Watford boss Gianfranco Zola blasts the officials in his side's 1-0 defeat to Millwall at The Den.

Watford boss Gianfranco Zola has launched a scathing attack on the officials in his side's 1-0 defeat to Millwall.

Shaun Batt scored the only goal of the game at The Den, where the Hornets were incensed after Lions' defender Danny Shittu escaped unpunished after handling in the penalty area.

Zola told reporters: "We had two clear penalties not given. One when a header was stopped with a hand, and one on Troy Deeney in the first half.

"And it's not the first time it's happened. It looks like they are enjoying themselves when they do not give us anything.

"It's not the first time and we are missing points that would have made a big difference. It's game after game."

Watford are now six points behind second-placed Hull City in the Championship with just three games to play this season.
