Our prediction for this Championship match:
There will be fireworks when Watford and Blackburn Rovers square off against each other at Vicarage Road in the Championship derby. Both sides are eyeing a spot in the playoffs, and they will surely adopt attack-minded approaches in Saturday’s encounter. The Hornets dropped a two-goal advantage in a 2-2 draw with Reading, but given their attacking potential, we are positive that the hosts will find the net in round 31.
January signing Britt Assombalonga could make his full Watford debut against Blackburn, while Joao Pedro has overcome his injury. The Riversiders, on the other hand, aim to regain their spot in top six, but given their poor away record, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from the match. Sam Gallagher is pushing for a start, whereas all Ayala, Wharton, Mola, Hyam, Brittain, and Barnes should miss out with injuries.
