Xisco Munoz has backed Joao Pedro to rediscover his goalscoring form and thinks Watford's trip to Luton Town today could give him the perfect opportunity.

The Brazilian opened his Hornets account with the winning goal against the Hatters on his 19th birthday earlier in the season and has gone on to add eight more goals to his tally since.

However, he has drawn a blank in the last eight matches of the campaign, missing one or two chances along the way.

The head coach remains optimistic about the striker's form and believes he is still putting in good performances, despite not scoring.

"I think Joao in the last game was at the perfect level, he worked very hard for the team in defence and in offence," said Munoz.

"He had chances, but you know, sometimes this happens. It's important that he continues with the same attitude in all the games and we will see, maybe he'll score in the next game.

Watford Observer:

"When you have players with this talent, you always wait for the best. They try to give the best for the team and I think it's a good opportunity and I'm sure maybe he will have a chance to score, or to give very important news for us."

Still only 19, Pedro is very much at the development stage of his career, but his potential has been easy to see at moments this season.

Munoz insists that the teenager can still deliver and that his age is not adding any extra pressure.

"It doesn't matter the age, the most important is how he feels now. He has ambition, he's in a very good mood always and he wants to give the best for the team," said the head coach.

"I think he had a very good performance in the last games and I'm a lucky man because when you have these players in the team, it's perfect for a coach.

"We will see what happens in the next game. I believe in him a lot."
