Hear Gianfranco Zola's thoughts following Watford's win at Barnsley
Gianfranco Zola felt a number of factors led to Watford’s improvement in fortunes at Barnsley on Saturday than the last time they visited Oakwell.
The Hornets produced a disappointing display when they visited the Tykes’ home in March and suffered a 1-0 defeat but there was no repeat performance at the weekend as Zola’s men secured their biggest away win since the 6-1 victory at Leeds United almost a year ago.
“Today they tried to press us as well but we didn’t allow them to press us like they did last year,” the Hornets head coach explained afterwards. “We prepared for that and we made it more difficult because we used the pitch better than we did last year and also the personality in the middle of the park was better than it was last year.”
