Watford will approach away matches in the same way as home games

Watford will approach away matches in the same way as home games

That’s according to the Hornets boss, Xisco Munoz

Xisco Munoz says Watford’s mentality will not change whether they are at home or away ahead of Saturday’s trip to Brighton.

The Hornets marked their Premier League return last weekend with a thrilling 3-2 victory over Aston Villa at Vicarage Road.

Next up for Watford is a trip to the Amex Stadium, where they will take on a Brighton team backed by a full house, which has not been the case for any of Xisco’s away matches since taking over at the club in December, with games largely behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic.

He said: “It is true we need to prepare for this situation away. We need to know what is coming up and we are away, but we play with the same character.

“The team show everyone how they play with character, the team know what is important and all the situations are important. What is important for us is to help our players and we were very good in all the situations against Aston Villa.

“After we will see if we win or lose the game but the most important is to continue with this attitude. If we play with this attitude, sure we will have the chance to win more games and it doesn’t matter if we play away or at home.

“It is more comfortable when we play at home because we play with our people and I am sure they help us, but it is the moment to have a good mentality. When we play away, we must play with the same passion and the same ambition.”
