Watford striker Troy Deeney says his side have to keep building as they bid to record a fourth consecutive Championship win, at Millwall on Tuesday.

The Hornets have made a promising start under the guidance of manager Xisco Munoz, who replaced Vladimir Ivic as head coach in December after joining from Georgian top-flight side Dinamo Tbilisi.

We have to beat Millwall - it's as simple as that.

Watford have won four of their five league matches since Xisco arrived at Vicarage Road, which includes each of their last three against Huddersfield, Barnsley and Stoke.

The Hornets have struggled to replicate their performances at home on the road, but goals from Deeney and Ismaila Sarr guided them to a 2-1 win at Stoke on Saturday.

That was just a third away win from 12 attempts for Watford, who sit third in the Championship and seven points adrift of leaders Norwich City.

However, Deeney is delighted with recent performances and wants to see them follow it up with victory over Millwall at The Den.

Speaking to Watford’s official website, Deeney said: "We have to beat Millwall - it's as simple as that.

"It's not going to be easy, as it's always difficult when you play there, but if we have the mentality we have at the moment and build on the quality, then we can be a real force in this division."

Deeney added: "It's the first time we've won three on the bounce [this season]. We have to keep growing and keep building. Playing against teams like Stoke and Millwall, you have to roll your sleeves up and dig in."

Watford are?13/10 to win a fourth straight league match at Millwall on Tuesday and?1/1 to be promoted back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.
