Leeds boss Kevin Blackwell’s decision to start the match with just one striker – Rob Hulse – back-fired spectacularly, as Watford were quicker, stronger and sharper for a large proportion of the match.

Lewis admitted that, instead of trying to retain possession, Leeds had fallen into the trap of trying to beat Watford at their own, all-action game.

Lewis: ‘We ended up playing Watford’s game: we played far too direct a style.

‘We didn’t push onto them well, we let a lot of loose balls go and their midfielders picked up quite a bit. It’s too soon to reflect right now.

‘Automatic promotion is now the plan. If I make it back again, I’ll give it another go, and hopefully end up on the right side.’
