          Watford vs Blackburn Prediction, Tips & Stats

          Watford will welcome Blackburn Rovers to Vicarage Road this weekend as seventh meets with fifth in a race for the playoffs with just one point keeping these two apart in this unpredictable top six race.

          As Burnley and Sheffield United began to run away with the league's top two automatic promotion spots many month ago, it has left the likes of Watford and Blackburn to scrap it out just below them. In fact, Rovers have moved from third down to seventh just inside two weeks because of results going against them. Last time out, they drew 0-0 with Wigan Athletic at Ewood Park in Shaun Maloney's debut as their manager.

          It does see them sit in seventh right now and with barely anything to shout about in recent weeks other than a win in the FA Cup fourth round replay over Birmingham City. In fact, by losing 4-0 to Rotherham United earlier in the year and losing to Sunderland and Middlesbrough since Christmas as well, it does mean Rovers have just a 1-0 win over Cardiff City to boast about.

          As for Watford, they are one clear but having played one game extra. Nevertheless, they are one of the few clubs that have been able to cling onto a playoffs spot for basically the entire season.

          Blackburn team news

          Blackburn have had a pretty hectic schedule with their FA Cup clashes against Birmingham and this could force some changes to the side. Thomas, Bradley Dack and Ben Brereton Diaz are all expected in the attacking midfield ranks, as Vale starts up top. Tyler Morton has now returned and could feature here, while Tyrhys Dolan missed the draw with Wigan and could now feature here. Sam Gallagher is set to start up top once more as well, with Sammie Szmodics set to play in midfield at some stage. There are no suspensions for Blackburn to deal with in this game.

          Watford team news

          Watford still have an incredible amount of injuries and no side in the Championship has been hit more than them. Tom Dele-Bashiru and Joa Ferreira are still out until March, while Francisco Sierralta is out until June. Christian Kabasele is also out of action in this one until the end of this month, but Joao Pedro should return here with Kortney Hause. Dan Gosling is still out, as is Tom Cleverley and Imran Louza. Davis and Araujo likely play up top now, as Craig Cathcart and Porteous stay in the back with Leandro Bacuna and Hamza Choudhury in the defensive midfield spots. Ismael Kone is back now as well
