Match preview

A Watford outfit fresh off a timely return to winning ways are set to act as hosts, in a Championship meeting with relegation-battling Wigan Athletic on Saturday, March 18th.

Beginning with the former, Watford, prior to the latest midweek round of fixtures, had been in the midst of an alarming stretch of form.

Just a solitary win in nine, a stretch which included a shock defeat at the hands of freefalling Queens Park Rangers, saw the board at Vicarage Road ultimately left with little choice but to send boss Slaven Bilic on his way.

And, after a losing start to his stint in the dugout at Vicarage Road, new headmaster Chris Wilder, on Tuesday, guided his Hornets side to a much-needed triumph.

Watford, in turn, inched back towards the promotion playoff places, albeit in the knowledge that a prolonged stretch of positive form will now be needed to close the six-point gap to the top-six.

Safe to say, though, that Wilder and co. could not ask for a more fitting opponent in their bid to make it two wins on the spin on Saturday afternoon.

Watford are set to play host to a Wigan Athletic outfit currently sitting dead bottom of the Championship table.

The Latics, for their part, have long stood as one of the most off colour sides across the entirety of the English football pyramid.

All told, they have managed just a solitary win in 18, since football’s return on the back of the World Cup break.

Not only that, but three of the club’s last five have culminated in defeat, amid a stretch of just two points secured from 15.

Despite a commendable stalemate with Coventry City last time out, this means that Wigan now sit a full six points from safety, looking increasingly likely for a swift return to League One.

And we at 101 only envision the woes of Maloney and co. being added to ever further this weekend, backing hosts Watford to ultimately emerge on the right side of the result at Vicarage Road.
