Recent respective form guides

Watford's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Hornets have scored 6, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Leeds Utd.'s away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. Whites have conceded 6 goals in these games, and only hit 3 in reply.

Watford are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 45 points from 41 matches. Leeds Utd.'s 54 points from 41 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 12th position.
