Watford vs. Nottingham Forest

Vicarage Road

It's Into The Hornets Nest For Forest

On paper, this is a match that both teams will be looking to win, but a draw may not be a bad result considering the decent run that both sides are enjoying at present.

Watford have won four of their last five and had a hard fought win on Saturday, beating Charlton 3-2 at The Valley. Forest are also on a high, having taken seven points from the last nine available.

Although both sides are still involved in the relegation dogfight, both are showing signs of breaking away. Watford sit two places above us and just one point ahead in the table. A win for either side would be a massive boost, but I'd take a draw right now if it was on offer.

Vital Quotes:

Watford Team News:

Check back for updates later.

Player to watch: Grzegorz Rasiak

The Polish international and former Sheepshagger is currently on a season long loan deal from The Saints. He's bagged 6 in 21 appearances for the Hornets and loves scoring against us.

Nottingham Forest Team News:

News from the Reds' OS, says that Paul Anderson is the only new concern ahead of the game. McCleary is expected to replace the winger, who went off in the 1-1 draw with the Swans at the weekend. Morgan is available for contention again after serving a one match ban and will probably replace Brecks at the back.

Player to watch: Robert Earnshaw

He's paying off his 2.65M fee nicely. 14 goals so far this campaign shows that the midget still knows where the net is.

Match Facts & Stats

In 29 League meetings between the two sides Forest have won 11, drawn 10 and lost 8. Last time out at the City Ground, it ended up with a 3-2 win to the Reds', with goals from Martin, Little Earn and Tyson

i wouldn't under-estimate watford, beat us comfortably 2-0 at their place and i think they'll get at least a draw against you.
