Deeney hails Watford resurgence under manager Pearson

Watford captain Troy Deeney has hailed their resurgence under manager Nigel Pearson.

Watford pulled clear of the relegation zone for the first time this season with a 3-0 victory at Bournemouth.

"We hit rock bottom and we've managed to get back involved," said captain Deeney, scorer of the second with Abdoulaye Doucoure and Roberto Pereyra also on target.

"The gaffer and all the boys have to take a lot of credit. He's just stripped it back to basics. I don't want to be too simplistic and not give him enough credit. He's put a demand on the players and we've accepted that demand.

"You can see that from the way we're working and running for each other."
