International breaks can often fall at the most inopportune of times and for Watford a two-week pause from action may be particularly hard to stomach.

The Hornets were sent into the break battered, beaten and bruised after a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Bournemouth.

Rather than having the chance to mount an immediate response, the Vicarage Road club will be left to stew on the loss ahead of returning to action at Wolves a week on Saturday.

It is little surprise then that Watford striker Andre Gray is among those eager to make amends for the off-colour showing against the Cherries.

“We know going there will not be easy, but we know what we are capable of in that dressing room," Gray told the club website.

“We need to put it right. It doesn’t get any easier, does it, playing Wolves, but we know we can go there and get a result.”

Watford head coach Javi Gracia believes the break from action can benefit his side as they look to rediscover the form which gave them five wins on the spin at the start of the season.

He will have to work on doing so with a squad which has been depleted by international call-ups after 10 of Watford's number were selected to represent their countries.

The Spaniard will continue to push those who remain at Watford's London Colney training base between now and the trip to Molineux.

For Gray, the chance to step away from the pressure of Premier League action is a welcome one and he expects Watford to return refreshed.

"A lot of the boys are away on international duty and I think the break might do us good," the 27-year-old said.

"Sometimes you just need to take your mind off it and start again. I think everybody will be ready to come back next week, get their heads down and start again. We need to put it right."

Wolves have made adapting to life in the Premier League look straightforward since returning to the top flight with promotion from the Championship last term.

They sit seventh in the table with 15 points to their name and are unbeaten in their last five outings.

Watford will have to play far better than they did against Bournemouth to gain a positive result on their travels against Wolves.

Gray accepts Watford were not good enough against Eddie Howe's side but still felt the losing margin was harsh on the Hornets.

"I don't think we were terrible as we actually started well." he said.

"Then they scored off a counter-attack from our free-kick and then the red card and penalty came at a difficult time.

"When you are 2-0 down with 10 men in the Premier League, it is always going to be difficult and they punished us."
