Crystal Palace boss Hodgson warns against complacency facing Watford

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has warned against complacency ahead of facing Watford.

Palace sit in 12th place, nine points clear of Watford who have escaped the dreaded bottom three on goal difference alone. But Hodgson is all too aware that a run of results can have a huge impact in an extremely congested Premier League table.

He said: "It's nice to be in the middle area rather than the bottom area, that goes without saying. There's a lot of football still to be played.

"Two good results do help enormously, they move you up the table very quickly – but two bad results can move you back in the other direction. Everyone here is aware of that – we've experienced both sides of the coin, and no words are going change a thing in that respect. What changes it is going into the field of play and playing well enough to get the wins that you need and hopefully deserve."
