Preston meanwhile sit 15th after a difficult start to the campaign. Alex Neil’s outfit have won five of their league games, drawing one and losing the other seven.
Goals haven’t been in short supply this season, but they come up against a Watford side who boast one of the best defensive records in the league.
Moreover, the Lilywhites go into the game with just two victories from their last six matches. They’ve lost the other four, including Tuesday evening’s 3-0 home defeat to Blackburn.
More worryingly again is Watford’s current form. The Hornets are now unbeaten in their last four, with two wins and two draws.
One such draw was Wednesday’s goalless stalemate at third-placed Bristol City.
However, a win for the visitors on Saturday could see them move into the top ten, such is the competitive nature of this season’s Championship.
A home victory could push Ivić’s men into the top three.
Watford are currently evens to win the game, with the travelling side available at 18/5.
A draw can be backed at 12/5.
Attacking talents Joao Pedro and Ismaila Sarr will undoubtedly be the ones to watch come kick-off. They have four and three goals for the season respectively.
But they find themselves behind Preston’s Scott Sinclair in the standings. The former Celtic man has five for the campaign, and will be looking to extend that tally on Saturday afternoon.
Pedro has been given odds of 19/4 to score the game’s opening goal, with Sarr available at 7/1.
Sinclair can be backed at 10/1 to score first.
A home win and both teams to score is currently 10/3, with an away win and both teams to score available at 8/1.
