Match preview

Two sides in search of a bounce-back result are set to lock horns in a Championship clash at Vicarage Road on Tuesday, November 8th.

The matchup in question will see promotion-chasing Watford play host to mid-table Reading.

Beginning with the former Watford, after a stellar stretch of recent form under the watch of new boss Slaven Bilic, were brought crashing back down to earth last time out.

This came upon the Hornets welcoming relegation-battling Coventry City to Vicarage Road.

Fresh off a trio of successive victories, and with their sights firmly set on a place back in the top-six, Bilic and co. headed into proceedings with sights firmly set on another three-point haul.

When all was said and done, however, Watford emerged on the wrong side of a 1-0 scoreline, owing to Viktor Gyokeres’ winner early in the 2nd-half.

The Hertfordshire-based outfit, as a result, remain on the outside looking in at the promotion playoff places.

All associated with Tuesday’s hosts, though, will no doubt be confident in their chances of securing a swift return to winning ways.

This comes with with upcoming opponents Reading have looked less than impressive of late.

After so recently establishing themselves in the thick of the promotion battle, recent weeks have seen the Royals’ form fall off in a major, major way.

All told, dating back to the beginning of last month, Paul Ince’s troops have secured just a solitary three-point haul from eight attempts.

This past Saturday, meanwhile, saw Reading put to the sword for the 2nd time in three gameweeks, as Lucas Joao’s 2nd-half spot-kick ultimately proved to be little more than a consolation in a meeting with Preston North End at the Madejski.

The Royals, as a result, have slipped to the depths of 12th in the table, in the knowledge that, sitting just six points clear of the bottom three, they can nary afford another defeat next time out.

We at 101, though, are nevertheless backing precisely that to come to fruition on Tuesday night, with Watford in line to clinch a bounce-back result at the expense of Paul Ince’s struggling visitors.
