What The Boss Says - Watford v Latics

What The Boss Says - Watford v Latics

Owen Coyle take his troops south to Watford on Saturday as he plots to get the Latics challenging for the promotion places in the Championship, apart from the opening day demolition of Barnsley at Oakwell we haven't fared too well on our travels so far this season and the test at Vicarage Road will certainly be a tough one

Coyle is well aware that the Latics need to step up away from the DW Stadium and he is hoping to build on last Sunday when Ipswich were put to the sword, but Vicarage Road isn't and easy place to visit and Watford are in fine form at the moment

Speaking to the Latics official website about the game Coyle said - 'We all know it's a very busy part of the season, so it was a big positive to come through the Manchester City game in midweek injury-free.

'We've got a tough game coming up this weekend which we'll look to freshen up for, but on the back of a fantastic result against Ipswich Town last weekend we go to Vicarage Road with the intention of taking all three points.

'We've shown at different stages of the season so far that we're more than capable of producing match-winning performances against the division's other top teams.

'Following on from the Ipswich game we want to be a threat going forward and keep shutting out the opposition at the back as we also did in Belgium.

'So far this season we've been terrific at the DW Stadium, and on the opening day showed we can go away from home, keep clean sheets and win games.

'We want to get back to those levels, but everyone is going to have to play to their maximum to achieve it. The players know that but they're up for the challenge, and whilst we are still a young group the attitude every day has been fantastic which will help as we progress.'
