The 2-0 win over Norwich on Saturday was just the second time both have scored in the same match.

Speaking to the Express & Star, Watkins said: "Looking back at the start of the season I think me and Ingsy would have thought we'd have a lot more goals.

"It is definitely a partnership which can work. I think we have been unfortunate. I don't want to make any excuses but there have been inconsistent performances.

"But that is the game. In these last few matches we can hopefully push on and get a lot more goals."

On the victory, Watkins added: "It was a win we needed. We were on a bad run so it was nice to get three points. Now we need to keep pushing and aim for the top-10 finish.

"We know we haven't been great. It was a positive taking a point against Leicester the week before. Saturday was a good day."
