Watford face a trip to Scunthorpe United at Glanford Park Stadium on Monday afternoon, having the edge over their hosts in previous meetings. The visitors have won 5 of the 11 previous games, with the hosts winning just 2.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in February 2010, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a Championship match.
