Watford prepare to entertain Plymouth Argyle at Vicarage Road Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 13 of the 29 previous games, with the Hornets winning just 11.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Vicarage Road Stadium was just last season, in August 2004, with Watford running out comfortable 3-1 winners in a Championship match.
