THE PREDICTION

Watford’s 2-1 victory over Derby at the weekend was the Hornets’ third in succession and leaves them outside of the bottom two on goal difference only. Knowing how close they are to breaking into the top two, Watford should have all the motivation they need to beat a struggling Blackburn. Tony Mowbray’s side have lost their last four Championship matches and with a lengthy injury list, the Lancashire outfit look set to struggle in this contest despite holding home advantage. Watford boast significant strength in depth to cope with the fast turnaround of fixtures and the visitors draw no bet may prove a shrewd play here.
