Nigel Pearson has total faith in his players and is unwavering in his belief that they possess the ability and desire to take advantage of the fact their Premier League fate remains in their own hands.
The Hornets can move four points clear of the bottom three with a much-needed win over Norwich City on Tuesday evening and inflict some scoreboard pressure on Bournemouth and Aston Villa who do not play until Thursday.
“I look at our players in training, look in their eyes and I get lots of positive signals back,” said the Head Coach.
“We just have to back ourselves and keep calm about it. We've got to perform and find ways of winning games. If that means winning ugly, I don't care. It's about getting enough results.
“There is a desire to improve upon our performances and results, for sure. The important thing is to get the balance right between being calm and recognising the necessity to perform and pick points up.”
