Nottingham Forest v Watford Live Stream : What channel is the game on from the City Ground?



Watford continue their push for promotion with a trip to Nottingham Forest on Wednesday evening.

The Hornets have made a strong start to life back in the Championship, and sit fifth in the current standings. Their 26 points puts them just two behind leaders Norwich.

Vladimir Ivić has guided his side to seven wins in the campaign, including a convincing 4-1 victory over Preston on Saturday.

Domingos Quina, Troy Deeney, Nathaniel Chalobah and Joao Pedro all got their names on the scoresheet at Vicarage Road.

Forest meanwhile have not been so successful. They sit 21st in the Championship, having won just three league games this season.

The clash with Watford comes in the middle of an extremely difficult period for Chris Hughton’s men, who played Bournemouth and Swansea in their last two matches. They lost those games 2-0 and 1-0 respectively, and have games against Reading, Norwich and Brentford in the coming weeks.

But their focus will undoubtedly be on Wednesday evening, where they will be aiming to distance themselves from the relegation zone.

A home victory has been given odds of 13/5, with the visitors currently available at 15/11.

A draw can be backed at 23/10.

The away side have lost just once in their last six matches, winning three of those and scoring 11 goals.

Forest on the other hand have lost four times in their last six encounters, scoring just four goals.

Only the three clubs in the relegation zone have scored fewer goals than Forest this season. Hughton’s men have found the net just nine times in their 14 matches, with Wycombe, Sheffield Wednesday and Derby scoring seven each.

The sides last came together in an FA Cup fourth-round tie four years ago. And it was Watford who edged that clash 1-0, with Odion Ighalo netting the winner.

Ighalo was indeed on target in the pair’s two Championship encounters in the season before. Forest picked up a point in the 2-2 draw at Vicarage Road, with Watford then winning 3-1 at the City Ground.

Lyle Taylor can be backed at 13/2 to get the game’s opening goal on Wednesday, having scored on four occasions this season.

Deeney and Pedro meanwhile have been given odds of 19/4 and 5/1 respectively to score first.
