Mariappa reveals key to Watford success

Adrian Mariappa has credited togetherness for Watford's success this season.

The Hornets are in the FA Cup semi-finals and one point off a European berth in the league.

"We don't want to peter out again, we want to try and finish as high as we can with as many points as we can," he said.

"Who knows where that'll be but we'll be giving it our best.

"This season the lads have shown great togetherness, for me that's come from the manager, the way we train and we're fully confident we can go and beat anyone this season.

"You can see where we are in the league and it's not by chance or by fluke, we deserve to be in the position we are.

"The whole squad's pulling in the same direction, all believing in the gaffer's philosophy of trying to do it together - everyone's bought into that."
