Dutch international Daryl Janmaat insists that in order for Watford to survive relegation the side will need to achieve at least four wins in their next Premier League fixtures.
Watford have managed just five wins in their league games this season but Janmaat is of the belief that The Hornets can pull it off with hard work and consistency.
Speaking ahead of this weekend's tricky tie with undefeated league leaders Liverpool, Janmaat said Watford had no excuses for not picking up victories in games against the teams closest to them in the table, but that bonus points from more difficult games might be required too.
"We know there are 11 finals left and we have to probably take four or five more wins, maybe, 12 or 15 points more," he said.
"We have to make sure we can do that. We have enough opportunities because we have some games left at home against teams around us and they are the games that we have to win, there are no excuses.
"From there, you hope to get some bonus points from the big teams that we probably need as well."
"If it happens a few games in a row, maybe it can go in your head, but I think we have to look forward now," he said.
"I'm confident that we have enough quality to stay up, but it's not only about quality, it's about everything around and we have to keep the heads cool and make sure we will take it game by game and get the points that we really need.
"We don't want to get relegated of course. It's going to be really tough, but all the teams around us now are so close, so tight and we have to be positive."
