Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner urged his side to keep focused and maintain the attitude, spirit & desire ahead of Saturday’s trip to Watford.

The Terriers travel South to face The Hornets for game number 10 of the 2018/19 Premier League campaign on Saturday afternoon.

David called for his side to maintain the focus when asked what it will take to turn some of the recent performances into rewards.

“I’m a strong believer and always will be, that if you perform consistently at the highest level then points, wins and goals will come.

“This is exactly what we have to be focused on, that we do what we’ve done in the past performance wise; the spirit which you’ve seen and felt, the attitude, the desire and the passion.”

Team news was also discussed with the Head Coach confirming that Danny Williams is the only current definitive absentee at this stage.

“The one who for sure who will miss the game is Danny Williams. Tommy Smith & Terence Kongolo are back in training today with the group, not everything, they will make the fitness test, and this is something we have to decide after today’s training.

“Rajiv felt a little bit ill yesterday and we’ll have to look how he is today.”

Town’s Head Coach then turned his attentions to Saturday’s opponent and was full of praise for the start that Javi Gracia’s side has made to the current campaign.

“I’m very impressed with what Javier is doing with Watford this season. They look very solid, organised and very difficult to breakdown.

“They have everything, they have power and speed and it’s an opponent which deserves to have the points on the board they have; there was not one lucky point they have so from my point of view and this shows how good they are.

“We go there and try tomorrow to get a positive result, this is our aim, and this is what we will do with whichever opponent we face. This was in the past, this was the same last week against Liverpool, the week before against Burnley, home or away.

“We try to play our football, we try to bring out strength on the grass, we try to perform at the highest level and of course we try to score and win as well. Some of the things we tried work and we go the rewards, some not, even if we play against a good Watford side.”
