ANDY LONERGAN 6 Kept his concentration despite being a bystander for most of the game. Made one decent stop in the second half from Forestieri.
KEVIN MCNAUGHTON 8 Injury, what injury? Hardly put a foot wrong on the right side of defence against a tricky customer in Pudil.
*MATT MILLS 8 Won everything in the air and kept things simple in possession. The beard is clearly working wonder for the big centre-half.
TIM REAM 7 Defended sensibly in the latter stages when Watford tried to turn the screw. Such an important outlet in possession too.
ALEX BAPTISTE 8 Just when his manager is discussing bringing in competition, Baptiste produced possibly his most impressive outing at left-back.
MEDO KAMARA 7 Had to stay disciplined to maintain the team shape that won the day in the end. Made some important blocks in the first half.
JAY SPEARING 7 Outstanding defensively – putting his body on the line on several occasions – but a handful of errant passes cost him a mark.
CHUNG-YONG LEE 7 No signs of fatigue despite international duty. The Korean winger picked up where he left off to work hard in the wide positions.
DARREN PRATLEY 7 A surprise inclusion, perhaps, but when you need that physical presence in the middle, Pratley is definitely the man.
NEIL DANNS 8 Struck such a great balance between his defensive work and asking questions of Watford going forward. Continues to look busy.
JERMAINE BECKFORD7 Snapped up the one chance that fell his way but otherwise it was another afternoon of hard running and making himself a nuisance.
Subs: Moritz 75 (for Pratley) – Showed a couple of nice touches 6
Ngog 85 (for Beckford) – Worked hard to see the game out 6
