Watford City’s Sebastian Prödl is looking for a positive reaction from Odion Ighalo and his team mates against Swansea City on Monday evening.
Ighalo and his colleagues travel to Wales on Monday night to take on Swansea City, and for Prödl, the match can’t come quick enough as the Hornets look to return to winning ways.
The Nigerian international who is third on the league’s top scorers chart has not found the back of the net this year. His last was his 13th of the season in the 2-1 home defeat to Tottenham back in December.
The Austrian international sees it as the perfect opportunity to put right some of the wrongs from last week’s defeat against Southampton, and firmly believes there is more than enough quality within the Watford squad to bounce back and return to winning ways.
“We’re desperate to win, and I think we’re good enough to win against Swansea and the next games after that.
“But we have to focus on the things that made us strong in the past. So we have to take care, stick together and have a good connection on the pitch and everyone has to follow the same target to get three points from the game.
“It’s going to be difficult though, because I think Swansea is a very good team with a lot of good players and they have a lot of pressure to get away from the bottom of the table.
“So we have to be careful and we have to be awake and make sure we don’t make another game like on Wednesday against Southampton.” Prödl told Hornets PlayerHD
The Hornets arrive at the Liberty Stadium on the back of three straight Premier League defeats, two of them narrow losses to Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City.
Prior to the poor run, the Hornets had taken 13 points from their previous five games, and while Prödl is confident Wednesday’s performance was a one-off, it did serve as a reminder to Ighalo and others of just how tough the Premier League can be.
