Watford told to show desire

19th April 2019, 15:13 by Chris Rivers

Watford coach Javi Gracia says his players need to go out and show their eagerness to improve at Huddersfield on Saturday.

The Hornets head for the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday looking to complete a Premier League double over the Terriers after recording a 3-0 win in the reverse fixture in October.

Huddersfield's return to the Sky Bet Championship was confirmed last month with six games still to play but, while they have won only once in their last 21 league games, Gracia will take nothing for granted.

He told the club's official website: "In this moment, they are in a difficult situation, but they are a team with a lot of virtues offensively.

"They pass well, they create chances, they attack well offensively and from set pieces they are good. They have a good balance in the team.

"We have to be able to take advantage of the fact they are in a difficult moment and try to show who is the team who wants to improve their position in the table. We have to show it in the game as it will be a demanding game."

Watford currently sit in 10th place in the table on 46 points - five more than they managed in the whole of last season - with five games still to play and with an FA Cup final against Manchester City to come.
