Watford scored the winner in the first half and Pat feels that the defeat might have been a reaction to the cup win over Blackburn the previous Tuesday.
"We had a little bit of a setback at the weekend against Watford. It wasn't a great performance and it was a bit 'after the Lord Mayor's show' really I suppose.
"I don't think we're going to win the under-19 section now, but I think, overall, we've done quite well in it considering we've got an under-18 side.
"We changed the side, I wanted to make a few more changes really to give them a breather. It wasn't to be because we got one or two injuries on Friday."
Team: Jalal, Kelly, Henry, O'Donoghue, McKie, Marney, Hughes (Bowditch), Thomas (Barnett), Noto (Wettner), Sutton, Barnard.
Our Under-19 side lost by a single goal to Watford at Spurs Lodge on Saturday as coach Pat Holland attempted to juggle his troops ahead of the Youth Cup semi-final against Everton.
