History of the Watford v Coventry City fixture

Coventry face a trip to Watford at Vicarage Road Stadium on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Sky Blues will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 19 and win only 7 of the 30 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in August 2002, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 5 - 2 thriller, in a League Division One match.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Not a lot has been going right generally for Coventry on their travels as of late, but I can certainly see them gleaning a point from their game against Watford. Score draw
