Troy Deeney’s fifth-minute opener was cancelled out by Jamie Vardy with just under 15 minutes to play, and while City looked set for a draw at Vicarage Road, Andre Gray bagged an injury-time winner for the hosts.

Morgan, who made his first appearance since 19 January, felt the Foxes were unfortunate to return to Leicester empty handed after a positive showing in the second period.

Morgan told LCFC TV: “We’re disappointed, we worked hard all game. I thought we were good at times, we kept a lot of the ball and tried to work through their defensive block and at times we found it difficult.

“There is a lot of positives in there and once we got that equaliser, I thought we were going to go on and get that second, or at the very least come away with the draw. To concede at the end of the game is very tough to take but we have to look at the positives.”


Morgan Points To Positives

Captain Wes Morgan feels there was plenty to be pleased with despite falling to a late defeat at Watford in the Premier League.

Morgan felt City adapted well to new manager Brendan Rodgers’ stratagem, which saw the captain play alongside Jonny Evans and Harry Maguire in a back three, while Ricardo Pereira and Ben Chilwell operated as wing-backs.

“There were some good sequences of play,” continued Morgan. “We got into some good threatening positions down the sides for Ricardo [Pereira] and Chilly (Ben Chilwell).

“On another day we will make more of them chances. The new gaffer has just come in and still working on things, we will get better.

“It’s his first week in charge and he’s got a lot of ideas he wants to introduce to us. We’re taking it all on board, it’s all positive stuff, the boys are buying into his philosophy and we will get better.”

We know we can pick up more points and that’s what we need to do, go out there and start winning games and making the most of our dominant play and our chances.

With nine games remaining, Morgan now believes the challenge for his side will be to show they are capable of capitalising on their dominance, having had 61 per cent of possession against Watford.

He added: “We’ve had a bit of a bad spell and we want to put that behind us now, we’ve got some good games coming up and we know what we’re capable of.

“We know we can pick up more points and that’s what we need to do, go out there and start winning games and making the most of our dominant play and our chances.”
