Watford center-back William Troost-Ekong was expecting a tough championship game against Bristol City on Tuesday night.
The Vicarage Road team are fifth in the standings while the Robins are third, just four points behind leaders Norwich City.
Watford missed the highest score last time out against the Queens Park Rangers after drawing a first-half lead at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.
Troost-Ekong believes it is time for the hornets to get back to winning ways, despite warning his side that it won’t be a walk in the park.
“It’s going to be a difficult game. They have quality and we have to pull in the same direction and everyone wants to remedy after the QPR game, ”Troost-Ekong told the club website.
“The motivation is definitely there and it would be good to get a good win on the road. We haven’t made it yet [apart from the narrow win at Derby].
“Watford is a big game for any team we play against and we need to recognize that. We have to take away a few points.
“We have a great team, but now it’s about showing it off. The time to talk about goals is over. Everyone knows what we want.
« Now we have to go out and do it. We are on the right track and not far from it. We can make improvements. We’re okay, but there’s a lot more potential on this team. ”
Troost-Ekong teamed up with the Hornets of Udinese over the summer and adapted well to English football.
The Nigerian international has credited his teammates for helping him find his way around the championship quickly.
“The boys were good. You have helped me a lot and I feel good on the team, « he continued.
« It’s the same system we played on Udinese so that wasn’t a change for me and the language wasn’t a big deal either. ”
The 27-year-old opened his goalscoring account for Watford ahead of the international break against Coventry City and is hoping to score more goals for the club.
“The goal was a nice moment. Jimmy [Garner] made it easy for me as I just had to run, close my eyes and it was in the back of the net, ”he added.
« He puts some fantastic balls in there, like Ken. I couldn’t enjoy it as much as I wanted as we hadn’t defended too well just before, at least with her second goal.
« It felt great to correct that and get the three points as that goal changed the swing. Hopefully I can do a little more. ”
Troost-Ekong has played six championship games for Watford and is expected to take part in the parade against Bristol City.
