Gracia looking for Hornets to overhaul Wolves

Watford
Javi Gracia says it would be a 'great achievement' if Watford could finish in seventh place until the end of the season.

Javi Gracia says it would be a ‘great achievement’ if Watford could finish in seventh place at the end of the season.

The Hornets are on course for their highest finish of the Premier League era and consolidated eighth position with their 1-0 home win over Everton on Saturday.

That victory closed the gap on seventh-placed Wolves to just a point as the Molineux men prepare to host Newcastle in their game in hand on Monday.

And Gracia appears to have set his side the target of overhauling Nuno Espirito Santo’s men in the final 12 matches of the campaign.

He told Radio Marca: ‘We’re a club that played in the Championship three years ago, so the priority is to stabilise in the Premier League and enjoy it year after year.

‘Finishing seventh would be a great achievement, but anything better than the position of last season (14th), would be a success.’
