After Watford were consigned to another defeat at the weekend, the EFL Championship trapdoor now seems ready to collect them and if they fail to break their streak of disastrous home results this weekend, then relegation will be just around the corner.

While relegation is something that Brentford have all but managed to avoid and with Christian Eriksen adding a fresh impetus to the team, there is now a 12-point cushion between themselves and Burnley in 18th.

Brentford Win

After now suffering a ninth successive league loss at home, there is very little to suggest that Watford break their unwanted chain on Saturday, and this is something that I have considered when looking at the biggest betting sites online.

While when looking at those very websites and the form that Brentford currently find themselves in right now, it is very difficult to look past an away win being recorded on Saturday afternoon.

Which will only mean more misery for Roy Hodgson and his men, as the Hornets’ struggle continues to worsen by the week. However, there could be plenty of joy for you and if you back Brentford at odds of 8/5 (Coral) , you can join me in the celebrations if they win.

Watford Form, squad news, opinion

Nine home outings at Vicarage Road, nine defeats. A disaster in terms of home performance and one that will have Watford fans looking at the fixture list between now and the final day of the season.

Because if it was up to them, they would rather play each of their remaining games on the road and if that was the case, then maybe their plight towards the bottom would not be such a terrible one.

While terrible is exactly what Watford were at the weekend and after shipping three unanswered goals at the weekend to Leeds, it only served to put more room between themselves and safety from Premier League relegation.

A gap that sees the Hornets now six points behind 17th placed Everton and with Roy Hodgson’s men also having played a game more than the Toffees, they are beginning to look in dire straits.

Which means with Everton having the weekend off, Watford cannot spurn another opportunity to add points to their tally and if they do, it will only make things even more difficult at the foot of the table.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the visit of Brentford, there are no new injury concerns for manager Roy Hodgson to deal with and this means that only Nicolas N’Koulou is absent this weekend.

Brentford Form, squad news, opinion

Four wins from their last six league outings, 12 points from the last 18 on offer and a run of results which surely means that Brentford will be afforded a second season of Premier League action from July.

Something that has been richly deserved in the past month or so and although the focus will largely be on Christian Eriksen, it would be unfair to heap praise on the Danish international alone.

If only because the presence of Eriksen has seemingly lifted the whole team up a level - a level that they were not operating at during the first two months of 2022 and with such a bad run of form being then recorded, a relegation battle loomed on the horizon.

However, those fears have now been allayed and after their stunning win over Chelsea the week before, they then claimed the scalp of more London opposition in the shape of West Ham.

A 2-0 home win which saw the Bees take full advantage of the Hammers’ lethargy and with Ivan Toney also finding his goalscoring form at just the right time, his contribution to Brentford’s survival bid should not be overlooked either.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the trip to Watford, there is currently a clean bill of health for manager Thomas Frank to deal with and this means Brentford will be at full strength this weekend.

History

When it comes to the history of these two sides, it is not quite a London derby, but the rivalry is still quite an interesting one and in terms of the previous meetings, there has been little to split the two sides in the past.

In terms of their overall head-to-head record, Watford have won on 26 occasions, Brentford 22 and there have been 26 draws.

About the Venue

Vicarage Road opened in 1922 and holds up to 21,577 supporters.

If a home stadium is meant to help lead a team to victory, that has certainly not been the case at Vicarage Road this season and with the Hornets losing each of their last nine matches on familiar ground, they are getting more joy on the road as of late.

While when it comes to Vicarage Road, it is one of the smaller grounds within the Premier League and if Roy Hodgson’s men keep up their current home form, it will soon be one of the bigger grounds within the EFL Championship.

Conclusion

When it comes to the Premier League outright odds for relegation, Watford now look a near certainty for the drop and although it is likely to be a winning bet, there would be very little in the way of return.

While when it comes to a return, Brentford supporters may start to believe that a top-ten finish is not out of the question and if their team can win at Vicarage Road on Saturday, it will only boost their late bid to move into the top half.
