Match preview

Two sides fresh off altogether contrasting weekend results are set to lock horns in a Championship fixture at Vicarage Road on Tuesday, March 14th.

The matchup in question will see Watford act as hosts, in a meeting with Birmingham City.

Beginning with the former, Watford currently find themselves in the midst of an altogether concerning stretch of form.

Dating back to the middle of January, the Hornets have notched just a solitary victory from their last nine attempts.

Not only that, but two of their last three have culminated in defeat, including, alarmingly, this past weekend.

A trip to Loftus Road to take on a Queens Park Rangers outfit fresh off five losses on the bounce ultimately saw a solitary Tim Iroegbunam strike prove enough to condemn new boss Chris Wilder’s troops to the wrong side of a 1-0 result.

Watford, in turn, have tumbled to the depths of mid-table in England’s 2nd tier, a full six points adrift of the promotion playoff pace.

On the flip side, though, upcoming opponents Birmingham City are set to make the trip to Vicarage Road with spirits high in the camp.

This comes with the Blues having recovered from their own dismal stretch of recent form by way of a crucial three-point haul last time out.

Fresh off a solitary point from their prior five outings, John Eustace’s troops welcomed Rotherham United to St. Andrew’s on Saturday, in the knowledge that a fifth defeat in six could well have seen them dragged ever closer towards the relegation scrap.

When all was said and done in England’s west Midlands, however, goals on the part of Reda Khadra and Kevin Long proved enough to guide the hosts to a 2-0 triumph.

Birmingham, as a result, have put a full ten-point buffer between themselves and the bottom three.

With off-colour Watford remaining the overwhelming favourites with the bookmakers ahead of Tuesday night’s clash, one could, in turn, do a lot worse than punt on the visiting Blues to spring a surprise on their hosts, in emerging from proceedings at Vicarage Road with a hard-earned share of the spoils.
