WAT­FORD man­ager Gian­franco Zola has told his side to get a grip at the back.

The Hor­nets have given away a num­ber of cheap goals this sea­son and Zola is wary of the same hap­pen­ing in the cup against Bournemouth.

He said: “We are go­ing to work hard to im­prove the way we de­fend, es­pe­cially in tran­si­tion, be­cause that is where we are most vul­ner­a­ble.”

The Cher­ries, like the Hor­nets, are ex­pected to make a num­ber of changes for the cup.

Bournemouth mid­fielder Richard Hughes said: “Come Satur­day or Tues­day, ev­ery­one wants to be in­volved in a game they have been work­ing hard pre­par­ing for.

“You want to be out there and play your part.”
