          Watford vs Hull Prediction, Tips & Stats

          Hull City will be aiming to boost their hopes of securing a spot in the Championship playoffs when they travel to Vicarage Road to take on Watford on Saturday afternoon.

          Watford are currently sitting in 15th position in the Championship table and are all but guaranteed safety. With just three games left in the season, the hornets are eight points above the drop and a point this weekend would mathematically confirm their safety.

          Tom Cleverley’s side come into this weekend on the back of a bad run of form which has seen them go five games without a win in the league. However this form may be deceiving as the Hornets have faced three of the top four sides in the league during this period.

          Last time out, Watford were unlucky to not take anything away from an enthralling game against promotion-chasing Southampton. The Saints had the perfect start when Will Smallbone headed home inside the first minute, and extended their lead soon after when Ché Adams capitalised on a poor clearance.

          The Hornets grabbed a goal back before the breakthrough Ryan Porteous, and drew level when substitute Ismaël Koné coolly finished. However, there was heartbreak when Flynn Downes converted from a corner at the death, condemning Watford to a first defeat under Tom Cleverley.

          Hull City are currently occupying the final playoff spot in the Championship, however Coventry, middlesbrough and Preston are hot on their heels, being just two points behind the Tigers.

          The Tigers come into this weekend on the back of a three game unbeaten run, which has seen them record victories over QPR and Cardiff. The Tigers have been in good goal scoring form, having scored eight goals in their past three league games.

          The first meeting between these two sides came in 1960 in division three, a game which finished 2-2. In total, these two sides have faced each other on 47 occasions, with Hull narrowly having a better record having won 18 meetings. Watford have won 13 games and there have been 16 draws.

          Watford recorded a narrow 2-1 victory when these sides met each other earlier on in the campaign. Wesley Hoedt's stunning long-range strike ensured that Watford took all three points away from the game in a 2-1 victory. The Hornets captain nicked possession off Liam Delap just inside Hull's half before executing a perfect lob over Ryan Allsop after 74 minutes.

          This game is hard to call and these sides cannot be separated at the books as they are currently both priced @ 8/5 to win, whilst a draw is priced @ 5/2.

          We are backing Hull to win and under 2.5 goals in the game because this is a fixture which often results in tight cagey affairs. Only one of the last six meetings between the two clubs has finished with over two goals.

          We believe that Hull will be the team to beat as they have the far superior form heading into this match and will be playing at full intensity given that a place in the playoffs is at stake for them.

          Watford Team News

          Watford have not reported any new injury concerns ahead of this weekend’s match. Tom Cleverly is likely to make some changes to the side which recorded a narrow defeat against Southampton last time out.
