Hornets to Back up Weekend Blitz
Everything clicked into place for Watford on Saturday as they plundered six goals past Bristol City and Xisco’s side can back up that effort on Tuesday against a Preston outfit who have lost eight of their 14 starts at Deepdale this season.
Watford had netted just one goal in three matches prior to their exploits at the weekend and their general lack of potency up front this season has undoubtedly harmed their challenge for automatic promotion.
They have managed a poultry seven goals overall on their travels which is certainly a concern for punters going into this week’s away trip at Deepdale, however, the Hornets should be brimming with confidence after dismantling the Robins so easily.
Momentum is key in this division and Watford are attractively priced at odds-against here on the back of their weekend exploits alone, but their form throughout the past few weeks has been decent with four wins gained and just one defeat suffered in seven.
They convincingly accounted for Preston 4-1 in November’s reverse fixture and with the Lilywhites picking up just one point from their last three home starts and losing eight from 14 at Deepdale this term, we’re getting behind the visitors to land the spoils via a 1-2 score-line.
