Christian Kabasele blamed Watford's shortcomings against Bournemouth on a lack of confidence, as they failed to score in an uninspiring game at Vicarage Road.

The draw saw the Hornets collect a second clean sheet in three games, but also match their longest winless streak at the start of a league campaign.

This season has seen Watford go ten games without finding a victory while only finding the net five times, but Kabasele thinks a boost in mentality will see the goals start to come. 

"[It's] maybe confidence," he said.

"The confidence to be more clinical to make the right pass in the right moment in the final third. We need to keep working, it's just a question of improving this lack of confidence and try to score as much as possible."

Despite there being no goals in the game, the Belgian defender said he thought it was an enjoyable match and that another point is nothing to complain about.

He thinks that if Watford keep working and building as they have been, a win will come soon.

"Personally I enjoyed watching the game, I think it was a good football game," he said.

"Both teams had good chances to win the game, especially in the first half.

"We need to take this point - we are in the position where any point is good to take - so we need to carry on and I'm sure the victory is close."

Kabasele is one of a number of players who look to have benefitted from the arrival of head coach Quique Sanchez Flores. 

He believes the change to three central defenders has had a positive impact on the Hornets and how difficult they are to break down as a team.

"We changed the formation obviously," he said of Sanchez Flores' impact.

"We have an extra man at the back and with a back four maybe we conceded too much space in our defence, but now with the extra men we can cover more spaces and it's just not the defenders also the goalkeeper.

"As a unit we close better the space in our own half and the opponent finds it difficult to break us down."
