Watford manager Aidy Boothroyd believes that his players' past experience of fighting for promotion will stand them in good stead for this season's run-in.
The Hornets are currently third in the Championship table, ahead of a clash with top-of-the-table Bristol City at Ashton Gate on Tuesday evening.
Boothroyd told the club's official website: "I've always believed at this time of the season you get to see people like oranges - you squeeze them and some of them tend to capitulate.
"Thankfully we've been here before in high-pressure situations and I think that will stand us in good stead.
"We're becoming difficult to beat again and when you come to the last ten games that's what you want, because we've got players who will score goals.
"We know where we're going, we know what we're doing and I think we're in a very strong position."
