Gianfranco Zola calls for his Watford side to be more clinical after losing to Blackpool 1-0 in the Championship this afternoon.

Gianfranco Zola wants his Watford side to be more ruthless after being defeated by Blackpool in this afternoon's Championship clash at Bloomfield Road.

Troy Deeney had a great chance to score for Watford in the first half but saw his penalty saved by Matt Gilks, who denied the visitors on a number of occasions.

Watford dominated the game but were undone by a late goal from Thomas Ince and Zola admitted afterwards that his side must be more clinical in the future.

"We must be more ruthless. We have shown we can be this season; to not score today, though, is amazing. The goalkeeper has made some brilliant saves and we have also not taken our moments when they occurred," he told the club's official website.

"I cannot express my feelings any stronger than to say I am very, very disappointed with the result - as I am sure are all the players and all of our supporters who have come a long way to cheer us on.

"Today is a lesson for us. We accept that a good goal has been scored against us, but we know we should have won this match before half time."

Watford host Charlton Athletic in the Championship on September 14.
