Watford boss Claudio Ranieri has expressed frustration, after William Troost-Ekong gave away a penalty deep in stoppage time which saw Brentford claim a 2-1 comeback win.

Watford were leading with only six minutes remaining through Emmanuel Dennis and looking good value for a win which would have lifted them six points clear of the relegation zone.

But Pontus Jansson equalized through a header and in stoppage Troost-Ekong tripped Saman Ghoddos in the area.

Bryan Mbeumo stepped up to take the penalty and condemn Ranieri to a fourth straight defeat.

And reacting to the painful defeat, Ranieri lamented his side’s errors which led to Brentford’s second goal.

“Look, we started well, we scored a goal, but in the second half we went too deep. I don't want this. We had to stay close together.

“We missed a chance to score a second goal and we made mistakes to concede two goals. We lost the first battle but we will do better in the next match.

“The last goal we made three mistakes! We missed a short pass. So then put the ball out of the stadium. Then the penalty - if Willie had just stayed calm.

“I was frustrated, but my mind is on the next match. We are stronger than tonight (Friday night).

“We know we are in a relegation battle. It is important to react immediately. We have to be stronger than tonight and be ready for the battle.”

Following the defeat Watford are now in 17th position in the league table.
