Watford News and Form – Can Watford beat Wolves?

The Hornets secured a great 3-0 home win over Aston Villa on the weekend. They were comfortable even with 10-men for the last 20 minutes or so. That was another big points haul and safety is looking like a far more realistic target at the moment than it was just in the middle of December. Watford are W2 D1 in their last three games, both wins coming on home soil. Those wins, against Man Utd and Villa, were both with a clean sheet and have moved to Watford on to a W2 D4 L4 home record this season.

Five of those have been in their last two. Both teams have scored in just one of Watford’s last six league games home and away. In total, they have earned a clean sheet in half of their home games, so haven’t been defensively terrible. It’s momentum in front of goal that they need.
