Two sides whose seasons have not gone according to plan meet at Vicarage Road on Monday as Watford face Stoke City in the Championship.
Watford currently sit 13th in the Championship with fifteen wins, fifteen draws and fifteen losses from forty-five games this season.
This campaign has been an unbridled disappointment for The Hornets who've been nothing more than a mid-table side throughout.
They entered the season as title favourites and started the campaign in a fashion suggesting they were deserving of that tag, but their form quickly tailed off and as such they spent the majority of the season trying to claw their way back into the top six.
They were wholly unsuccessful, however, despite a number of managerial changes and they enter this game in poor form having won one, drawn two and lost two of their last five matches.
Their most recent game was a 2-2 draw against Sunderland, a result that means Watford are now three games without a win.
Their form at home is slightly better having won two, drawn one and lost two of their last five games on home soil, but it's still nothing ground shaking.
Watford need a massive rebuild over the summer in order to contest for promotion next season and whether they can astutely manage such an overhaul remains to be seen. The mood and the attendance will not be great at Vicarage Road on Monday and it's not a great surprise.
Stoke City currently sit 16th in the Championship with fourteen wins, eleven draws and twenty losses from forty-five games this season.
The Potters have also had a hugely underwhelming season having failed to get out of the bottom half of the table for almost the whole season.
They started the season abysmally and parted ways with manager Michael O'Neill before hiring then Sunderland manager Alex Neil, and bar a good spell of form in March/April he hasn't done much to notably improve the side.
They enter this game in poor form having failed to win any of their last six matches while losing three of their last four.
Their form away from home is much better, however, with The Potters now unbeaten in their last six on the road while winning two of their last five.
Stoke were battered 0-4 by Watford back in October so they'll desperately want to rectify that.
Similar to their opponents, Stoke need a big rebuild over the summer if they are to contest for promotion next time out but there doubts over whether Alex Neil is the man for the job.
For our Watford vs. Stoke prediction, we're going for a 2-2 draw.
