Our prediction for this Championship match:
After playing out a goalless draw with Sunderland on Tuesday evening, Blackpool will look to put an end to their four-game winless run when they take on Watford in the Championship round 14. The Seasiders are sitting just above the relegation zone, with the team collecting only one point in total from the last four league fixtures. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but all Anderson, Beesley, and Stewart remain in the recovery room.
The Hornets, on the other hand, suffered a 2-1 loss to Swansea in midweek to drop to 9th place in the standings. Watford are eager to regain their spot in top six, and we predict that they will take advantage of Blackpool’s poor form. A man to watch in the away side will be pacey winger Ismaila Sarr, who found the net in Wednesday’s defeat, while all Cleverley, Dele-Bashiru, and Manaj should miss out with injuries.
