Match preview

Two sides desperate for a bounce-back result are set to lock horns in a Championship clash at Vicarage Road this Saturday, February 11th.

The matchup in question will see Watford act as hosts, in a meeting with fellow promotion playoff candidates Blackburn Rovers.

As things stand, it is the former who boast the advantage in the table, sitting a solitary point clear of Blackburn, albeit having played a game more.

The Hornets, though, are currently in the midst of a concerning spell of form.

Not only that, but, last time out, Watford surrendered a two-goal 2nd-half advantage to eventually depart the Madejski Stadium with only a share of the spoils against Reading.

Such woes have culminated in the Hornets slipping well off the pace of the automatic promotion spots, to 5th in the standings in England’s 2nd tier.

And yet, Bilic and co. could well head into Saturday’s action boasting quiet confidence when it comes to their chances of clinching a bounce-back result.

This comes with upcoming opponents Blackburn having looked equally as disappointing over the course of recent weeks.

Blackburn, of course, spent a prolonged stretch of the campaign sitting pretty in 3rd in the Championship, adrift of only runaway top-two Burnley and Sheffield United.

This came as Jon Jon Dahl Tomasson’s troops continued to defy the odds in grinding out results, as those below them faltered.

Owing to a combination of new-found consistency on the part of Middlesbrough, Luton and more, alongside a dismal stretch of results over the course of the last couple of months, though, Rovers now find themselves on the outside looking in at the promotion playoff picture.

Like Watford, Blackburn have picked up just one win from their last five across all competitions, to go alongside one in six in the league.

Most recently, they were even held to a goalless draw by bottom-of-the-table Wigan Athletic at Ewood Park.

All things considered, we at 101 therefore view an eventual sharing of the spoils as the most likely outcome upon the full-time whistle bringing a close to proceedings at Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon.

Should you wish to back a winner, though, hosts Watford look the more likely as things stand.
