Watford Preview – Can Hornets win three on trot?

Recent back-to-back wins against Bristol City 6-0 and a 1-0 win away from home at Preston NE have maintained Watford’s position in the top four of the Championship but the hosts know they could draw level on points with 2nd placed Brentford with a win over Derby County on Friday night.

Recent results overall have been more encouraging for Watford who have suffered just one defeat from their last eight matches which has in turn helped re-ignite The Hornets’ push for automatic promotion, winning five of these eight matches too.

Watford possess a strong looking record at home of 11-2-2 30/11 which includes winning four of their last five matches at Vicarage Road with wins against Norwich City, Huddersfield Town, Barnsley and Bristol City.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Derby County Preview – Can Derby continue revival?

Although Derby County suffered a heavy 3-0 defeat away from home at Rotherham United recently, Wayne Rooney’s side have since bounced back in impressive fashion by collecting back-to-back wins over Middlesbrough and Wycombe Wanderers which has lifted The Rams up into a more respectable 17th place in the Championship table.

Indeed, the east midlands club have now won five of their last six matches as Rooney’s tenure starts to gain momentum and this includes an earlier 1-0 win away from home at QPR, but their revival is expected to come under scrutiny away at Watford on Friday night.

Results have certainly picked up away from home under Rooney but they could come off second-best against a motivated Watford outfit on Friday night.
