Watford boss Walter Mazzarri was pleased with the result but not the performance in his team's 1-0 victory over Middlesbrough on Sunday afternoon.

Watford boss Walter Mazzarri has admitted that while his team could have performed better against Middlesbrough, he was "very satisfied" that the Hornets collected all the points from the Riverside Stadium.

Jose Holebas scored the only goal of the match early in the second period as Watford moved into ninth position in the Premier League table with a 1-0 success over struggling Middlesbrough.

"I'm very satisfied because we won an away game in such a difficult stadium. I'm mainly [satisfied] with the character of the team but I'm less satisfied on the overall performance," Mazzarri told BBC Sport. "I'm happy. It's going very well. We could've had one or two points more at this stage. We've been playing all the games well with the exception of Burnley away."

Next up for Watford is a trip to struggling Swansea City next weekend.
