Watford and Burnley go head-to-head in a tasty EFL Championship fixture at Vicarage Road this Friday night.

Watford Preview – Can the Hornets move on to seven points?

Watford are one of the favourites for promotion this season, and new manager Rob Edwards has made a steady enough start. After two tricky games, the Hornets have taken four points from a possible six.

Watford kicked off their season with a home game against Sheffield United, who reached the play-offs last term. It was a tight tussle at Vicarage Road, with Joao Pedro netting the only goal of the game.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Watford then held West Bromwich Albion to a 1-1 draw at The Hawthorns on Monday. The match will always be remembered for Ismaila Sarr’s sensational goal from his own half. West Brom were the better team, so the draw was not a bad outcome for Rob Edwards’ men.

This will be another tough test for the Hornets, but can they make home advantage count and fire themselves to the top of the Championship table?

Burnley Preview – Will Kompany’s Clarets remain unbeaten?

Burnley’s six-year stay in the Premier League ended last season, but the Clarets do not plan on being in the Championship for long. Like Watford, the Lancashire side are also among the favourites for promotion.

In Vincent Kompany’s first game in charge, Burnley edged past Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium – Ian Maatsen netted the only goal in that one. They followed that up with a 1-1 home draw with Nathan Jones’ Luton Town at Turf Moor last Saturday.
