Watford manager Adrian Boothroyd believes it was the club’s destiny to reach the Premiership … and they are there to stay.

Boothroyd: ‘I know we’re going to be favourites to go down. But that’s okay. We won’t go down. If I started to think about that, that’s what will happen – it would be a self-fulfilling prophecy.

‘The best way to sum it all up is to say we are now a model for other clubs that don’t have a great deal of money.

‘With good organisation, preparation, a fantastic work ethic, a real hunger and a no-fear attitude anything is possible.

‘It’s about playing the game and not the occasion. I was hoping I’d have eight or nine players on top of their game on the day. I got 13 or 14.

‘I want to build something at Watford. I want us to have the best academy in the world, to bring youth through and I want the club to grow.’
