Recent respective form guides

Watford's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While Hornets have scored 4, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Preston N.E.'s away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. A generous 7 goals have been both scored and conceded in this period.
