More from Roy Hodgson: "It got tetchy but that's because we were playing against a physical side. I don't know the referee and I thought it was a tough game for him. Luckily it didn't spill over.
On Wilfried Zaha's booking: "He's given attention he doesn't deserve. When the rumours spread that he's a cheat and not the honest player he is, the crowd are led by that.
"I thought he kept his head and kept taking chances. Hopefully I'm not being one-eyed, but I think he would have got the penalty in another game.
On safety in the Premier League: "We thought it might go down to the last game and it might still. We're as many as six points clear so we've got to be satisfied with that. It's up to us to this opportunity."
Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson speaking to BBC Sport: "I'm happy with the point especially with the expression and determination in the second half.
"We came in at half time hanging on and we were rather lucky. Fortunately the players sorted themselves out and second half performance was so much better.
"We were rather unlucky not to get the goal in the end. We're not interested in discussions between players, we want one voice and we want the players to act on it."
Watford boss Javi Gracia to BBC Sport: "I cannot be frustrated as I see the effort of my players. I’m very proud of them. The first half was one of our best first halves this season.
"We created many chances but didn’t score. In the second half, they had more control and created more chances. We tried until the end.
"Stefano Okaka played very well, he put in a big effort and helped us in the first half, not only in trying to score but in defending as well. In the first half we kept a high level of pressure but couldn’t do it the same way in the second half and couldn’t win the match."
On Okaka and Troy Deeney playing up front together: "I am very happy for them as it was their first time playing together. I am very proud of my players."
On whether their 38 points guarantees safety: "I don’t care in this moment if it’s enough or not. The most important thing is to prepare for the next game and try to get three points."
On Roberto Pereyra's injury: "I don’t know how he is but I’m confident he will be available in the next games."Copyright: Getty Images
BBC Sport at Vicarage Road
Just been down in the tunnel at Vicarage Road. It's one of those rare occasions where it appears both teams are reasonably happy with the outcome.
Plenty of smiles amongst players and backroom staff. It's hard to see Palace being sucked into the relegation shake-up again from here while Watford, bar the defining mathematics, are over the line now.
Crystal Palace midfielder James McArthur: "It was a massive point. We weren't good enough in the first half and we upped the pressure. Unfortunately we couldn't get the goal.
"The boss wasn't happy with the performance. He let us know that at half time and we went out and changed that.
"I've not seen the penalty shout back but I'm sure Watford targeted Zaha a little bit, as teams do.
"We want to win every game and we'll go to the next one focused. We need to keep fighting for every single point."
Just to add to the EFL round-up, Sunderland have been relegated after conceding two late goals to lose 2-1 against Burton.
From the Premier League to League One in the blink of an eye...
Watford defender Adrian Mariappa: "It was a tough game. We take the point and the clean sheet. They’ve got a lot of good players and it’s down to us to keep them quiet.
"It's a massive clean sheet for us. Everyone from top to bottom put in a real shift today. We’re fully focused on the rest of the games and it’s a good opportunity to pick up some points."Copyright: Getty Images

Follow all the latest results coming in over on this page, and marvel at the ridiculous score between Bristol City and Hull
Whilst we wait for player and manager reaction from Vicarage Road, we'll get you caught up on all the drama from the EFL.
That result means Crystal Palace creep up to 15th and are six points clear of the drop zone with three games to play.
And Watford look well clear of danger now. They're nine points above the bottom three.
Ex-England captain on BBC Radio 5 live
Both teams had a right go at each other. Watford dominated the first half but they had to score, and they didn't. Palace regrouped and came out strong in the second half and could have gone on to win it. In the end I think both managers will be happy with the point.
No goals, loads of yellow cards. That's all, folks.Copyright: PA
Straight into the wall.
Joel Ward collides into Jose Holebas and concedes a free-kick in a dangerous area.
Watford may have a chance here. It's about 20 yards out...
Aaaaaargh. Andros Townsend.
The ball is lofted over the top of the crowd by Zaha to a waiting Townsend but the Palace forward is flagged offside just as his header creeps past the post.
Any more for any more? Ah yes, Craig Cathcart is next up in the notebook for a tackle on Zaha.
Just the eight bookings...Copyright: Getty Images
It would be easier to work out who hasn't been booked.
This time it's a yellow for Palace's James Tomkins for a foul on Richarlison.
Watford are rushing.
Richarlison picks up a loose ball in the middle of the field and whips the ball forward far too quickly for Andre Gray to do anything with it.
It's all gone very quiet.
Roy Hodgson is scratching his head and checking his watch.
I'm doing the same.
