Watford Preview – Will the Hornets make it 13 points from 15 at home?

Having been relegated from the Premier League last season, Watford will be hoping for an instant return to the top tier. The Hornets have made a steady start to life back in the Championship, winning four of their opening nine. Overall, the Hertfordshire club have taken 15 points and sit sixth.

After going four games unbeaten, winning two and drawing two, Watford fell to their first defeat in almost a month last weekend. It was close game at Oakwell, but Barnsley nicked a 1-0 win thanks to an early Alex Mowatt goal.

Our betting prediction:
Watford to win to nil

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1422 GMT, Tuesday 3 November)

Both of Watford’s Championship losses this season have been by a goal to nil. After winning four of their opening six, the Hornets are now without a win in three. Nevertheless, can they get back to winning ways in midweek?

Stoke City Preview – Potters to suffer second successive away defeat?

Before last Tuesday’s 2-0 defeat to in-form Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium, Stoke were on an impressive seven-game unbeaten run in all competitions. They are going great guns in the Carabao Cup, beating Blackpool, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Gillingham and Aston Villa to reach the last eight.

After losing in Wales, the Potters hit back with three points at the bet365 Stadium last weekend. James McClean’s first-half effort proved to be enough to give Stoke a 1-0 victory over Rotherham United.
