Hudson pre-Watford | We'll play our way

Mark Hudson spoke to the press ahead of Wednesday night’s meeting with the Hornets at CCS.

Set to host Watford under the floodlights in the capital, the interim City boss discussed the busy run of fixtures ahead, with four matches to be played before the World Cup break.

“It’s coming around quickly; four games in ten days is obviously tough,” began Hudson. “That’s what the Championship gives you with the World Cup coming up.

“We try to prepare for that and have done for a while, as we’ve known that it’s been coming.

“We know that Watford are a good team. They’ve got some really good players and individual match-winners, so again we need to be looking forward to it at our stadium.

"It’s an opportunity for them to come to us, and we’ve got to deliver on our game plan and play our way, which we will do.

“We’re going to have to be right at our top level to get the result, so we’re looking forward to it."

Continuing, Huds reflected on the selection options within his City squad, with depth having paid dividends over the weekend against Rotherham United.

He said: “We want to win every game, it’s what we always set out to do. We have our game plans which are set individually for each match, and now we’re just looking to make sure that we get the results.

“What a squad should have is opportunities to step into the side, and we’ve rotated enough for everybody to know that the chance will be there as long as they push hard enough, which they are.

“They’ve got to be ready when called upon, and the lads showed that on the weekend when we made changes at half-time, and they made the impact that changed the game.”

Providing an injury update, Mark concluded:Rubin [Colwill] had an opportunity to get out and train on the grass with the physios today, which is good news. We’ve got a plan for him to carry on training now, also. Isaak [Davies] has had some kinetic testing, and Ebou Adams has been back in training, too.”
