Watford Preview – Hornets to make it six wins on the spin?

Watford are riding high in second place at present, six points clear of Swansea City, who still have a game in hand. The Hornets have been solid all season, collecting an impressive 22 wins from 38 league games.

They have really kicked on since Xisco Munoz took over from Vladimir Ivic in December. Under their new boss, Watford have won 13 of 18 Championship matches to fire themselves into the top two. Since going three league matches without a win in late January and early February, the Hertfordshire club have won nine of ten.

Our betting prediction:
Watford to win to nil

(odds taken 0935 GMT, Thursday 1 April)

Watford head into this one having won five in a row. Also, no side in the Championship have picked up more home points than the Hornets. Another three points at Vicarage Road this Friday will take them a step closer to the Premier League.

Sheffield Wednesday Preview – Eighth loss in ten for the Owls?

Sheffield Wednesday have had a miserable season up until now. Although they have not been helped by a points deduction, the Owls have been nowhere near good enough. Wednesday are currently second from bottom, six points adrift of safety.

However, Darren Moore finally picked up his first victory as Sheffield Wednesday manager last time out. They were the big underdogs at Oakwell, but the Owls stopped Barnsley’s 12-game unbeaten run with a stunning 2-1 victory. Prior to that, they drew 1-1 with Huddersfield Town at Hillsborough.
