1st March 2003-New Division One, Watford 1 Nottingham Forest 1

BSAD imageReally, the first half performance was as good as anything that we’ve produced under Ray Lewington. We were apparently oblivious to whatever Forest had planned for us, forcing the game to submit to the force of our will instead. The visitors’ passing game was thoroughly wrecked by relentless pressing in every part of the pitch, a huge effort that seemed to spread from Allan Nielsen and Heidar Helguson to every player in the side – it would be very hard to imagine forty-five minutes that contrasted more strongly with the lazy, flabby football of last year.
