Claudio Ranieri insists he is 'satisfied' with his Watford team after they snatched a last-gasp equaliser against relegation rivals Newcastle United, but he wants to see more from his players going ahead.
On the result, Ranieri said: "I am satisfied, but I want more from my players.
"We played our football in the last 30 minutes. We conceded too many chances with set pieces and in the second half they only created the goal and we created more chances.
"I am happy because we drew the match, but I am not happy because we didn’t play as well as we used to do.
"I understand my players, after six defeats in a row maybe you are a little anxious but they have to play."
Mixed feelings after draw
The Hornets were chasing the game for the majority of the second half after a bit of individual brilliance from Allan Saint-Maximin gave Newcastle the lead.
Ranieri said on the reaction to going behind from the players: "I think we showed very good character, after we conceded the goal our reaction was much better. We have to show this from the beginning.
"They understood when we were desperate we tried to combine more. These players can do more.
"I’m very happy because my players had very good combinations, but I want more from my players because I know what they can do. I am happy but it’s half and half."
On the new boys' performances
"They were fantastic, all three," he said.
"They gave us more personality and quality.
"I want to say thank you to the club for signing these good players very early for us.
"I saw some players were tired and had to do something.
"Cucho [Hernandez] is a very good player, a fantastic character and Kiko [Femenia] and [Tom] Cleverley also. I had a very good team at my disposal."
