Watford manager Malky Mackay urged his side to continue their strong form at home after overseeing a 2-0 victory over fellow Coca-Cola Championship promotion hopefuls Bristol City.
First-half goals from Heidar Helguson and Martin Taylor put the Hornets in control at the interval and it was a lead they rarely looked like relinquishing.
"It was good to get back home again and obviously get the win, the clean sheet and score two goals," said the Scot. "I'm delighted. We have lost one goal in three games so it looks like we're sealing it up at the back and also getting on the scoresheet as well."
The three points meant Watford have taken 19 from the last available 24 at Vicarage Road and Mackay added: "We've got to make sure that we keep that record going.
"We've got to make sure performance levels are up there and I told them to take their performance from Saturday, because we did well [1-0 defeat at Barnsley] and deserved something out of it.
"I told them take that into the game and also the game last Tuesday [3-0 win] against Sheffield United and start like that and I think they did."
