Watford manager Brendan Rodgers was bitterly disappointed that once again his side had suffered from a late penalty decision at Cardiff.

The Hornets dropped points at the weekend when Sheffield Wednesday scored a last-minute penalty and were again left to rue a spot-kick as Cardiff won 2-1 in added time.

Rodgers said: "I think it was a harsh result, particularly losing in such fashion. The linesman said it wasn't a penalty which is why my players asked the referee to consult him. Ross Jenkins claims he never handled the ball."

He added: "The performance level was very good, we have been excellent over the last couple of months but now we have to move on.

"To get so close yet lose was very disappointing as we still need points for safety but I will focus on the positives as you would have thought it was two top-six sides playing out there."
