141008 Slavisa Jokanovic 3102Watford Head Coach Slavisa Jokanovic said he saw two sides to his team following this last night’s 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest at Vicarage Road. The first-hour pleased the Serbian, while he feels there’s room for improvement after watching the final 30 minutes. “We played a very good game for 60 minutes and made many brilliant actions” he said. “We had many chances then the last half-hour we lost our order tactically and we tried to play more with our hearts, rather than our heads. “I am not happy with the last half-hour but am happy with the first-hour.” The Hornets took the lead via Odion Ighalo’s third of the season after 29 minutes but were pegged back two minutes later when Michail Antonio equalised. Matej Vydra converted a spot-kick seven minutes after the re-start but again Antonio struck to ensure the points were shared. Jokanovic believes the visitors could have easily been playing with 10 or nine men after referee Dean Whitestone adjudged neither incident, involving Reds defenders Michael Mancienne and Kelvin Wilson in the first and second half, to be worthy of a red card. The Head Coach felt the Hornets were punished for their defensive mistakes and the strikes were cheap goals to concede, but said he knows his team is dangerous in front of goal. “We play an attacking game, we make some mistakes today but if we have more control then in the future I expect we will make less mistakes,” he admitted.
