Xisco Munoz is plotting improvement for Watford after they were pegged back in a dull 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough.

The Hornets took the lead in the first half with a deflected Ismaila Sarr goal but Yannick Bolasie's header cancelled out the lead and forced them to settle for a point.

The head coach felt his side could have offered more in attack and said that, although he is disappointed, he is now considering how Watford can continue to build for promotion.

"We know it is difficult to take points in the Championship and believe me, right now I am only thinking about what we can work on to get better for the next game," said Munoz. "I think our team has very good numbers, and we need to keep going, play with the same ambition in the next games.

"We will sometimes have difficult moments and when you stay in a good moment everyone tries to give their best and today we didn't have a lot of chances, but I think we had the more clear chances to score.

"I remember what I always tell you when we win, I enjoy it for 20 minutes and then I am working for the next game. Today I'm disappointed and after I will be working for the next game."

The game itself was far from entertaining and Munoz felt Watford's lack of creativity going forward was mainly due to the team they were up against.

"They are a very good team," he said. "They are strong, they have power, they have spirit, like us, and sometimes it happens. The most important is to keep going, always we try to the win the games, always we try to give a very good performance. But sometimes you have in front of you one team [like this]."
