Watford Player Ratings

Tom Ince grabbed a memorable stoppage-time goal to edge Huddersfield Town closer to safety on Saturday afternoon. Here we bring you our player ratings from the game, with the gentle reminder that we award a 5 out of 10 for an average performance, enjoy.



Jonas Lossl: 6/10

The Danish 'keeper didn't have too much to do in this game, but when he was called upon he was solid and dependable.

Florent Hadergjonaj: 6/10

Toiled well in difficult offensive situations and was an ever-willing runner for the home side, his defensive efforts were much appreciated as well.

Zanka: 8/10

Troy Deeney only had one shot in anger during the match and that was because he couldn't move without Zanka on his heels, in fact the Dane ended up with a slither of Deeney's shirt in his hand at one point! His assist for Tom Ince would not have been out of place for an attacker either.

Christopher Schindler: 6/10

It was an unusually quiet performance from the German with his centre-half partner taking all the headlines, but he did very little wrong and was calm and collected on the ball.

Terence Kongolo: 7/10

We said last week that he's becoming a favourite here at TerrierBlog and nothing's changed this week. After receiving a knock to his ankle with twenty minutes remaining he powered through to the end and continued to nullify Richarlison.

Jonathan Hogg: 6/10

The midfield enforcer had his customary near miss with a fizzing shot towards the end of the game, but was strong in the tackle and always in the right place before that.

Aaron Mooy: 6/10

Showed glimpses of his former sparkling self but still isn't quite back to his formerly high standards. Long-ball distribution in the first-half was a real highlight however.

Rajiv Van La Parra: 6/10

Looked to add that extra something to Town's attack and performed his ball-carrying duties extremely well, if he could have improved his final ball though, the score might have been better for Huddersfield.

Collin Quaner: 5/10

The lanky German looked to be struggling with fitness before he was withdrawn for Tom Ince and although he took several tumbles in the first-half, he didn't too much wrong.

Alex Pritchard: 6/10

It's incredibly hard for the diminutive forward to shine in this current Town team, but he's always ready to receive the ball and make things happen.

Steve Mounie: 6/10

Another player that worked hard for the team. Had a chance to score following Tom Ince's blocked shot, but perhaps his lack of opportunities got to him as he dithered on the ball and let the chance go begging.

Substitutes

Tom Ince: 7/10

From the minute he stepped onto the pitch, his determination to win the game was clear for all to see. He seemed to have an extra spring in his step and had the confidence to get into the box late on and score the all-important goal.

Laurent Depoitre: 6/10

Proved a real handful when he was introduced and the Watford defenders were clearly unnerved by his presence, especially when he held of Prodl in the build-up to the Town goal.

Phillip Billing: 6/10

He's another favourite here at TerrierBlog and when he came on his direct approach encouraged Town to venture forward more. His long-throws applied pressure to the Watford defence and led to the positional mix-up just before the winning goal.

The Gaffer: 7/10

He recognised that his teams short-passing game wasn't working and instructed his players to adopt a more direct style that reaped the rewards.
