Watford-Scunthorpe: Reaction

Watford-Scunthorpe: Reaction

It was a happy Malky Mackay who met the press after today's three-nil victory over Nigel Adkins Scunthorpe United this afternoon.

'To end up with a performance like that I was very, very pleased.'

Speaking to Sky Sports, big Malky had this to say with regards to the contribution of Heidar Helguson:

'I know that he's going to cause problems for the centre-half and the partnership with him and Danny Graham, certainly today caused people problems.

'I am delighted that Danny Graham got his goal because he's been working so hard every day in training and he worked so hard in games.'


Unsurprisingly, opposing manager and former Iron Physio Nigel Adkins had this to say following his sides fifth consecutive league and cup defeat:

'Obviously the goals they gave away I am very disappointed with,'

'We've come away from home to try and nullify that as best as possible to give ourselves an opportunity to go forward and score, and we did create chances, but if we can't defend a simple cross into the middle of the six-yard box then we're not going to win games of football, it's as simple as that.'


A very gracious Adkins then went on to praise former Iron loanee, Henri Lansbury, and the Hornet's midfield:

'We knew that Watford were a good side, very lively and industrious in the centre of the park and having Henri Lansbury with us last year, we knew that.

'I thought the three of them in their (midfield) were superb and the front two did very well, and the front five I thought they were excellent.'
