Watford response against Reading pleases head coach Slavisa Jokanovic

16 March 2015

Slavisa Jokanovic was pleased with his Watford side's performance after they moved into second in the Sky Bet Championship following a 4-1 victory over Reading.

But the head coach admitted his side had to iron out some problems during the game.

The Hornets appeared to be in full control after goals from Almen Abdi, Matej Vydra and Fernando Forestieri had put them 3-0 up early in the second half.

But after Jem Karacan had pulled one back, the Hornets - as they had done in other parts of the game - saw their tempo drop and also lost some control in midfield.

That was regained in the closing stages though, as Fernando Forestieri netted a fourth to put his side second in the table on goals scored.

Jokanovic said: "I must be happy with our performance today and what is more important, we won three more points and played very good football for many minutes of the game.

"We had some problems during the game but my team fixed this problem, so I must be happy with what we did today.

"We had some problems in the first half too. We made two goals and we had many great chances to score more. We tried fixing this problem at half-time and we started the second half well.

"After they scored the goal, it sometimes happens where my team starts playing a little bit more slower and we start being a little bit relaxed.

"We must use the bench to help them fix this problem. We fixed this problem and we scored one goal more. But as I say, I must be happy with what my team did today."
