Watford midfielder Hughes hails 2-goal Deulofeu

Watford midfielder Will Hughes hailed the quality of Gerard Deulofeu after his double in victory over Huddersfield.

Javi Gracia's side were made to work hard for all three points at the John Smith's Stadium.

"We weren't at our best, we weren't at the level we should be, but it helps when we've got players like Deulofeu on the team who can do a bit of magic and finish the game for us," Hughes told Press Association Sport.

"We've got to be better than that, but Huddersfield gave it everything. They're relegated and have nothing to lose, but we've got to improve going forward."
