Prödl | “We Need To Get Back On Track”

Saturday’s trip to Brighton and Hove Albion begins the period of four matches in 11 days for Watford, with fixtures against Leicester, Swansea and Manchester City to follow the clash at the Amex.

The Hornets have failed to pick up three points since their victory over Newcastle United four weeks ago. Despite this, Austrian international Sebastian Prödl believes his teammates are ready for the upcoming period and feels he has the key to the Golden Boys re-finding their form.

“It’s going to be hard, we need to recover well, we need to take care and we need to be very professional as well.” Prödl warned.

“It would be quite clever between the games to switch off. Of course we have to train and recover but as well switch off from football and try and spend some time with our families, some quiet moments to get some balance in our lives and this hopefully could be the key to get some success back.”

Watford will travel to the south coast this weekend in search of their first win in five Premier League games. Their hosts are without a win in even longer as their winless run spans seven matches.

When questioned on the importance of this weekend’s game, Prödl was under no illusions as to the challenge his side faces.

“We need to get back on track, it’s going to be a tough game. We’ve analysed them and watched them, especially at home they are always a good side and close to winning.

“Nothing is easy in the Premier League as we all know, it’s going to be a tough game for both sides, both need a win, both need points and everyone wants to start this intense Christmas period with a win.”
