PREDICTION
Both of these teams are struggling for a result right now but there are various factors in Brighton's favour here. Their home form is solid and they are difficult to beat at the Amex, while Watford are beset by absentees through injury and suspensions, so consider the hosts Draw No Bet.

MEMORABLE MEETING
April 2003 saw the two sides face off at the Withdean Stadium in what was a Football League Division 1 fixture (second tier). It would be the Seagulls who were flying high that afternoon as they strolled to a comfortable 4-0 win.
