Watford are looking to get back to winning ways after losing their first game in five as they face Wycombe Wanderers at Vicarage Road on Wednesday night. Their opponents are nailed to the bottom of the Championship, with 11 points from safety.
Most recently, Watford lost to AFC Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium where amongst the scraps and arguing, Arnaut Danjuma scored the only goal of game.
A beautiful through ball from Steve Cook was misjudged by the Watford defence and Danjuma was able to run around the back to stroke home into the bottom corner.
Just before the final whistle, Jack Wilshere and Joao Pedro both received red cards following a scrap on the halfway line.
On Wednesday night, league leaders Norwich City extended their reign at the top to 10 points after beating strugglers, Wycombe.
Teemu Pukki opened the scoring with a simple finish, gaining a deflection on the way around David Stockdale as the Finnish scored his 18th league goal so far this season.
In the 87th minute, Adam Idah doubled the Canaries’ lead to confirm all three points. The youngster tapped in from three yards out following a scramble in the penalty box after a corner.
Goalkeeper Ben Foster remains out with a broken finger.
Christian Kabasele carries a knee injury but could return soon.
With more of a long-term injury, Troy Deeney is out with an Achilles tendon injury.
