Possession errors and decision making

It was an evening where both sides committed a string of unforced errors.

In the first period, they were coming so regularly and it didn't really slow down in the second period, however, in that second half the driving rain played a big part.

Luckily for Albion, Watford were as guilty as them which ultimately led to a draw.

For me, it isn't a lack of quality but decision making. A few times it has to go long or be clipped in the channels to get them turned, rather than try and play out of trouble.

That said on the flip side, the Baggies pressed high and forced errors from Watford, which was a real positive.

Better from Wallace

He has had flack and has needed a moment for a few weeks now to get him going.
