Match preview

A Watford outfit desperate for a return to winning ways amid the club’s ongoing pursuit of a promotion playoff berth are set to act as hosts, in a Championship meeting with Preston North End on Saturday, March 4th.

The Hornets, for their part, have found three-point hauls altogether difficult to come by of late.

In fact, dating back to mid-January, Slaven Bilic’s troops have notched just a solitary victory from their last seven attempts.

They did appear to have steadied the ship early last week, in emerging on the right side of a five-goal thriller with West Bromwich Albion at Vicarage Road.

Watford, in turn, find themselves on the outside looking in at the playoff battle, now four points adrift of sixth-placed Luton Town, and running out of time to close the gap.

Safe to say, then, that Bilic and co. will have their sights firmly set on a bounce-back result on Saturday afternoon.

Such a result, though, is far from a guarantee up against a Preston North End outfit to have proven themselves an altogether tough nut to crack of late.

The Lilywhites, all told, have staved off defeat in each of their last four outings.

This stretch includes a credible share of the spoils up against promotion-chasing Luton Town, and, most recently, another draw with in-form Coventry City.

Such efforts mark a timely return to form on the part of Ryan Lowe’s troops, who, previously, had slipped to four defeats from five across all competitions.

Preston, in turn, find themselves back in mid-table, with little to play for over the remaining months of the campaign.

A 2nd win in three this weekend, though, would see the Lilywhites climb to within just a solitary point of their upcoming hosts at Vicarage Road.

We at 101, in truth, view as much as unlikely, but do not be at all surprised if Preston do manage to frustrate Watford, en route to emerging from proceedings with another hard-fought share of the spoils.
