Watford vs West Bromwich Albion match preview

Two sides locked on points amid the early weeks of the Championship campaign are set to lock horns at Vicarage Road on Wednesday, September 20th.

The matchup in question will see Watford act as hosts, in a meeting with West Bromwich Albion.

Beginning with the former, Watford, to their credit, have managed to bounce back from an alarming stretch of form over the course of the last few weeks.

After romping to a 4-0 triumph on opening day in the Championship, Valerien Ismael’s troops followed up with a five-game winless streak across all competitions.

A credible 3-3 stalemate at Coventry, though, was built upon by way of a timely return to winning ways last time out.

In their return to action on the back of the international break, Watford welcomed high-flying Birmingham City to Vicarage Road.

And, after the visitors were reduced to ten men late on, the Hornets took full advantage, thanking injury-time strikes on the part of Mileta Rajovic and Ryan Andrews for a 2-0 victory.

Such efforts have seen Wednesday’s hosts climb back into the top half of the table in England’s 2nd tier.

Turning attentions towards the evening’s visitors, West Bromwich Albion, too, have found consistency tough to come by to this point in 2023/24.

Across their six fixtures to date, the Baggies have racked up two wins, two draws, and two defeats.

Most recently, after slipping to a concerning loss at home to Huddersfield Town, Carlos Corberan and co. did at least manage to steady the ship, though.

This came as a trip to Bristol City saw West Brom battle their way to a point in a goalless stalemate.

And yet, their woes in the attacking third remained on full display, the Baggies failing to direct a single shot on target at Ashton Gate.

They sit, as a result, 13th in the Championship, adrift of upcoming hosts Watford by way of goal difference.

So, all of this considered, how do we at 101 envision Wednesday’s action unfolding at Vicarage Road?

Though we view Watford as favourites, an eventual stalemate looks a strong possibility come the full-time whistle in Hertfordshire.
