Pearson says Watford cannot relax after victory at Bournemouth

Watford boss Nigel Pearson says they mustn't relax after their 3-0 win at Bournemouth.

Goals from Abdoulaye Doucoure, Troy Deeney and substitute Roberto Pereyra secured a comfortable victory for Watford at the Vitality Stadium to lift them above their opponents into 17th place.

The win also means the Hornets have collected 13 points from six Premier League matches since Pearson's appointment last month.

"There are so many games left, it would be foolish to think because we've got out of the bottom three that the job's done," Pearson said. "It's not a season-changing result but it was an important one.

"We talked very early on about how we'd have to have a substantial run at some point. We're on a good run, but we probably need to win another six games, maybe more.

"We've put ourselves in a better position than we were in a few weeks ago and that's all I'm prepared to say at the moment."
