Swansea manager Roberto Martinez conceded his side were second best as they slipped to a 2-0 defeat against Watford.

The home side went ahead in the 23rd minute when Tommy Smith's left wing cross found Tamas Priskin, who finished coolly from six yards and Smith then turned scorer as his sweetly struck shot from 20 yards sealed the win and ended Martinez`s side's 16-game unbeaten league run.

Martinez said: "Everything about Watford was perfect. They were very organised, they worked hard with and without the ball and were clinical."

He added: "It was a disappointing performance but we did not have what was needed to win the game.

"Watford had huge desire and tempo in terms of trying to get three points. We are at that stage of the season where the table affects performances and Watford reacted really well to the conditions and deserved all three points."
