Troost-Ekong:  Watford Must Get Points Away

William Troost-Ekong insists Watford must start racking up points in away games following their struggles on the road this season, reports Completesports.com.

The Hornets have dropped two points at home this season, but have only collected seven out of a possible 21 on their travels.

Vladimir Ivic’s men were held to a 0-0 draw by Bristol City in another away game on Wednesday night.

“We’ve got a great team, but it’s now about showing it,” Troost-Ekong told the club’s official website.

“The time about talking aims and goals has been and gone. Everyone knows what we are going for. Now we have got to go out and do it. We are on track and not far off it.

” There are improvements we can make. We are going alright, but there is a lot more potential in this team.”

The 27-year-old has settled in well to life at Vicarage Road, helped by the fact he already owns a house in Hertfordshire and that his father-in-law is a season ticket holder.

This smooth acclimatisation has been reflected on the pitch, with Troost-Ekong looking assured at the heart of defence and chipping in with a crucial goal against Coventry City.

“The boys have been good,” said Troost-Ekong. “They have helped me a lot and I feel comfortable with the team. It’s the same system as we played in Udinese so that wasn’t a change for me and the language has not been a big deal either.

“The goal was a nice moment. Jimmy [Garner] made it easy as I just had to run, close my eyes and it was in the back of the net. He puts in some fantastic balls, like Ken. I didn’t get to enjoy it as much as I wanted as we hadn’t defended too well moments before, with at least their second goal.

” It felt great to put that right and get the three points, as that goal changed the momentum. Hopefully I can chip in with some more.”
