Charlie Taylor believes everyone – from back to front - played their part in Burnley’s win at Watford.

The Clarets were up against it in the first half and grateful they headed back down the tunnel at Vicarage Road with the scoreline still goalless, Nick Pope pulling off a couple of crucial saves.  

Sean Dyche then rallied the troops and saw a transformation in the second period, Chris Wood putting the visitors in front eight minutes into the second half.

Ashley Barnes’ penalty and James Tarkowski’s late goal then completed a 3-0 victory in the final 10 minutes.

The end result was a first away win of the season and a long-awaited clean sheet on the road, the last one having come at the same venue in the goalless draw between the sides in January.

“First half we dug in, Popey pulled off some great saves and kept the scoreline even, then the second half the lads up top have put the chances away and could have had more maybe,” said Taylor.

“We’re just delighted with the three points. The clean sheet is great for Popey and the defenders as well.

“We’ve made Turf a bit of a fortress, our next aim was to pick up points on the road and we’ve done that.”

Taylor admitted that Clarets fans who made the trip south saw two halves at different ends of the spectrum from their side.

Having been on the ropes, Dyche’s men grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck to make it back-to-back victories as Watford folded and slipped to the bottom of the pile in the Premier League.

“First half, we weren’t anywhere near our best,” said Taylor.

“You could say we were lucky to get in at 0-0. Second half was just a completely different performance.

“We just felt as though we were waiting for something to happen instead of going out and trying to grab it and make something happen.

“That changed. We got right on the front foot from the first whistle in the second half and it was just two completely different performances.”

Taylor, whose return to the side has coincided with the Clarets’ upturn in fortunes either side of the international break, says Burnley are all too aware of the issues the Hornets are facing at the moment after their struggles in the first half of last season.

Quique Sanchez Flores’ side should have been out in front at the break but unravelled once the visitors got the all-important first goal thanks to Wood’s sixth in his last six games.

“They’re down the bottom and it’s never easy,” Taylor said.

“It mounts up and it adds extra pressure but they’ve got top quality players and before the game we were talking about how tough it is and what a good squad they’ve got and I’m sure they’ll improve as the season goes on.

“That was us this time last year. When you’re really struggling and confidence is low things seem to go against you.

­“It’s not easy but I’m sure they’ll put things right.”
