Watford Preview – Will the Hornets’ unbeaten run stretch to seven?

After suffering a gut-wrenching relegation from the Premier League, Watford were tipped by many to make an instant return to the top tier by winning the Championship title this season. The Hornets have made a good start, winning seven, drawing six and losing only two of their opening 15.

Vladimir Ivic hit the ground running in Hertfordshire, guiding Watford to four wins from their opening six in the Championship. They have also been in good form lately, winning three and drawing three of six since a shock 1-0 loss at Barnsley in October.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1235 GMT, Friday 4 December)

Last Saturday, Ivic’s boys thumped Preston North End 4-1 at Vicarage Road, which they followed up with a 0-0 draw with Nottingham Forest at the City Ground. Watford are the 21/20 favourites to win this one.

Cardiff City Preview – Can the Bluebirds avoid defeat at Vicarage Road?

Cardiff City have had a mixed bag of results this season. They are the only team in the Championship to have won five, drawn five and lost five of their opening 15 games. The Bluebirds have scored 20 and shipped 13 along the way.

After going three games without a win (one draw, two defeats), Cardiff have secured two massive home wins in a week. City hammered Luton Town 4-0 last Saturday before easing to a 3-0 victory over Huddersfield Town at the Cardiff City Stadium on Tuesday night.
