A crestfallen Gianfranco Zola praised Man of the Match Wilfried Zaha after he helped Crystal Palace win the Championship play-off final but insisted his Watford side will bounce back.Watford started with seven loan players in their line-up - six of whom are from Granada and Udinese, who are both owned by Watford's owners the Pozzo family. With the Football League set to tighten rules on loan players ahead of next season, there are fears that Watford's side may break up - something denied by a defiant Zola. "We're going to be stronger next year, that's for sure. This is the start for us," he added. "Everything we achieved this season, to be here playing was a big bonus for us. It was unexpected but we did it because it was deserved it. "We are determined to be stronger next year. We will be stronger next year."
