Watford News and Form – Can Watford win at Sheffield United?

Watford pulled out three points from nowhere on Sunday. They landed a 2-0 home success over Manchester United, defying the odds big-time in that fixture. That was after a run of only having collected one point from their previous five games. In that run of five games, Watford only managed to score one goal in total. The two wins that Watford have now recorded this season have been by a 2-0 scoreline (the other one was against Norwich). Their success over United on Sunday was their first home win of the campaign.

There have been just 5 goals scored by Watford in their nine away games and four of those were in the first half of matches. It is a W1 D2 L6 record that they have secured on the road. Watford have conceded at an average of over two goals per road game this season. Just one of the Hornets’ away games have made it over 2.5 goals and that’s mostly down to their lack of scoring. They have taken one away clean sheet. Of the ten defeats that Watford have suffered this season have been by a margin of at least two goals. They have shipped at least 2 goals in each of their last three away games.
