Ben Foster proud that Watford ran Manchester City close

WATFORD goalkeeper Ben Foster says the Hornets will take confidence after giving Manchester City a bit of a scare.

The Hornets have lost four of their last five but Foster, who pulled off a number of good stops to keep City at bay for long periods in the 2-1 defeat, said: ‘I am proud of the team.

‘When you play against City it is always very easy to go a couple of goals down, and then heads can drop and the floodgates can open.

‘But we kept going, kept plugging away, we got the goal and then towards the end they are clinging on for it.

‘There are not many teams that can say they ran Man City that close this season.

‘That is tribute to our lads and we will take that into the next few games, now knowing we can compete with these sorts of teams at this level.

‘Everton on Monday is a tough one but we will take a lot of confidence with us.’
