Watford manager Brendan Rodgers has hit back at his critics who could not understand his team selection for Tuesday's 2-1 defeat at Plymouth Argyle. Rodgers opted to make five changes from the Hornets side that beat Crystal Palace at the weekend but his decision back-fired. He insisted: "I'll always put out a team I can feel can win every game. "I was looking at the games that we've had recently - a lot of big games and a lot of physically tough games - and looking at the games that we have for the future. I may not get many opportunities now to change it. "A lot of these players have played in a lot of the games this season and we were still strong enough with what we had to win the game. "I don't regret making the changes because I trust the players and trust in their work - it was just one of those nights where we never got going."
