Watford defender, William Troost-Ekong has come out to hail his team for beating Sheffield Wednesday in Friday’s Championship game. He recently revealed that the victory was a massive one for the club and everyone is happy.
According to him, travelling that long-distance and then playing again was very difficult for the players, so the victory was definitely deserved.
He added that Watford controlled the game expertly and played good football against the opponent.
His words, “It was a lot to travel and then play again so it’s a massive result for us.”
“These kind of games are the ones that hopefully get you promoted. They are not as beautiful as a 6-0 at home and we had our luck with the goal, but you earn your luck and we worked hard for that.”
“We did well to control the game. Sheffield Wednesday had the ball a lot and played good football, but they weren’t that dangerous apart from one big chance.”
“That was the key week for our season. I felt that it wasn’t good enough, from how we played to the general feeling and the attitude of the team,”
“We were negative and everyone was complaining. We looked like 11 islands instead of a team. We have the quality, but we were not pulling in the same direction. I was driving home from the stadium and I called some of the boys and asked them what they thought.”
“Everyone had the same idea and we got in a room and had it out. Everyone was honest and said what they thought. If you can’t be honest with each other and not sugar coat stuff, then you aren’t going to make changes.”
“After that, the attitude changed in the team. The senior boys agreed with what I said and we changed, to play as a team and to leave it all out there. I was happy everyone agreed and we got it moving from there.”
“I’ve worked so hard to get back here and the team has worked so hard to get into this position. You have to enjoy it. That’s what ticks us over.”
“When we are out there, we don’t look under pressure and the more you play like that, the more confidence you build up. We are on an upward spiral, which is massive at this stage of the season.”
“It’s good to play in a team like this. Everyone feels confident and we know if we do our jobs, we probably win the game.”
