Craig Dawson has admitted that Danny Welbeck's bicycle kick goal in Watford's win over Norwich City was better than his own against Leicester.

Half of Watford's four goals since the league restarted have been acrobatic overhead efforts, with Dawson equalising in such fashion against the Foxes before Welbeck repeated the trick to score the winner against the Canaries on Tuesday evening.

The defender insisted that Welbeck's was a better goal, but was pleased to get another one of his own to contribute to the much-needed victory at Vicarage Road.

"His is better to be honest," said Dawson. "But it doesn't matter how they go in at the minute as long as they go in and it's a great win for us.

"As soon as he went for it, I knew [it would go in], I just had that feeling and it's great for him as well because he's worked ever so hard to get fit and to be where he is now, so hopefully he can continue with a little scoring run.

"It was obviously disappointing to go behind so early and to get back in the game, it was obviously a big moment for us. It was an important goal and I'm glad to get another goal."

Dawson is pleased to have put together a run of games in the starting 11 after spending much of the rest of the season on the bench behind Craig Cathcart and Christian Kabasele.

The former West Brom Man admitted he was not happy sitting on the bench every week, but knows now there is a great chance to impress with games coming thick and fast.

"Any player who isn't playing isn't a happy player and it's been difficult," he said.

"Obviously with not playing and the team haven't been as good as we'd have liked to be all season, so we're working hard. It's important that everybody keeps focused and with the turnaround in between games, everybody's ready for the next game and hopefully we can take advantage of the positivity at the moment.

"It's great to be playing and we'll hopefully pick up some points in the next few games and we know it's going to be a team effort, a squad effort, and everybody's ready on the bench to come on and affect the game, which is great."

After moving four points clear of the relegation zone, it would be easy for Watford to think they have made life difficult for those behind them in the bottom three.

However, Dawson insists the Hornets are still only focusing on themselves.

"We've got a great squad, we haven't performed as well as we wanted to this season," he said.

"It's a great set of lads and we're working hard and hopefully we can turn things around and keep working hard on the training pitch and get the points on the board.

"We're just fully focused on ourselves and we know the games that are coming up are great opportunities for ourselves. It's all about recovery now and getting ourselves ready for the next game."
