Watford boss Nigel Pearson: No time to relax

Watford boss Nigel Pearson says it's no time to relax after their 3-0 win at Bournemouth.

The result sees the Hornets move out of the dropzone.

But Pearson warns: " There are so many games left, I think it would be foolish to think that just because we've got out of the bottom three, that the job's done.

"It's not at all, there's an awful long way to go, but I think what it does, it quantifies the work that the players have put in over the last few games and the Christmas and New Year period have been very difficult and very busy.

"If you want to use fixture congestion as an excuse, we've got plenty of injuries, but our players have just got on with it and I've been very pleased with that because they've taken responsibility for their own performances and that's important."
