Jokanovic insists Watford still in promotion hunt

Watford boss Slavisa Jokanovic insists they're not out of the Championship promotion race.

The Hornets have lost their last four matches to slip from top spot to seventh, but they remain just six points behind leaders Derby.

Former Chelsea midfielder Jokanovic said: "We have not had good results over the last four games and it's our obligation to stop that run.

"This competition is long and tough with many important games in front of us, and we are still very close to the top of the table.

"We lost the last four games, but if we win the next four it's not over. It's a very long job, the target is the same we have had all season, try to be competitive and try to be in with a chance for promotion.

"Fulham are playing very well and have dangerous players. But we have a chance and we will have the right mentality to change our situation."
