Boothroyd warns Premiership

23 August 2006 11:26
Watford boss Adrian Boothroyd believes his side's physical approach will cause the Premiership's top sides plenty of problems this season. The Hornets secured their first point since returning to the top-flight with a 1-1 home draw against West Ham on Tuesday, after which Hammers manager Alan Pardew compared them to Wimbledon's FA Cup winning team and Sam Allardyce's Bolton. "I hope that proves to be accurate because those sides didn't do badly, did they?" said Boothroyd, when quizzed about Pardew's comments. "We have a way of playing. We play to our strengths, and if that upsets some people, it doesn't worry me. "If people don't like it, it doesn't matter. It is what we will be doing so they need to get ready. "People talk about our need to adapt to the Premiership, but it is about making the Premiership adapt to us."
