William Troost-Ekong believes bouncing straight back with victory over Wycombe Wanderers will do the Hornets the world of good.
The defender felt it was always important Watford not only took all three points on Wednesday night, but in doing so regained some of the defensive solidity that served them so well prior to the last few games.
“It was important to make sure we got back to what we were doing before,” said the 27-year-old, speaking to Hive Live.
“In the game against Blackburn we were fantastic at the front but in recent weeks we’ve been letting in too many goals, so to get a clean sheet and for Andre [Gray] to get two goals is fantastic for everybody’s confidence and it’s just the result we needed.”
Having not scored since November, Gray bagged both goals for the London club and led the line with confidence in the absence of suspended forward João Pedro.

“Everybody saw he was playing football with a smile today and we’re really happy for him,” said Troost-Ekong.
“When you have a squad like we have, you need everyone to chip in and he was fantastic today, so hopefully it’s the first two goals of many to come.”
The Hornets have now won 41 points on home turf this season, more than any other Championship team, and will look to add to that impressive tally when Nottingham Forest visit in three days’ time.
“I feel like this is becoming holy ground now. To come and play at Vicarage Road for any team is going to be difficult,” said the Nigerian international.
“Everyone’s enjoying their football and they’ve done unreal to keep the pitch how it is because it suits us to play the ball. We need to make our home games count and this should be our fortress.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
