Nottingham Forest skipper Danny Collins says the Reds should aim high at Watford
DANNY Collins is expecting a fluid, open game against a Watford side packed with Italian flair.
The Nottingham Forest skipper is expecting an end-to-end contest at Vicarage Road – although he hopes the Reds can keep a third consecutive clean sheet.
"They have a few Italian players, a lot of lads who like to get the ball down and play," he said.
"We will go there with a good idea of their approach, of how they play – and we can hopefully play our own game as well.

"We have matched up quite well against teams who play football.
"Hopefully it will be similar to the Wolves game, which was quite open – although we won't want to be giving away too many chances.
"We will go there and try to keep things steady, while hitting them on the break."
Collins says Forest were happy to return from Brighton with a draw – but will be looking for more today.
"It was a good point, looking back. They had the best of the first half, but we had some good chances in the second half," he said.
"The longer the game went on, the more we got into it. But, in the end, we were probably happy with a point.
"It is the sign of a good side when you pick up a point when you are not at your best.
"If you go back to the week before, beating Burnley, we would probably have taken a point at Brighton after that.
"Now we move on to Watford, who are a good side and another different challenge."
