  • Leicester boss Martin Allen:
    "It's good to get a win, for the players and supporters, but it's only three points.

    "I thought the referee was distinctly average, I couldn't get my head round some of his decisions.

    "But we've now got a good, big squad of players, and every one of them knows they have to earn their place."

  • Watford manager Adie Boothroyd

    "This could be our best result of the season, we got the boot up the backside our performance deserved.

    "We earned a reputation in our first two games. We perhaps turned up today thinking everyone was afraid of us.

    "But leicester weren't and you have to make sure your score in your dominant periods, and make sure you don't give away goals."
