Watford head coach Vladimir Ivic has not seen a replay of his side's controversial equaliser against Stoke City, but thinks his team have other things to worry about.

While the Hornets managed to end their three game winless run with a late Ismaila Sarr strike, there was plenty Ivic didn't like about his team's performance, including their slow start.

On the night Watford benefited from a goal that looked to have come from a foul by Joao Pedro, forcing Potters' keeper Angus Gunn to carry the ball over the line. However Ivic was more interested in talking about other issues.

"From the first moment I couldn't see exactly what had happened, but after enough time I heard that maybe we were very lucky in the decision for this goal," said the head coach.

"I still haven't seen the goals from the game. But, you know, to speak now, we cannot speak just about this goal because I have to speak generally about the game.

Watford Observer:

"I believe we didn't start good in this game. It's not the first time that we start the beginning of the game passive, not active and we started to play after the goal of our opponent. This is something we need to fix."

Ivic has now been in charge of Watford for ten Championship matches, where they currently sit fourth in the table. The Serbian said after this time he has a clear idea of what he needs to do to improve his side.

"After these 10 games we understand where we have a problem," he said.

"If you see how we concede most of the goals we know where we what we need to improve. If you speak about our defence. If you speak about our attack, we said a lot of times that we can be better and I believe that we will be better."
