Match preview

A Watford outfit on the up are set to make the trip to Wales on Wednesday, November 2nd, hopeful of taking another step towards positioning themselves amongst the Championship’s promotion playoff picture.

Standing in the way of the Hornets? A Cardiff City side fresh off a much-needed victory of their own.

Watford, of course, have endured an altogether hit-and-miss campaign to date, after being widely viewed as one of the frontrunners for a return to the top-flight ahead of the new term getting underway.

Recent weeks, though, have seen the Hertfordshire-based outfit finally begin to string together a solid run of form.

All told, under the watch of new boss Slaven Bilic, Watford have racked up wins in three of their last four outings.

The most recent of these came this past Saturday, when a late Joao Pedro effort proved enough to put Wigan Athletic to the sword at the DW Stadium.

Also noteworthy is the fact that, after long struggling at the back, the Hornets have now kept back-to-back clean sheets for the first time all season.

Safe to say, then, that Wednesday’s visitors will head into the action in Wales’ capital confident in their chances of making it four wins from five since mid-October.

As alluded to above, though, upcoming hosts Cardiff are fresh off a fine result of their own last time out.

On the back of a three-game losing streak, the Bluebirds played host to Rotherham United, desperate to get back on track courtesy of a three-point haul.

And, when all was said and done, this is precisely what Mark Hudson’s side managed.

A dominant showing ultimately saw Cardiff rewarded with the game’s solitary goal 25 minutes from time, when a moment of individual brilliance on the part of Jaden Philogene saw the Aston Villa loanee pick out the top corner with aplomb.

The Welsh outfit, in turn, have for the time being put some much-needed daylight between themselves and the Championship’s bottom-three.

We at 101, though, are nevertheless backing visitors Watford, when all is said and done, to emerge from the Cardiff City Stadium with all three points on Wednesday night.
