History of the Watford v West Ham United fixture

Watford prepare to entertain West Ham United at Vicarage Road Stadium at lunchtime on Sunday, looking to improve on a dire past record against their opponents. It does not make pleasant reading, winning 26.67 of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Vicarage Road Stadium was just last season, in November 2003, when they played out a goalless draw in a League Division One match.

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 5, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

West Ham Utd.'s away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occassions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. A generous 8 goals have been both scored and conceded in this period.

Watford find themselves struggling down in 16th position in the league having picked up 52 points from their 45 matches. West Ham Utd.'s total of 70 points from their 45 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Coca-Cola Championship.
