History of the Watford v Norwich City fixture

Watford prepare to entertain Norwich City at Vicarage Road Stadium on Tuesday evening, and hold the advantage on previous meetings between the two. Of the 42 games played, Hornets have recorded 14 wins, and Norwich City have come away with 11 victories.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Vicarage Road Stadium was just last season, in April 2004, with Norwich City inflicting a narrow 1-2 defeat upon the Hornets in a League Division One match.

Recent respective form guides

Watford are not in the best of form at home, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats in their last six. The goals for column just outweighs the goals against over this period, 8 to 6.

The away form of Norwich City is pretty dire, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Canaries have hit 8 goals, 17 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Watford are just outside the promotion places, in 3rd, having taken 14 points from 7 games. Norwich City are currently lying in 19th place in Coca Cola Championship having mustered a points tally of 6 from their 7 matches played.

FootyMad's prediction ...

The current home form displayed by Watford is obviously none too clever, but, with the current standing of Norwich City, I firmly believe this match can only produce a victory for the Hornets. Home Win
