History of the Watford v Sheffield Wednesday fixture

Watford are ready to welcome Sheffield Wednesday to Vicarage Road Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Hornets are clearly on top, having won 9 and lost only 3 of the 15 games.

The previous match played between the two at Vicarage Road Stadium was more than three years back, in October 2002, the Hornets carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a League Division One match.
