Newcastle goalscorer Saint-Maximin 'really disappointed' after Watford draw

Newcastle goalscorer Allan Saint-Maximin was left frustrated after their 1-1 draw with Watford.

João Pedro’s late header brought Watford back on level terms in a competitive afternoon in the North East, after Allan Saint-Maximin opened the scoring in the second half.

Saint-Maximin reflected: “I think you can see my face.

“I am really disappointed.

“We tried to do everything to win this game.

“To concede a goal with only three minutes left, it’s really difficult.”

Victory would have hauled Newcastle out of the bottom three.

Saint-Maximin said: “When you are in this position you need a bit of luck.

“We need to wait for more luck to help the team win this game.

“They did not have a lot of opportunities to score but they did. It’s really hard because we know if we keep drawing we will not survive but we have to keep going.

“We have a really good mentality.

“When they score in the 88th minute, and you have only a few minutes left, it is the same story.

“It becomes really difficult to score.”
