Watford head coach Vladimir Ivic said he was "satisfied" with his side's 3-1 win over Blackburn Rovers, but insisted there are still improvements to be made.

Joao Pedro and Tom Cleverley scored in the first-half for the Hornets before an own goal sealed the win in the second-half, with Ben Foster also saving a penalty.

Ivic said Rovers gave his side a lot of cause for concern and that Watford need to be more resourceful in possession.

"We can be satisfied with the three points, we can be satisfied with the chances we created today but we played against a really good team," he said. "This team, they made our job very difficult today, they worked hard, they created a lot of chances, we had a very good keeper today who saved three or four very good shots and a penalty and he's given us confidence in a crucial moment of the game.

"We can be satisfied with three points, we can be satisfied with some of the players who haven't played a lot coming back and starting to play, but we know where we are, we know we have to improve a lot of things from our game and we know that we need to improve our game when we have the ball because this is something we didn't do in the correct way that we prepared."

Despite the need for improvement, Ivic said his team have learnt to win, having collected their fourth victory in six Championship matches, taking them to third in the table.

Nevertheless, the head coach is not getting carried away, with plenty of games still remaining this season.

"In these games now it's very important to win the game, we've learnt to win," he said.

"When you're relegated and you've come from the Premier League into the Championship, you have a totally different goal now. We have a new squad than the previous year, we know a lot of players aren't here and we've started to learn how to win the game and this is very important.

"It's a good start from six games, but I said it before, the Championship is long and we still have a lot of games in front of us.

"Now we have 16, 17 players in this moment who can play. We'll wait for some of the players who have some kind of injury to come back to help us to be ready and like today, with [Etienne] Capoue. He's the guy who started to play, we know he's not 100 per cent ready, but he's the guy with his quality who can give us a lot and he needs to play game-by-game to get the confidence, to get the physical condition and to get to the level he can be to play 90 minutes."
