The Hornets got off to a perfect start to the game with Ben Wilmot prodding the ball home from Ken Sema’s cross inside three minutes, but they failed to ever really build on that start and allowed QPR to come back into the contest and eventually secure what was a well earned point for them.
A win would have seen Watford rise to the top of the Championship table, but at the moment so far this season they have struggled to assert their dominance in matches.
Five of their six league wins so far have been by a single goal which means the opposition have always been in with a chance of taking something from the game.
20 quiz questions about Watford’s current squad that Hornets fans should be getting correct. Can you score full marks?
Ivic has managed to get the Hornets into a strong position in the table, but he feels he needs to find more from the squad at his disposal if they are to really challenge for the top two automatic promotion places.

Same words every week. Strongest squad in the league. Maybe time to look at the tactics and changes made at half time? Maybe time to look away from the players….

This is how I want my Gaffer to react.
Some players today did not perform and as a fan that Hurts, as a gaffer it must be frustrating.
