Zola: 'A little too frantic for my liking'

Zola: 'A little too frantic for my liking'


Gianfranco Zola was once again pleased with his side's performance as they dispatched of 10-man Wolves but admitted the result should have been more comprehensive.

After a very tight opening period Watford began to assert themselves on the visitors and could have been ahead when Troy Deeney went one-on-one with Carl Ikeme.

The forward was tripped by Christoph Berra in the process in the eyes of the referee, and, after playing advantage the Scot was dismissed.

Watford got the opener when Mark Yeates found Fernando Forestieri down the left, the Italian scampering away before squaring for Nathaniel Chalobah to finish at the second attempt.

Despite being down to 10, Wolves pushed Watford hard in tense con period but were still fortunate to find an equaliser.

Bakary Sako swung in a deep free-kick which caught Manuel Almunia out and the Spaniard could only push the effort back into his own net.

Watford re-took the lead shortly after, Troy Deeney stooping to nod beyond Ikeme from Forestieri's quick corner kick.

Speaking to Watfordfc.com Zola admitted the margin of victory should have been greater:

'We kept pushing today but perhaps we could have maintained the ball better towards the end - and have scored one or two more goals to make the game certain with the situations we got into on the counter-attack,' said Zola.

The Hornet's Head Coach did have some sympathy with his Wolves counterpart Stale Solbakken:

'I could understand Wolves being disappointed in that situation,' he conceded. 'I think we would have felt the same had we seen an opponent have a chance to shoot.

'At this moment I thought the incident was closed but obviously I do not know about it well enough because the referee thought otherwise.'

Wolves didn't have a single shot the whole match.. Even the goal was a cross.. Wolves are not good.. Hogg should have scored at least 3.. All the lads played well.....

For someone who has never scored for us, I couldn't believe quite how often Hogg dog was finding himself in great goalscoring positions!

If he can't put those chance away, it seems certain he I'll never score!
