The Hornets thrashed Leeds 6-1 away from home at the weekend and have now picked up seven points in their last three matches in the Championship.

Gianfranco Zola's side have now moved up to 12th in the table and Almunia is believes a newfound confidence can accelerate their ascent.

"We have proved in the last few games that the team is growing and getting better," he told the club's website.

"We feel more confidence, we feel bigger than before, so to speak, and we have the quality to be in a better position than we already are now.

"We have played recently against some good teams and shown good character, good quality and a desire to win."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
