Hor­nets can bat­tle way out of cur­rent rut, in­sists Gra­cia

Belfast Telegraph - - SPORT - BY NICK PUREWAL

JAVI Gra­cia in­sists he is “not wor­ried” about his Wat­ford fu­ture de­spite his side claim­ing just two wins in 11 Premier League matches.

Wat­ford travel to Ever­ton on Mon­day night to take on a Tof­fees side led by Marco Silva who was sacked by the Hor­nets in Jan­uary af­ter just one vic­tory in 11 games.

Cur­rent Wat­ford boss Gra­cia in­sisted his side will not be mo­ti­vated to get one over their old man­ager on Mon­day, and also claimed he re­mains un­fazed by the Hor­nets’ lean spell.

“In my opin­ion we are play­ing well; I like to be de­mand­ing of my play­ers be­cause in this way we will im­prove, we’ll have more op­tions to im­prove our re­sults as well,” said Gra­cia (right).

“But in this mo­ment I’m not wor­ried ecause I think we are in the right way, im­prov­ing some­thing; we are close to im­prov­ing the re­sults.

“I think the play­ers have con­fi­dence in the way we are play­ing, the way we are work­ing in all the dif­fer­ent games.

“But they also know we need to im­prove some­thing to have bet­ter re­sults, to fin­ish bet­ter.

“We have cre­ated many chances in all the games. Maybe the last game was dif­fer­ent, but in all the games we have played we were close to get­ting points or wins.”

Gra­cia signed a new four-anda-half-year con­tract with Wat­ford at the end of last month.
