Watford: Fans appreciate Craig Dawson’s turnaround in form

Many Watford fans have poured in messages of appreciation for Craig Dawson after he was part of a defence that kept back-to-back clean sheets in two recent home games.

Can Quique Sanchez Flores turn things around at Watford?

Yes

Yes

The Watford Twitter account described the defender as a ‘rock‘, referencing his clearances stats from both games against Spurs and Bournemouth. Allegedly, he made 11 clearances vs Spurs – the second highest in the squad – and eight against Bournemouth – five more than anyone else in the team.

According to a report from 90min, the former West Brom defender was only worthy of a six from the reporter, whereas other centre backs Christian Kabasele and Craig Cathcart were worthy of a pair of sevens.

WhoScored’s algorithm was slightly more favourable to the 29-year-old, who gave the defender a 7.04 – the same as Craig Cathcart and 0.1 less than Christian Kabasele with 7.14.

Many Watford fans responded to the tweet, expressing their delight for the defender after he was heavily criticised at the beginning of his Watford career when the side were shipping a lot more goals under Javi Gracia (as shown on Birmingham Live).
