Hornets head coach Beppe Sannino says his Watford side must have “one personality” whether they are playing at Vicarage Road or away from home.
The Golden Boys’ first trip of their Championship campaign takes them to Norfolk tomorrow to face Norwich City, who were relegated from the Premier League last season.
Watford struggled on the road in the previous campaign. They recorded just four away victories and had the seventh worst record in the league.
Sannino is hoping that changes and believes his players are confident after recording a 3-0 win against Bolton Wanderers on Saturday and overcoming Stevenage 1-0 in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday.
He said: “I would like Watford to have one personality whether we are playing at home or away. I want to see the same performance.
“I don’t want a team that wins at home and but loses away. We must do a good job and we must have the same personality no matter if we are at Vicarage Road or somewhere else.”
Sannino added: “I believe my players have confidence. When a player gains confidence then whether they play against Stevenage or against Norwich, it means they are a good player.”
Norwich’s Championship opening weekend ended with a 1-0 defeat to newly-promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday.
Sannino is wary of the threat Norwich will pose to his side and believes their defeat to Wolves could provide the Yellows with extra motivation.
He said: “Norwich lost their first match of the season so the difficulty for us is they will be an angry team. They will be playing in front of their fans for the first time this season so will want to get a good result.
“I believe it will be a very, very good match for both sets of supporters.”
