Watford boss wants room to breathe
Brendan Rodgers immediate future has been under an intense media spotlight all week and player sales pressure simply won`t go away but the Watford gaffer insists this week`s 6 pointers can give him "a bit of breathing space".
The Hornets battle against relegation really gathers pace over the next 7 days in a Vicarage Road double header against Norwich and Coventry - 2 teams both scrapping for their lives.
Speaking to the Watford Observer, a seemingly unfazed Rodgers insisted "I feel with these two teams being in and around us then it is going to be important for us to win these two games….It won`t make or break our season but everyone knows the importance of it…It could give us a bit of breathing space".
With the bottom 3 - Forest, Charlton and Doncaster - all losing again in midweek [Tuesday] Watford stay out of the relegation zone ahead of the Norwich clash - a fact not lost on the gaffer. He added "…it could be more healthier by the end of Saturday if we have six points on the board."
