Don Cowie praised City supporters on Tuesday night.

Don Cowie praised City supporters on Tuesday night following the Bluebirds' 2-1 defeat of Watford.

Speaking to press post match, the former Hornets midfielder said: “Obviously we are delighted; we left it late but the most important thing was that we got the three points. As soon as they go down to nine men, people expected us to go and win. We had to be patient, but eventually we got the goal and we are still right up there which is the main thing. Our fans supported us to the end and were superb.


“Watford have got a system which is probably different to most of the league - they play 3-5-2 and it was hard to break them down. All credit to them, they got the goal and tried to sit on that. The manager said at half time to be patient and we can win this game and that is exactly what happened."

 In reference to breaking a sixty-five year record of six consecutive home wins out of six, Don added:"It is not something that we have spoken about collectively, but what we have said is that we want to make it tough when teams come here and that they know that they are in for a hard game. Hopefully, come Saturday, we can make it seven.


"We need the fans right behind us and being where we are in the league, we can go from strength to strength. Hopefully, seeing us winning games will get them right behind us. You could see the excitement when we got the winner in the last minute and what it meant to them. Hopefully the good times can continue."


"It will be tough, they are scoring plenty of goals. They have got someone in Charlie Austin who is on fire right now and scoring every week. We will look at the game plan and see how we can address that, and make sure he doesn't get any chances. We then take care of things at the other end."And looking ahead to Saturday's home game with Burnley, Cowie added:
