History of the Watford v Coventry City fixture

Watford prepare to entertain Coventry City at Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Hornets are clearly on top, having won 19 and lost only 7 of the 32 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Vicarage Road was just last season, in October 2003, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a League Division One match.
