  3. 'We needed to be ruthless'

    Watford 1-2 Burnley

    Watford

    Watford midfielder Will Hughes speaking to Sky Sports:

    "Massive frustration, similar to last week. Long ball up top, couldn’t deal with it, something we worked on in training all week.

    "They’re a good team in the air with lots of big lads and we didn’t deal with it.

    "They put a lot of balls and we dealt with it in the first half, one lapse of concentration cost us

    "We wanted to push on for the second, and it could’ve killed the game off, but we could have been more ruthless."

  4. A 'blood and guts' performance

    Watford 1-2 Burnley

    Watford

    Sean Dyche

    Burnley manager Sean Dyche speaking to Sky Sports:

    On Vokes' goal from the bench: "Well it is something you can't define. I didn’t think it would come that quickly of course, but a good finish. The players had a good mentality, they got us through.

    "We're not going to slick it around every week, we played well at West Brom and West Ham, but a different way to win, blood and guts and working hard."

    On Jack Cork: "He’s a humble lad, fantastic professional. there's a humble edge to what we do. They’re willing to find a way to work and be diligent."

    On European ambitions: "There’s a lot of games to go a lot of football to be played but the lads have put themselves in a good position to be thinking that.

    "The reward for the lads is going into the final few games of the season, knowing the first marker has been achieved, now they all enjoy their football.

    "We know we didn't play well, but found a way. Think we had a scratch of luck, doing the ugly stuff, all that is important."

  5. 'We needed to kill the game off'

    Watford 1-2 Burnley

    Watford

    Watford manager Javi Gracia speaking to Sky Sports:

    "I think we dominated for most of the game, had more possession, more shots on target, 10 corners to one, but it wasn't enough, we should have killed the game and we didn't.

    "They didn't surprise us, we knew their style of play, we lost in a similar way in the last game with two set pieces, OK we are not happy today we'll try to do better next time.

    "I thought we were ready to defend this and improve in those situations, today we conceded two goals from two free kicks, we need to improve.

    "They score two goals in three minutes, we tried to work on this we are conceding the last two games many goals this way, and we are losing points."

  6. 'We've got a winning mentality '

    Watford 1-2 Burnley

    Burnley

    Jack Cork

    Burnley midfielder Jack Cork:

    On the performance: "There were times they were on top of us but we never got worried. We’ve been in that position a couple times this season but the lads keep working, keep fighting. We believe we’re always going to get something from the game."

    On Sam Vokes's goal: "Amazing goal. He’s a great player and a great sub from the gaffer. He is unlucky not to be in the team but showed his quality today."

    On his goal: "I still didn’t know until you just told me. The keeper saved it and Ashley Barnes tried one of this overhead kicks. I wasn’t sure, but a few of the lads jumped on me."

    On Burnley's form: "We’ve got that momentum and winning mentality. We had a tough patch in the middle of the season, but played through that, four wins on the bounce, we just need to keep pushing until the end of the season."

    On European ambitions: "We would like to have an eye on that, it's a shame to waste the good position we are in, it would be good end to a great season. A lot of the lads haven’t played in Europe so it will be a great experience, great for the fans especially."

  8. One eye on the history books

    Watford v Burnley (15:00 BST)

    John Barnes

    It's a case of one eye on the history books for both of these teams.

    Burnley occupying the giddy heights of 7th in the Premier League are still well positioned for a place in the Europa League - as long as they can keep Leicester at arms length and Southampton don't win the FA Cup - and a best league finish since 1973-74, when they came sixth in the old First Division.

    Let's not forget about the hosts Watford. They remain on course for their best top flight finish since 1986-87 when a squad managed by Graham Taylor and inspired by Liverpool bound John Barnes finished ninth.

  10. Team news

    Watford v Burnley (15:00 BST)

    Watford boss Javi Gracia sticks with the same XI that drew 2-2 with Bournemouth last week, which means that Troy Deeney operates as the sole front man again.

    Watford XI: Karnezis, Janmaat, Prodl, Mariappa, Holebas, Capoue, Doucoure, Femenia, Hughes, Pereyra, Deeney.

    .

    There's one change for Burnley as Kevin Long comes into the heart of the Clarets' defence to replace Ben Mee, who suffered a knock in training this week.

    It's a 10th Premier League appearance this term for the Irishman, who has proved an able deputy for Mee or James Tarkowski in the past.

    There is also a place for club captain Tom Heaton on the bench. He's been out of action since September.

    Burnley XI: Pope, Lowton, Tarkowski, Long, Ward, Lennon, Westwood, Cork, Nkoudou, Barnes, Wood

    Men's sprint qualifying

    Meanwhile in the velodrome, the men are battling it out to decide the seedings for the knockout stages of the sprint later this morning.

    Ryan Owens of England has set a Commonwealth Games record, but there are still plenty of riders to come. I expect we'll see a few more records go this morning.
