Watford supremo Aidy Boothroyd has welcomed the decision to provide the Lower Rous for away fans in the play-off semi-final, thus giving the whole of the Vicarage Road End to home supporters.

?I believe that having our fans at either end of our ground will be of huge benefit to the team,? the gaffer told the official site.

?It will also be of huge benefit to me too, because we’ll have two seas of yellow at both ends,? he added. ?It’ll be a full house and we need as many fans as possible to help roar us on from both ends. If we can generate the type of noise I envisage, it will make for a great atmosphere.?

The gaffer also reaffirmed that his interest with the Hornets is not just on the pitch but for the club as a whole. Aidy said: ?I appreciate being involved in things, because I am not just first team manager, I want to be involved in everything that goes on football-wise, which I am.?

‘I also like to be involved in things off the pitch because I think it’s important that I know what’s going on and that I’m involved in it, because this is a club, it’s not just one first team,? concluded Boothroyd.
