Rodgers: We did it the hard way

Published Add your comment

Watford boss Brendan Rodgers admitted his side had to win the hard way after coming from behind to claim a 3-2 victory at bottom-club Charlton.

Tresor Kandol's brace cancelled out Don Cowie's opener to give Charlton the half-time lead but a moment of individual brilliance from Grzegorz Rasiak and a goal from Tamas Priskin gave Watford all three points.

Rodgers said: "We did it the hard way. We started really well and the momentum was with us for the first 20 minutes. Then we made a mistake and were on the ropes a little bit then after that."

He added: "We got a really good goal and then conceded two goals, which we are disappointed with. The first goal, [Kandol] finished it well and the second goal we conceded as a collective.

"But I always felt we had the quality to come back well in the second half and won the game with two world-class finishes.

"Grzegorz is wonderful. He's a great professional. When he is asked to come in, he comes into the team with a positive attitude. I've worked with world-class players and seen how they finish and that was a world-class finish that got us back into the game."
