Xisco Munoz felt there was nothing controversial about Watford's win over Sheffield Wednesday, despite their winning goal initially being disallowed.

Ismaila Sarr's cross from the right was turned into his own net by Tom Lees, but the referee's assistant raised his flag to signal an offside. 

However, Chris Kavanagh overruled the decision and the goal was allowed to stand.

Asked for his opinion on the controversy, Munoz said: "I think it's a goal. It's nothing special. 100 per cent, it's an own goal and it's finished."

Other than the finish, there was little to divide the two sides in what was ultimately an unattractive game.

However, the win widened the gap between Watford in second and Swansea and Brentford in third and fourth, while also narrowing the gap between themselves and Norwich in top spot, who were pegged back by Preston.

Munoz praised his side's mentality for grinding out the victory.

"It was not our good performance but I can say it was excellent, the mentality of our players," he said. "I think they understand perfect our game. They were very strong mentally because today we had a very good opponent.

"I think they played very well, but the most important thing is all of our players gave more for the team. I think this is perfect for for us. And I think we continued with the balance, we got another clean sheet and I think it's amazing.

"The team is mature and they have big mentality, a strong mentality, and I think he's perfect for our team."
