Daniel Bachmann is eyeing up an important derby win against Luton Town next week, as Watford look to take another step closer to the Premier League.

The goalkeeper is pleased to be going into the match against the Hornets' rivals off the back of yet another victory, an 11th from the last 13 matches, and hopes they can pick up three more important points.

Speaking to the club website after the win over Reading on Friday, the Austrian said the main task now is to remain focused.

“We’ve got five games to go and we’ve got to keep picking up points, but we’re in a good position now and it’s a very good win,” said Bachamnn.

“Now we’ve got to stay focused, prepare for next Saturday against Luton and try and get three points again.

“You always want to go into a derby off the back of a win. At this stage it doesn’t matter who you play, every game is difficult regardless of league position, but it’s just that extra bit special being a derby.

"We’d love to have fans there and to get three points in a big derby with them there, but hopefully it won’t be too long.”

Bachmann has had to stay patient while waiting for his chance in the first team, but this season an injury to Ben Foster gave him the opportunity he needed to lay claim to the position.

He hopes his efforts will be enough come the end of the campaign.

“As a keeper sometimes you have to be patient," he said. "But I always knew I was ready and that when chances come you have to take them, and I’m glad I’ve done it.

“Now it’s about seeing the season out well, picking up as many points as we can and then focusing on next year.”
