Roberto Pereyra is ready to face Cardiff City on Friday evening, as is Isaac Success.

Head coach Javi Gracia confirmed the return of both players, with only Kiko Femenia now unavailable for selection, and he believes their return can help his side improve on recent performances.

He said: "This week Roberto Pereyra and Isaac Success are available and are ready to compete. Only Kiko Femenia is out injured, the rest of the team is ready for the next game.

"It’s good for me to have more options to choose, always it's difficult for me, but its good other players will be fit and ready to play.

"I think we can do much better than we did in the last games.

"It's true we have only lost two of the last ten games and the results are good, but now it’s the moment to be demanding if we want to keep our level until the end of the season."

Recent seasons saw Watford take a dip in form soon after Premier League survival was assured, but Gracia insists he is only focused on having a good end to the current campaign and not what has happened before.

He said: "It’s not important to me what happened in the past. My feelings in this moment are good and I think all the squad is ready to compete until the end of the season.

"In other seasons there were other circumstances, injured players, things that changed the possibility to win the games.

"In this season we have the squad fit, which is the most important for me, and with players ready to compete I’m sure we’ll have a good end to the season."

With the Hornets just three points off the often coveted 40 point mark, Premier League survival is all but already assured, but Gracia is not thinking about points tallies just yet and is instead keen for his side to show their ambition through their performances.

He said: "You see the last seasons to remain in the Premier League 35, 36, 37 points was enough. We don’t know what is the amount of points you need to remain, the best thing for us is the way the team is competing.

"In this moment we are not concerned about that, we are ambitious, positive and want to improve game by game."
