Tip Reasoning

  • Watford have won eight of their last nine Championship games.
  • The Hornets have won their last four outings at Vicarage Road, keeping clean sheets in three.
  • The hosts are 19 places and 34 points superior to the Blues, who have lost and failed to score in three of their last six on the road.

Tough ask for Bowyer’s Blues

Lee Bowyer got his Birmingham City tenure off to a winning start at home to Reading on Wednesday night (2-1), but the Blues look set to struggle this weekend when they head to Vicarage Road to face automatic promotion hopefuls Watford.

Goals in either half from Lukas Jutkiewicz and Harley Dean secured a priceless three points for City in midweek to ease their growing relegation concerns, and there will be definite hope around St Andrews now that the Blues can beat the drop to League One.

It’s asking a lot of Bowyer and his squad to get anything from this Saturday’s clash in Hertfordshire though, with the hosting Hornets in sparkling form.

Xisco’s side crushed Rotherham 1-4 in midweek to make it eight wins from nine and their grip on second place is strengthening. Watford are now three and five points clear of Swansea and Brentford respectively – an advantage they’re unlikely to relinquish here.

Watford have won their last four outings at Vicarage Road and have managed to keep a clean sheet in three of those games, so we’re backing a home win to nil in this one, with Birmingham losing and failing to net in three of their last six league starts on the road.

Watford had to grind out a 0-1 triumph in December’s reverse fixture at St Andrews, but we think it may be a shade easier for them this weekend and we’re going for a 2-0 correct score alongside our win to nil prediction.
