There's no pressure on Watford

Watford are enjoying one of those seasons when there is not a lot going wrong for them. It has been even more remarkable being their first season back in the top flight for a few years and with a new manager. They deserve all the headlines they have had and more as they are a club that have flourished in the league and might even have their eyes set on the FA Cup now.

The Hornets are in the enviable position of now considering how best to attack the last few league games to try and win a place in Europe, while also thinking of finding another route there via the FA Cup. The league is so tight that they only have eight points more than the Cherries but that is the difference between a comfortable season and one where a team is looking over its shoulder at other team's results. Even if Watford lose this game they are not likely to struggle to reach the magical 40 point mark and so it is the Cherries that are playing under pressure in this fixture.
Watford have shown great team spirit and we need to see
AFCB come together to rise to the challenge this weekend.
It is not that Watford have not had some games where they have struggled, but they have bounced back well from defeats and kept the points turning over against some in form sides. They have a good record against the Cherries especially at Vicarage Road and keeping a clean sheet against them will be a very difficult task, but a challenge that AFCB have to try and get through.

While there have not been many high scoring games between these two sides there was a humiliating 6-1 defeat in AFCB's first season back in the Championship and it is fair to say that Watford fans are likely to be hoping for similar things in this match with Deeney a figurehead of mayhem for the Cherries in the past. He is the type of player that any side would be happy to have among their ranks as he battles and contests every last scrap and while he has not scored so many goals this season he has been the chief contributor of Ighalo's haul of goals.

Congratulations Charlie!
Charlie Daniels has signed a new three-and a-half year contract with the club. Meanwhile the fixture with Spurs has been move to 20 March at 4pm!
