THE PREDICTION

Watford picked up a comfortable 2-0 win over Huddersfield last time out to keep themselves well within the playoff places. Here they look to make further inroads into the gap between them and the automatic promotion places as they welcome Barnsley to Vicarage Road. The Tykes have proven themselves as a dangerous outfit under Valerien Ismael, but have come up short against the top teams in the division, losing away to Norwich and most recently at home to Swansea. Watford have a squad of much greater depth than Barnsley and with home advantage, plus the amount of quality Xisco Munoz has at his disposal, the Hornets should prove too strong for their opponents in this match.
