Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores has bemoaned his side's bad luck after their 1-0 Premier League defeat to Swansea on Monday night, claiming that the Hornets deserved something from the match. 

A first half Ashley Williams goal proved the difference between the sides in a low-quality game, condemning the Hertfordshire side to their fourth straight league defeat, and fifth game without a win. 

Flores' side have fallen from being European contenders at the start of that run down into the bottom half of the table, but now sit just eight points above the relegation zone and look in danger of being sucked down into a battle for survival. 

Speaking to ​Sky Sports, he said: "I think football has been cruel with us in the last few matches. We didn't deserve to lose today, but that's football, everything can happen, so you need to accept the result and improve for the next match. I'm disappointed with the result and first half we lost balance in a few areas, we suffered a bit without the ball and they had control.

"I was happy with the performance in the second half, we had high pressure, we created chances and the team came back with a performance. In the second half it was completely different."

He continued: "We are working the same way but we are playing against teams with very good players. It's not easy for Watford to win four consecutive matches, but we don't like to lose four consecutive matches. The target is not far away, it's close, and we just have to think about repeating the performance in the second half."
