'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Boothroyd Won't Let Leeds Out Of ...

The Watford boss, a former coach at Elland Road, says Leeds can have their moment of glory ... but he won't let them out of his sight. The 2-1 defeat at Leeds on Tuesday will only spur him to have the last laugh.

Boothroyd could only watch in despair shortly after 57 minutes as on-loan Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Foster conceded a penalty and was shown a straight red card. Robbie Blake fired the resulting spot-kick past 41-year-old replacement keeper Alec Chamberlain to draw Leeds level before tensions hit boiling point moments later.

Hornets striker Darius Henderson became embroiled in an unseemly tussle with Sean Gregan and after retaliating to the Leeds defender's challenge he was also sent off.

Leeds made their numerical advantage pay and Blake's clinical 81st-minute finish secured a priceless win.

Meanwhile, Henderson's red card, and Gregan's role in the incident, left a sour taste in Boothroyd's mouth.

The Watford boss: 'As long as the offence is punished for both teams then there's not a problem. Some people call it professionalism or you can call it want, but when you go down as if someone has hit you with a sledgehammer it's a little bit disappointing.

'But I don't complain because it goes on. Henderson's shirt was ripped and when that happens there has to be some sort of wrestling match going on.

'We all get setbacks in life, but it's how you bounce back from them and we need to do that against Brighton on Saturday. We had won six on the spin and now we've got to make sure we win another six, or seven, or eight.

'That's all we can do, and make sure you learn from the experience, but I think you might see us again.'
