we’ve got to do, and it starts tomorrow on the training pitch.

“We can’t sit down and sulk about it, we need to get on with it and be better. We’re not making excuses, that’s not what we’re going to do."

Despite the defeat, Gray did notice an improvement from Watford during the game against the Irons, but admitted that points would be better than performances.

“I would rather not create so many chances and just get the one and win the game,” he said.

“We need to win games, we said that last week. We’re creating so many chances but it’s the points that matter.

“I thought there was only one team to go on and win but we didn’t.

“It doesn’t help conceding the penalty in the first minute, but we got back in the game and were the better team up until they scored."
