Cape Town - Watford manager Javi Gracia was
thrilled to see his side claim a 3-1 victory at Burnley on Sunday to bring an
end to their poor run of results on the road.
Heading into the clash at Turf Moor, the
Hornets had gone 12 games without a win away from home. However, Andre Gray,
Troy Deeney, and Will Hughes scored to lead the visitors to victory.
"I don't like to look back at
statistics from last season, I prefer to enjoy this moment," he told a
press conference. "I'm very happy for the players. Today we scored three,
so we have done better than we did last season.
"For me, it is always important to get
a win but today is the first away win. Last season we had the chance to get
points and score goals, but we didn't do it."
He told Sky Sports: "It was a
challenge for us to improve on previous away games. We got a good result today,
we played well, and we continued with the same play as we have before.
"I'm happy with the first half too but
the second-half, we were given a step forward and controlled the game until the
last moments. We created many chances, had many shots on target - more than Burnley
- and I'm happy for that.
"We know to play here (at Turf Moor)
is tough. They are a very demanding team and you know you have to defend really
well. Today, we have conceded one goal from a corner because it is difficult to
defend (James) Tarkowski but I think we have done a really good job."
Watford's next Premier League clash will be
at home against Crystal Palace on August 26.
