LUFC Watford View: Dyche - Bitter pill to swallow
Watford manager Sean Dyche was left frustrated after seeing Leeds United claim a point with a penalty with the last kick of the game and admitted it was a bitter pill to swallow.
In a game of little quality, Watford looked to be heading for all three points thanks to a Michael Kightly first half goal.
Dyche thought his side played well and thoroughly deserved to take all three points.
Speaking on the Watford official website, Dyche said, "I thought we were very good today - all around the pitch.
"The way we went about our work was very good and we totally deserved to take the three points. We didn`t with that twist of fate at the end."
Watford had an excellent opportunity to wrap the game up with two minutes remaining when they were awarded a penalty after Patrick Kisnorbo fouled Marvin Sordell inside the area.
Alex McCarthy, playing in his last game of his loan spell from Reading, gave Leeds a glimmer of hope when he turned Sordell`s spot kick onto the post.
The miss was to prove costly, when at the other end, Nyron Nosworthy caught Mika Vayrynen inside the Watford penalty area to earn Leeds a penalty deep into stoppage time.
Leeds inform midfielder Robert Snodgrass stepped up to beat Scott Loach from the spot with the last kick of the game and Dyche could not hide his disappointment. "It is a bitter pill to take for all of us.
"We have had our pockets pinched for the extra two points we should have got today," continued Dyche.
Dyche stormed onto the pitch to remonstrate with referee Eddie Ilderton about the award of the Leeds penalty at the final whistle.
