Iron: Attractive Watford will be fresh

Iron: Attractive Watford will be fresh

Scunthorpe boss Nigel Adkins has heaped praise on Braveheart Watford boss Malky Mackay and his rock solid right hand man, Sean Dyche, ahead of "a tough, tough game" at Glanford Park on Saturday.

Iron Man Adkins told the 'fficial Scunnie site that the Hornets management duo "are good guys" that have "done an excellent job down there" - and here, at VitalWatford we`re certainly not gonna argue with the Scunthorpe gaffer!

Adkins, who also got a gold star for his 'enthusiasm` by Malky on the Hornets own homepage, admitted that he thought the Watford coaching staff had done well given the constraints of the club coffers at Vicarage Road, adding "The club have had to make cutbacks financially but they still put out a fine team that plays attractive football."

'Fine team`? 'Attractive football` huh? That`s not the kind of praise we`re used to. Whatever happened to that much loved (?!?) 'long ball, bully boy tag` we were soooo fond of?

The Scunnie gaffer also reserved special words for 'Hooray Henri` Lansbury (how much pre-match attention does a returning former loanee actually need?) insisting that the young Arsenal playmaker "excited everyone with his displays" whilst on loan at Glanford Park last season.
Let`s hope then that Lansbury - along with fit again Clever Tom - brings his A-game on the long trek north to Scunthorpe and puts an end to the Hornets damn awful away record after a long rest without any action - a fact not lost on the Adkins, who stated "they haven`t played for 10 days so there should be freshness about them...".

Well, you know what they say... a change is as good as a rest and it would be a change if we won away for once!
