Xisco Munoz cannot wait to get his chance to seal Watford’s return to the Premier League this Saturday and is looking forward to enjoying the day as much as he can.

A win at home against Millwall would be enough for the Hornets to cement their place back in the top flight at the first time of asking and with their record at Vicarage Road this season boasting 17 wins from 21 matches, it would take a brave man to bet against them.

The head coach is already excited by the prospect of picking up the all important, and record-equalling, 18th home victory that would take them out of the second tier and back up into the big time.

“I want Saturday morning right now,” said Munoz. “The most important is we know what is our responsibility for this game but I want to enjoy this situation because we’ve worked very hard.

“The players have worked very hard and everyone behind me has worked very hard for this moment.

“The fans enjoy the situation because everyone gives their support, always. In the bad moments and the good moments and we need to enjoy it. We need to enjoy this moment because we want this situation and after we’ll see what happens.

“I’m sure we will try to give our best because everybody knows about this. I’m sure we want to enjoy this situation, and it’s important everybody has good energy for the game, has full power, because the team is ready for this important goal.”

Despite his enthusiasm for enjoying the day, Munoz demanded his players give their full attention to the match, rather than the occasion.

He warned his players that anything less than 100 per cent might not be enough and said they need to maintain their aggressive style.

“If we don’t focus on the game, we will start to lose,” he said. “It’s most important that we start to prepare and keep our focus on the game. And the focus is on making sure we give our best performance and go to the game with 100 per cent for all situations.

“We need to play with intensity, mentality, and a lot of ambition to try to win this game.

“The focus is on the game, not what happens in any of the other games. The objective is Millwall, to give a very good performance, continue with our style, try to have important things with the ball and try to play always in attack, in attack, in attack.”

That style has stood Munoz is good stead and has seen the Hornets pick up 12 wins from their last 15 games.

Asked if he could have ever dreamt of such a run as the one his team have been on since the middle of February, he said his squad was full of players capable of producing in important moments.

"I know what is the level of our players,” he said.

“Sometimes you can win, sometimes you can lose because football is like this. This is the reality. Sometimes you need a little bit of luck in the games.

“But if you ask me about the team, about the players, and the level of our players, I can only say we have a very good team. We have a strong team. We have players with experience, we have players with ambition, we have players who want to help us take one step more in front, and want to go back to the big level, and it’s like this.

“Winning is very, very difficult and the team has shown an important level in important moments in the Championship. And if you ask me about only the results, I don’t know exactly [if I could have seen it coming], but I know what is the level in our team and in our squad.”
