Bristol City goal hero Paul Anderson says Watford "disrespected us"
Bristol City goal hero Paul Anderson accused high-flying Watford of disrespecting the Championship's bottom club.
Hornets boss Gianfranco Zola surprised everyone by omitting six of the players who thrashed Nottingham Forest 3-0 away on Saturday, choosing to leave many of his top stars on the bench at Ashton Gate last night.
The Italian's selection policy back-fired badly as goals from Greg Cunningham and Anderson either side of half time secured a deserved 2-0 victory for the Robins.
Anderson emerged from the home dressing room afterwards and declared: "That serves Watford right for disrespecting us.

"Changing six players suggested they were taking us lightly and we deservedly won."
He added: "They had a lot of the ball and we knew that would be the case. We had a game-plan and, fortunately, it worked for us.
"It is always difficult when you play teams like Watford, who have the ball all the time, because you feel as though you are on the back foot all the time.
"Even though they never really created anything, we constantly felt we had to get into the game. But goals win games and, fortunately, we scored two and gave ourselves a cushion."
City's second win in four days lifted them off the foot of the table and Anderson said: "We've had two good results on the bounce now and we're buzzing. Hopefully, we can progress from here.
"We're all in it together, we're working hard and things seem to be going our way now."
