Watford are set to host Wycombe Wanderers in the Hornets’ 34th match of the season. There is only ever going to be one clear favorite in this match, as the Hornets currently sit 3rd, three points off of the automatic promotion places, whereas a valiant, respectable, but ultimately weak-in-comparison-to-the-rest-of-the-league Wycombe squad are stranded at the bottom of the table.

What must be remembered, however, is Wycombe held Watford to a draw in the reverse fixture, and arguably deserved to take all three points.

Watford's last fixture was a controversial 1-0 defeat against Bournemouth, while Wycombe, after impressively beating promotion-rivals Reading, lost to league-leaders Norwich.

Watford are with no new injury concerns, but will be without Nathaniel Chalobah and Joao Pedro due to suspension. Wycombe’s first-choice goalkeeper Ryan Allsop is still sidelined.

Prediction: even though Wycombe have been performing better as of late, it is hard to predict against the hosts here. Pedro’s absence is not going to be a huge blow, as he would need a match on the sidelines in the near future anyway in order to not get completely worn-out from the fixture congestion. Stipe Perica will likely replace him, with there being a chance Andre Gray fills the roll too. Chalobah’s place will be filled by Dan Gosling. Neither of the starter’s suspensions will harm Watford too badly. Both sides will likely line up in 4-3-3s (or close-variations of it). But, at the end of the day, Watford have too much quality, and are likely going to use last match's controversy as motivation to return to winning ways. Plus, Watford rarely fail to win at Vicarage Road.

Score Prediction: Watford 2-0 Wycombe
