Match preview

A Watford outfit in the midst of a long-awaited surge up the table are set to act as hosts in a Championship clash at Vicarage Road on Saturday, November 5th.

The Hornets’ upcoming opponents? Relegation-battling Coventry City.

Watford, of course, currently stand as one of the most in-form sides in England’s 2nd tier.

This comes with the influence of boss Slaven Bilic becoming clearer by the week, giving rise to victories in four of the club’s last five outings.

The most recent of these came in midweek, when a trip to Wales to face Cardiff City ultimately culminated in the day’s visitors emerging on the right side of a 2-1 scoreline.

Star man Ismaila Sarr, meanwhile, was amongst the goals once more, to take his tally to ten direct goal contributions in 14 appearances across the season to date.

Watford, in turn, have climbed into the promotion playoff spots, aware that another three-point haul this weekend could see them close the gameweek sitting as high as 4th.

Standing in the way of the Hornets and victory on Saturday, though, will be a Coventry City outfit in the midst of a solid spell of form of their own.

The Sky Blues’ current position in the Championship standings is not at all reflective of their recent endeavours on the pitch.

Upon casting a quick glance in the direction of the table, Coventry can be seen to be in the thick of the battle against relegation, sitting 20th, just a solitary point clear of the bottom three.

Mark Robins’ troops, though, have actually rattled off wins in four of their last six.

The latest of these arrived on Tuesday, when a solitary Jamie Allen strike proved enough to get the better of promotion-chasing Blackburn Rovers.

Not only that, but Coventry also boast at least two games in hand on every other club in the division bar one.

In turn, though Watford, just, should be considered as favourites heading into Saturday’s action, Coventry ultimately emerging from Vicarage Road with a deserved share of the spoils should not be ruled out by any means.
