Watford prepare to entertain Gillingham at Vicarage Road Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Hornets are clearly on top, having won 23 and lost only 8 of the 42 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Vicarage Road Stadium was just last season, in August 2003, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a League Division One match.
