#PLStories- Roy Hodgson urges Watford to finish season at Chelsea on a high #WATFORDFC

Roy Hodgson

Roy Hodgson has said a win against Chelsea on the final day of the season will be ‘worth its weight in gold’ for Watford. The ‘Orns are already relegated but will hope to finish the campaign on a positive note with a surprise win. The trip to Stamford Bridge looks like it will be the 74-year-old’s final match in charge of a Premier League club. While speaking in his press conference before the game, he reflected on what a good result would mean for him as well as the club going forward.

Roy Hodgson said: “I think from the club’s point of view, a positive result would be worth its weight in gold. Especially at Chelsea because you know, we’re not the bookies’ favourite to win that match. So if a group of players – many of whom were going to be here next year – could go to Chelsea and play well and get a result. And I thought we were on that track after getting relegated. You know, the match we played at Crystal Palace and the match we played against Everton, I thought we were actually on that track of finishing reasonably well with a bit of optimism for next year. Despite doing that, whilst knowing were relegated. I’m afraid the last result of course has plummeted the morale or made the morale plummet once again. So if we could just find a way to get a good performance, and hopefully, even better, a good result that will be awfully good for the team going forward.”

He then spoke of why it would mean a lot to himself and assistant Ray Lewington to end things on a relative high.

Roy Hodgson said: “Of course, for Ray and I, it would also not mean that our last match that we watch with Watford is one where we virtually hand it to our opponents on a plate because we made so many bad errors. That’s not like us. It happens in football, we all know that. Those five goals and the five errors that led up to the goals [against Leicester] normally, they’d be spread out over a lot more matches than one.”

Hodgson also pointed out the financial benefit of not finishing last in the league before stating that, just like Norwich boss Dean Smith, he will be ‘pushing’ his players to put in a good performance.
