Watford Preview – Can the Hornets secure a rare win on the road?

Since taking over from Vladimir Ivic in December, Xisco Munoz has guided Watford to three wins from four Championship matches. The Hornets have beaten Norwich City, Huddersfield Town and Barnsley in recent weeks.

After taking nine points from a possible 12, Watford have moved up to fourth in the table, just three points adrift of second-place Swansea City. The Hornets have won back-to-back league games since losing at Manchester United in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup.

Watford have been exceptional at home this season, winning ten of their opening 13 Championship matches at Vicarage Road. However, away from home, the Hertfordshire club have taken a mere 11 points from 11 games, picking up just two wins. Can they put their poor away form to bed and claim a crucial three points on their travels this Friday night?


Stoke City vs Watford Betting Advice

Back in November at Vicarage Road, these two teams were involved in a five-goal thriller. Stoke took an early lead, though Watford were 2-1 up on the hour. Nick Powell made it 2-2 with nine minutes to go, but Ismaila Sarr had the last laugh in injury time. That was the Hornets’ first victory over the Potters for five years.
