Match preview

Two sides desperate for a return to winning ways are set to lock horns in a Championship clash at Vicarage Road on Monday, February 20th.

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

Starting with the former, Watford, over the course of the last month, have found results altogether difficult to come by.

All told, the Hornets are winless across their last five, albeit four of which came in the form of draws.

With a full 90 minutes on the clock, Watford actually looked primed for a shock triumph, courtesy of a solitary first-half strike on the part of Joao Pedro.

It therefore proved nothing short of heartbreaking when, five minutes into injury time, Michael Obafemi emerged from the bench to clinch a share of the spoils for hosts Burnley.

Such woes, all told, have seen the Hornets tumble from the thick of the promotion playoff battle to 8th in the Championship table.

And yet, as alluded to above, upcoming opponents West Bromwich Albion will be equally desperate for a bounce-back result on Monday evening.

The Baggies, for their part, have proven frustratingly inconsistent over the course of recent weeks.

After surging from the depths of the bottom three to the top half courtesy of a remarkable nine wins from ten either side of the new year, Carlos Corberan’s men have since followed up with just one victory from their last five across all competitions.

This stretch includes league defeats at the hands of both Burnley and Birmingham, as well a concerning FA Cup exit to Bristol City.

Like Watford, West Brom’s most recent outing also saw them denied at the death, as Blackburn Rovers’ Ben Brereton Diaz struck just minutes from time to cancel out Jayson Molumby’s opener.

The Baggies, as a result, have slipped to 10th in England’s 2nd tier, albeit in the knowledge that a win later today would see them leapfrog their hosts, to close within a point of the top-six.

We at 101, though, view an eventual sharing of the spoils as the most likely outcome upon the full-time whistle bringing a close to proceedings at Vicarage Road.
