Watford once again struggled to create away from home in a goalless bore draw at Nottingham Forest.

Just one shot on target was created during the whole game, while the Hornets were fortunate to finish the game with ten men.

Here's how we rated their individual performances.

Ben Foster - 6

He'll perhaps wish he'd have been a bit busier on a freezing cold night, but had very little to do. Claimed some crosses well, about all he needed to do.

Jeremy Ngakia - 6.5

Defensively solid and showed signs of attacking intent, although that waned as the game went on.

Christian Kabasele - 7

Prevented Forest from creating anything of note. Solid showing once again.

Craig Cathcart - 7

Worryingly went off injured, but had been good up to that point.

Kiko Femenia - 6

Defensively fine, but didn't attack with the vigour we have come to expect over the last few weeks.

Nathaniel Chalobah - 3

From the sublime to the ridiculous. Was excellent against Preston, but ought to have seen red for some stupidly rash challenges in the second half. Also gave the ball away a lot.

James Garner - 5.5

Set piece delivery was all over the place and offered barely any control or composure in the centre.

Domingos Quina - 5

Was booked for an awful tackle after half-time and created very little throughout the match. Was substituted after letting his frustration get the better of him.

Ismaila Sarr - 6

Another who needs to offer more in attack. Seems afraid to try and take on defenders at times, when he absolutely has the ability.

Troy Deeney - 5.5

Dropped deep too often and was often guilty of slowing the game down. Not entirely his fault, as service to him was lacking, but far from his best showing.

Joao Pedro - 5

Had the only shot on target in the game, but needs to offer better movement off the ball.


Stipe Perica - 5

Failed to have the requisite effect and really had no impact on the match.

Ben Wilmot - N/A

Arrived too late to change things.
