Watford Preview – Can Watford take step closer to promotion?

Having won six of their last seven matches in the Championship, Watford will be in confident mood ahead of their Friday night clash against play-off hopefuls, Reading, as the hosts look to take another step towards a return to the Premier League.

Although they trail the runaway Championship leaders, Norwich City, by a margin of eight points, Watford hold a comfortable nine-point cushion over 3rd placed Brentford and another win here against The Royals would see The Hornets open this lead to a healthy 12-point margin.

Watford have been on fire of late at Vicarage Road too as they’ve won their last six matches on the trot which has produced 15 goals for the hosts and conceding just 1 goal in reply.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Reading Preview – Can Reading consolidate?

Reading will be looking to consolidate their current play-off spot on Friday night at Vicarage Road as The Royals sit in 6th place but they have Bournemouth breathing down their necks as The Cherries are just one point behind them.

The visitors have suffered just one defeat out of their last eight matches overall which came in the shape of a slightly surprising 2-1 loss away at Birmingham City but wins against Rotherham United, Blackburn Rovers, Sheffield Wednesday and Derby County have kept Reading in the frame for a top six finish.

However, Reading look to have their work cut out if they’re to grab all three points at Watford as The Royals have won just three of their last 11 matches on their travels.
