AFC Bournemouth encouraged despite Watford Capital One Cup defeat
AFC Bournemouth are remaining positive despite being knocked out of the Capital One Cup by Watford.
An Elliott Ward own goal and a second half strike from Cristian Battocchio handed the Hornets a place in the third round, where they will face Norwich City.
Cherries midfielder Richard Hughes believes his side should be encouraged by their performance - particularly after two successive heavy defeats away from home.
"The margin between success and failure is often so small and that was definitely the case against Watford and in the other two away games" said Hughes.

"There's no feeling sorry for ourselves. We wanted a reaction and a performance after the result on Saturday and we got that."
Eddie Howe's side dominated large parts of last night's game, with Watford goalkeeper Jonathan Bond pulling off a string of good saves.
Bournemouth's best effort came from Brett Pitman, when his free-kick was tipped onto the woodwork.
The Cherries host Bristol City on Saturday.
