GOALS are always on the agenda when Matej Vydra laces up his boots for the Golden Boys.

And he's looking to take some hot form from Leeds United last weekend into Saturday's (Nov 17) npower Championship home game against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

"I am always just thinking about scoring to help the team win the game," the Czech Republic international, who featured for his country in midweek, told Hornets Player's Jon Marks for

"For the first goal at Leeds, I just went through and wasn't nervous. I've scored a few this season and that gives me the confidence to know that I'm going to score again."

For the second one, Vydra said he saw the keeper coming out so "just lifted it over him". 

"That was my favourite of the two. It's not often you get the chance to lift the ball over a keeper and into the next like that."

More shooting practice - albeit over a shorter time period - came along for the seven-goal hitman when he came as sub for the Czechs against Slovakia.

"I played okay and had a few shots," explained the 20-year-old.

"I got an assist for the third goal. I am really happy to be involved with the national team and hope I can stay in the squad for a long time."

Asked to comment on whether he'd seen many better one-on-one finishers than Vydra, Watford Head Coach Gianfranco Zola put some perspective to the youngster's progress.

"Not many - because he is quite cool in front of goal," noted the Italian.

"I want to see the sort of Leeds performance all the time from him. I liked the way he helped create chances for others and also worked hard towards the back.

"I know he can score goals; I want to see him contribute fully all of the time. Then we can talk more about him," Zola added, with a knowing smile.
