Success for Watford this season can only be achieved through action and not words, according to head coach Javi Gracia.

The Spaniard said that his team can only finish this season on a high by winning their remaining games and not just talking about how good the campaign has been.

"We have to try it, but I think you don't do anything speaking, you have to do it on the pitch," he said.

"You have to win the next game. This way we will see after three games what we need.

"If it's able to achieve seventh, or eighth. We will fight until the end and try to get the best position for us."

The Hornets' boss has his own opinions about how successful this season has been for the club, but said he is waiting for all the games to be played before he makes a true judgement. 

One thing he is pleased about however is the way his side picked up three points against Huddersfield over the weekend.

Gracia admitted Watford were not at their best, but he was impressed with the way the team adjusted to several high profile absences to overcome their opponents.

He said: "I prefer to wait until the end. I have my opinion, my personal opinion, but I prefer to not speak about that in this moment because we have to play important games. 

"Every performance is different and I think it's good for the team to manage the different ways and the different games we play.

"In that case we were playing against a relegated team. We started scoring a goal early and after that we had the possession, but we didn't kill the game when I think we had to do it.

"All of them are ready and as you can see the last games without players that in other moments have been playing from the beginning, like Troy (Deeney), like Roberto (Pereyra), even Gerard (Deulofeu) the game before.

"The team keeps playing, keeps getting good results and it's the best news for us."
