Xisco Munoz has another chance to improve Watford's away form when they travel to Millwall this evening, but is not expecting to pick up an easy three points.

The head coach realises there is a good opportunity to continue his side's winning streak, with the Lions going into the game having won just one from their last six in the Championship, while the Hornets have won four out of their last five.

However, on the road things have not been straight forward for Watford, with only three wins coming away from Vicarage Road so far this season.

Speaking to the club website, the Spaniard said it was important for his side to play with intensity as they look to close the gap on top of the table Norwich City.

“It's going to be a tough game,” Said Munoz. “They are physical and will fight a lot. We must find a way to win the game and get another victory away. We need the players to concentrate on every single detail and play with the same intensity we did in the second half. We had to be patient in a difficult first half at Stoke, but now this is the most important game, this is the one. We know how important it is to reduce the gap with the teams at the top and close the month of January with a win. We need to give our best, fight a lot and put pressure on the other team. Everyone needs to be in the best state of mind.”

The head coach may opt to rotate some of his players again this evening, as he looks to keep his team fresh with games coming thick and fast.

He has been impressed with how his side has adapted to changes in the team so far since his arrival, particularly in their last win away at Stoke City.

“It is good the guys are flexible in terms of their position,” he said. “Everyone adapted really well and I'm happy that they performed at their best and gave everything for the team, despite the movement. At half-time we had a clear picture of what was not working, so the lads were told straight away and together we found the best solution for the problem. Everyone was together and we found the solution to win the game.”

The win over Stoke saw the Hornets recover from an unimpressive first half performance to produce enough quality and control to win the match.

Munoz is hoping that, going forward, his team can exert more dominance for longer periods.

“In every game there will be difficult moments,” he said. “We have to limit them. Everyone has helped each other, even during difficult periods of the game. We have slowly got control of the game and then we start to move the ball. It's great to see. This is what the guys are trying during the sessions. We can do it more in some games and less in other games, but this is our way.”
