W.B.A - Watford: Pre-Match Quotes

W.B.A - Watford: Pre-Match Quotes

A crucial game for both sides. Should Watford win, top spot is theirs for a few days. If the Baggies win, they remain top and can finally look more assertive in their promotion push with just 3 games to play.

All the more reason to get over that horror show last Wednesday at the hands of Barnsley. The man charged with keeping out Kevin Phillips explains further:

'The changing room is pretty low. We realise we have another big game on Saturday.

'We're going to have to do things the hard way now and win our remaining games. West Brom is our biggest yet.

'But hopefully we will bounce back - we normally do. We will have to put this defeat against Barnsley out of our minds.'


Very true, after each of the Hornets most crushing defeats, they've at least bounced back with a win. The most notable came after a 3-0 defeat to the Baggies, at home. Kevin Phillips was on form that day as Lee notes, but then it's a star team that wins games, not a team of stars:

'Kevin Phillips is a top striker - he will be tricky and we will have to keep him quiet.

'They are a very good team and are not top by accident.

'This is a game we are going to have to get ourselves up for and hopefully we can go there, put on a show and win.'


From the Albion perspective, Neil Clement confirms that his side will find today's game just as hard as the Hornets, especially after our defeat:

'Being top of the table is where you want to be with five games to go,' he said.

'I doubt very much if Watford will be as bad as they were on Wednesday when they lost 3-0 to Barnsley.

'The game is live on TV and, with both sides going for promotion, I think it will be a lot tighter than it was the other night.

'Having said that we'll be in front of our own fans on a good pitch and we're all hungry to perform on the day.

'If we did win, five points would be a big gap between us and them at this stage. We'll see where we are after the game.'


Precisely why this is a six-pointer. For both teams...
