Xisco Munoz has called for Watford to show ambition this weekend when they host Wolverhampton Wanderers at Vicarage Road, as they look to extend their run of home wins to 12 games.

The Hornets have won every competitive fixture at the Vic since their 6-0 victory over Bristol City on February 13 and the head coach is keen to maintain that run, as he looks to find the points his side need to stay in the Premier League this season.

While this weekend presents a good opportunity to do that, against a side who are winless in three, having lost all of their league matches so far this campaign without scoring a goal, the Spaniard is still wary about his opponents, who he believes have been unlucky.

“We have in front of us a very good team,” insisted Munoz.

“It’s true, they don’t have any points. But they have very good players, they have a very good style, they have a very good manager, they have very good things.

“They have played against very good teams and they don’t take the results, but we know we have in front a strong team. They know exactly what they want to play, they know exactly which space they want and we will have a strong game. I don’t want people thinking about how they don’t have points - I’m sure we have in front of us very good players and they’re a good, strong team.

“It’s very important to try to attack different spaces and we need to try to give 100 per cent to take the points because it’s important for us to continue with the same attitude as the last games. But it’s important also, we have a little more ambition to try to take the points, we know we have in front a good team, a strong team, and I’m sure we will have a very good game.”

Munoz called on the Watford supporters to play their part in the match as well and said he needed them to be supporting with “full power”.

“We need our fans to give a very good atmosphere in this very important game,” he added.

“It’s our second game at home and we need everyone to live the game with passion and power and try from the first minutes to try to give one plus for our team because we need our atmosphere in the maximum, full power.”

While this weekend’s match sees the Hornets start a run of three games where points may be more accessible than at other points in the season, with Norwich City and Newcastle to follow, Munoz insists that he is not focusing on taking points from specific games and instead wants his players to view each match as importantly as the others.

“It’s important we understand all the points is very important for us,” he said.

“We are thinking for the next game, but it’s important we understand, and who starts in the first 11 understands, that it is the three points that are most important this season, this is our mentality.

“We need to try to give all our best for this game - after we will see against Norwich. But the most important is the next game and to try to get the three points.

“I’m sure our players will try to give our best because we know what we have in front and I’m sure we want to improve.

“I want to continue with the same attitude, with the same power, because I think the team in the last games we played well and we started very well.

“It’s important that the players take this ambition about the points.

“They played very well but it’s not enough. I need one step more. I need to keep taking the points.”
