FRUSTRATED Blues boss Jim Magilton felt his side had enough chances to win two games after being held to a goalless draw by bottom side Watford.

Richard Wright was Town's hero with a couple of vital saves but it was a former Town academy keeper that denied the Blues.

Scott Loach, who was with Town eight years ago, made some good stops and left Magilton rueing his side's poor finishing.

Magilton said: “I didn't like us in the first half. We didn't have a sense of purpose and waited for things to happen. We didn't take the risk of winning and we needed half-time more than they did.

“We had a few choice words and right from the kick off Pablo Counago and Jon Stead combined and we got them on the back foot.

“We had enough chances to win two games but the keeper has done well and we have not had a real killer instinct.

“We have not been able to get our noses in front and relax and play there is always a sense of edginess.

“Watford were dangerous on the counter attack and could have, maybe should have scored.”

Town lost Gio dos Santos to a groin strain, David Wright to a hamstring and Tommy Miller to a dead leg adding to an injured list that includes Luciano Civelli who could be out until Christmas with knee ligament damage and Jon Walters for probably the rest of the season.
