Ben Foster has urged his Watford teammates to be more clinical in front of goal after their 0-0 draw away at Bristol City on Wednesday night.

The goalkeeper claimed the Hornets had dropped two points after failing to convert possession into chances in what was an otherwise dominant display.

While he was pleased not to have conceded any goals, the former England international was disappointed to see his opposite number do the same and said the club's outfield players needed to show more quality.

“That was a game of very few chances. We just need to take our chances when we get them,” Foster told the club website.

Watford Observer:

“I would say it’s two points dropped. Some of the positions we got into tonight we just needed a little bit more quality and poise and calmness in the head.

“We could have really made a lot more of it, but we didn’t tonight, and it’s disappointing, but it is at least another clean sheet.”

Despite the disappointment, Foster agreed with head coach Vladimir Ivic that there were positives to take from the performance, particularly in the first half, where Watford took 66% of the possession.

However, he believes that ultimately, the result was what they deserved.

“In the first half we definitely had more control of the game [than at QPR], in the second half not so much as it got a bit scrappy,” said the 37-year-old.

“It was very cold and very slippy, and you could see the lads losing their footing all over the shop because it cut up a bit and got a bit bobbly.

“We should be doing a lot better but we’re just not at the minute, so if you don’t put the ball in the back of the net you don’t deserve to win.”

Watford Observer:

The clean sheet was Foster's fifth of the season, with the Hornets once again showing that they are a tough team to break down.

However, the 37-year-old would have much rather conceded and seen his side pick up three points than go home with the draw.

“It’s always nice to get a clean sheet but I’d trade it all for three points,” he said.

“I don’t care if we win 5-4, getting the win is all I care about. It’s nice though because eight games is too long to wait.

“We definitely don’t need that pressure in the last few minutes of the game though. Having 20 men standing on your toes is not a nice feeling, but fair play to the lads because they stood strong.

“It’s a long old league and it’s already shown that it’s so unpredictable, you can’t tell which games you’re going to win so we’ve just got to focus on ourselves, hopefully start scoring goals and picking three points up.”
