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

Unbeaten run of 3 matches.
|West Ham Utd.||Undefeated in last 4 away games.|
No win in the 2 most recent games.
