WANDERERS skipper Zat Knight wants the team to reward its loyal travelling fans by making it a hat-trick of away wins when the team return to Championship action at Watford on Saturday.

After wins at Birmingham and Bournemouth on their previous two away days, the Whites head to Hertfordshire looking for a third win at Vicarage road in four visits.

There is sure to be a sizeable contingent of the Whites army in attendance and the club captain says the squad are fully aware of how much it means to them.

Knight says the feeling of celebrating an away win with the fans, like they did at Bournemouth, is one of the best in football and hopes they can experience that again on Saturday.

And he says there are plenty of reasons to believe it can happen after their last two away displays.

In both victories, Knight came off the bench to help secure the points and at Bournemouth he was on the pitch when Jermaine Beckford sparked wild celebrations with a 90th-minute strike to wrap up victory.

He said: “It was an all-round pleasing afternoon at Bournemouth.

“It was a great feeling when that second goal went in and to celebrate in front of the travelling fans was amazing – it is one of the best feelings in football.

“Our fans were great and anyone who was there would have seen the huge outpouring of emotion.

“All of the boys know how much it means to them and hopefully we can send them home happy again on Saturday.”

Wanderers followed up the Bournemouth result with a first victory on home soil against Millwall to make it back-to-back league wins for the first time in seven months.

Now they are looking for a third successive three pointer since that spell in early April and Knight says the mood is optimistic.

He added: “The lads are upbeat and in good spirits.

“We feel this little run we are currently on has been on the cards for the last few weeks now.

“Of course, there’s still some frustration given the amount of draws we have had, but we’ve got to now make sure we’re winning games.

“The mood is certainly better now.

“We know we haven’t started the season well and you can’t help but look at the league table.

“There’s obviously a bit of a gap between ourselves and where we want to be.

“But we showed last season we are capable of going on a run and catapulting ourselves up the table.

“The key thing is that we don’t leave it until the very last minute – we’ve got to be looking at going on a run now.

“There isn’t much between any two teams in this division on any given day.

“Within five or six games, we believe we can get right up there.

“Of course, it is easy enough to say it but we’ve got to put that plan into action.”
