Watford duo Capoue, Deeney delighted with QPR FA Cup win

Watford's players were delighted with their 1-0 win at QPR on Friday night.

Etienne Capoue's finish on the stroke of half-time, after Tom Cleverley's mis-hit, proved the difference.

Capoue declared: "I enjoyed the goal. It was teamwork. We worked all the way through the game. We are so proud.

"Everyone is on the same page. The players give everything and they showed today what they can give on the pitch."

Watford striker Troy Deeney also said: "We didn't want to be the ones who went out. We got through and did it professionally. We were poor in the first half but had that bit of quality to score.

"We were in control but weren't dominating or doing what we wanted to. We were sloppy at times. The character showed at the end with the way everyone dug in and the celebrations at the end.

"We don't want to lose. We need to keep giving these performances. We are not playing that well but are grinding it out. In older days we might have lost this.

"It is very cliche, but it is the next game and we keep this run rolling."
