Boothroyd defends Watford's direct style

Watford manager Adrian Boothroyd has defended his side`s direct style of play - and insists a number of the country`s top teams also employ a similar approach.

Boothroyd`s men have been likened to Saturday`s opponents Bolton - as well as the Wimbledon and Crystal Palace teams of the 1980s - but he said: 'People won't accept it, but Manchester United have been one of the most direct teams in the country during recent seasons.

'The current champions, Chelsea, do not play through the thirds of the pitch. The ball will be played from one third to another, where Didier Drogba will knock someone out of the way and score.

'What irritates me and some managers and other people is that they think the game should be played on the floor all the time.

'If the Brazil teams of recent years had always played like that, how would Roberto Carlos have been able to hit a 70-yard diagonal ball to Cafu?

'Our goalkeeper Ben Foster is such a good kicker of the ball that he can land it on a sixpence. If I have an asset like that in my squad, it would be ludicrous not to make use of it.'
