Watford Preview – Hornets to keep up 100% winning home record?

Vladimir Ivic has settled in at Vicarage Road with aplomb. The former Maccabi Tel Aviv boss has guided Watford to three wins from five Championship matches. The Hornets have seen off Middlesbrough, Luton Town and Derby County, all by a 1-0 scoreline.

After suffering their first loss of the season before the international break, Watford struck back with a crucial victory last weekend. The Hertfordshire club left Pride Park with a 1-0 win, with the excellent Joao Pedro scoring the only goal of the game in the 76th minute.

Our betting prediction:
Watford to be winning at half time & full time

(odds taken 1659 GMT, Tuesday 20 October)

Having taken ten points from a possible 15, Watford are sitting pretty in fifth spot ahead of this round of fixtures. Ivic’s side were one of the Championship title favourites before a ball was kicked, and another three points on Wednesday will signal a very good start to their campaign.

Blackburn Rovers Preview – Winless run to stretch to three for Mowbray’s men?

Tony Mowbray’s Blackburn Rovers have had a mixed bag of results at the start of this season. After narrowly losing at Bournemouth on the opening weekend, the Blue and Whites picked up two huge wins. They thumped Wycombe Wanderers 5-0 at Ewood Park before hammering Derby 4-0 at Pride Park.

Since scoring nine in two games, Blackburn have taken one point from a possible six and drawn two blanks. Before the international break, Mowbray’s men were held to a 0-0 draw by Cardiff City at Ewood Park. Then last time out, Rovers were beaten 1-0 at home by Nottingham Forest, who had taken zero points from their opening four.
