The Seagulls have been working hard in training after boss Chris Hughton demanded more after the 5-1 defeat to the Reds.
After suffering their biggest defeat at the Amex Stadium, Brighton will now travel to the John Smith’s Stadium to take on another team that got promoted last season.
Stephens insists the mood in the camp is high and they are ready to make amends.
He told Brighton’s official website: “It’s another big game for us and we’ve got plenty more matches between now and Christmas, so the thing we must do is dust ourselves down and keep going.
“It will be another tough game but we have to re-group this week now and then get ready for what will be a different challenge. We’ll got there with confidence and see it as a good opportunity to get three points in what is a crucial stage of the season.”
Watford boss Javi Gracia does not think Abdoulaye Doucoure's form will be affected by his omission from France's latest squad.
