Two of the top six in the Sky Bet Championship will go head to head on Tuesday night as Brentford look to extend their unbeaten run against Watford. The Bees beat Nottingham Forest yesterday, Saturday 12 December, as their run without loss increased to 11 matches. They have won five of those games, four of the last six and three in a row away from home.
Watford are Brentford's next opponents as The Bees head to Vicarage Road on Tuesday, 15 December. Watford sit fourth in the table after consecutive wins, including one at Birmingham City yesterday. They are two places and two points ahead of Brentford and The Bees will climb above them with a win.
Watford have won three of their last six games and lost only one of them, at home to Cardiff City. That defeat to Cardiff is the only game Watford have lost at home this season. They have won seven of nine and have the best home record in the division. Brentford's 17 points from nine away from home is the second best away record.
Watford are back in the second tier after five seasons in the Premier League. They were promoted in 2015, finishing second, and mostly survived comfortably, reaching an FA Cup Final in 2019, until last season. They finished next to bottom in the top flight last term to drop back to the Championship.
The match kicks-off at 8pm on Tuesday. There will be Watford supporters present but current regulations do not allow Brentford fans to attend. It will, however, be available live on Sky Sports. As per Club communication, those that froze their Season Tickets will be able to watch on iFollow Brentford. See more here.
