STALEMATE: Watford FC remain winless after 0-0 draw to Sheffield United

Watford FC are still waiting for their first Premier League win after they were held to a goalless draw by Sheffield United at Vicarage Road this afternoon (October 5).

The draw against the Blades means Watford are without a win in the first eight games of the season, their longest winless run since 2006-7.

Andre Gray should have put the Golden Boys in front early on but lifted Roberto Pereyra’s cross over the bar after ten minutes.

Gray, Danny Welbeck and Craig Dawson all spurned chances to hand Watford a much-needed win while United keeper Dean Henderson was named man of the match.

Watford are the only Premier League club without a win and remain at the bottom of table on three points.

Speaking to the BBC after the game, Flores said everyone at the club is working hard to turn their season around.

He said: “We tried to go for the win but Sheffield United are a very confident and physical side. We didn’t concede in a long time, so that’s a good thing.

“The players responded really well and we need to support them. They were a little nervous with decision-making, everything is so fast, but I think we had opportunities that we can work on.

“A clean sheet is a good thing and we talked last week about not conceding. We’re working hard together to get more confidence for the future.

“We have the break now with a lot of nationalities in our team, so we will come back and continue to work hard.”

Watford are next in action when they take on Tottenham on October 19.
