David Meyler's header and Robbie Brady's 25-yard free-kick meant Troy Deeney's late reply was a mere consolation but Bruce thought his team's created enough to merit more reward.

Bruce said: "Watford in the second half were better but the first half I can't really remember my goalkeeper having a touch of the ball and we've had two chances in the first three minutes which we've missed.

"But we knew Gianfranco's (Zola) team would be different in the second half,

they're on a great run of form but I think we were worthy winners. We could have been and should have been out of sight."

On his upwardly mobile side, now fourth, Bruce added: "We've tried to play, we've tried to entertain, I'm delighted that the supporters are enjoying what they're seeing.

"I've got some good players who have adapted very quickly in three or months to a different regime, a different manager, a different formation, a different style if you like but I think they're enjoying it.

"Certainly I've enjoyed working with them because they're a very, very good group and let's hope we can keep continuing."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
