Match preview

A Watford outfit fresh off a return to winning ways will act as hosts on Monday, December 26th, in a Championship meeting with Millwall at Vicarage Road.

The Hornets are currently in the thick of the promotion playoff battle, sitting 4th, seven points adrift of Sheffield United in the final automatic promotion berth.

Slaven Bilic’s troops will head into the Boxing Day slate of fixtures amid a solid spell of recent form, which has seen them rack up two wins and two draws from their last four.

The latest, last weekend, saw star hitman Joao Pedro prove the hero.

The 21-year-old – hotly tipped for a move to the Premier League with Newcastle earlier in the year – has now found the net four times in his last four appearances.

Hopeful of holding both Watford and Pedro firmly at bay this coming Monday, though, will be a Millwall side desperate for a return to winning ways.

The Lions, at one point in the lead-up to the World Cup break, had established themselves as one of the English 2nd tier’s most in-form sides.

Recent weeks, however, have proven altogether more trying.

All told, Gary Rowett and co. have now notched just a solitary win from their last six attempts.

Last time out, meanwhile, Millwall were held to an altogether disappointing stalemate by a Wigan Athletic outfit battling against relegation as things stand.

After Will Keane put Wigan in front at The Den, Zian Flemming ensured that the spoils would ultimately be shared courtesy of his 9th goal of what is proving to be a stellar individual campaign late in the first-half.

The Lions, in turn, have slipped to the depths of mid-table, as we prepare to enter the 2nd half of the term in the Championship.

And we at 101 only envision the situation continuing to worsen for Monday’s visitors to Vicarage Road, backing hosts Watford to emerge with all three points come the full-time whistle in the festive showdown.
