The Hornets had Lewis McGugan to thank after his excellent second-half free-kick cancelled out Andy Reid's opener to share the spoils at Vicarage Road.

Zola's men remain unbeaten after their opening four Championship games and the 47-year-old believes that the result against Forest was a positive one.

"I think it was a good game for the spectators and the TV," he told Sky Sports.

"It was very much one side to the other, one side to the other. I think the result was good although they had great chances.

"I think we had good chances as well in the second half. It was a close one to be honest but we did very well. I was really impressed by the performance."

Forest could have gone into the break with a two-goal lead after Henri Lansbury's strike cannoned back off the post, but Zola says he was unfazed by the visitors' pressure.

"I wasn't worried in a sense because I knew because the best of my team was yet to come and I knew we were going to do more in the second half," he said.

"What I didn't expect in the second half was that there would be so many chances that we allowed them to have. That was the thing that made me think a little bit.

"I think we have a good, strong squad. We are improving as a team and we have a few issues to sort out but I can't complain, the results have been good so far and we look forward to keeping improving too."

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
