In his weekly newsletter, Watford boss Aidy Boothroyd has urged Watford supporters to outsing the Leeds fans – and recreate the atmosphere against Crystal Palace.

Hi everyone,

Having worked so hard to get to the Play-Off Final, I thought that it was very important for us to get straight back into changing room after beating Crystal Palace in the semi-final and immediately start preparing for Leeds United, as I explained before.

The 48 games we?ve already played this season have all led to this one and to be 90 minutes away from Premier League football means that we will continue to be as professional in our preparations as we have been all season.

Part of those plans has involved already taking a trip to Cardiff this week to check out our hotel and the Millennium Stadium. We?re a young team and some of our lads will have not been there before so we thought it was a good idea to familiarise ourselves with the stadium.

I?ve no doubt that the whole experience will have been useful because it?s easy to get caught up in the occasion of finals. We’ll be going there to play a game just like any other game.

Everybody connected with the club has gone into over-drive for the last week and a half and their work is very much appreciated by me, the football staff and players.

Now we look to you, our fans, who have been magnificent all season, to do your bit on Sunday by outsinging the Leeds fans just like you did against Crystal Palace last week.

Thanks for your support, see you in Cardiff.

Come On!
