Crystal Palace manager Dougie Freedman lauded his side after they secured their first league victory of 2012.
The Eagles had failed to win their previous six npower Championship matches but put in an assured performance to dispatch Watford 4-0 at Selhurst Park.
"I am not relieved at all [about getting that first win of the year]," the Palace boss said. "We have been performing fantastically well over the last three or four games.
"The performances have merited wins so it is pleasing to get what you deserve and we certainly got that.
"Over the last three or four games I felt our performances were very, very good but we didn't quite get what we deserved."
