Keepmoat Stadium, February 26, 3pm
LAST season, a youthful Watford started brilliantly only to spiral down the table when a wafer thin squad was exposed.
This season, a youthful Watford started brilliantly – but this time might have enough for a rather comfortable campaign.
Given their on-going financial strife, credit must go to Malky Mackay and co for making Watford competitive at the right end of the table.
But no wins in seven prior to Tuesday night perhaps marks this season’s downturn.
YOUNG striker Marvin Sordell has managed to make partner in crime Danny Graham even more lethal.
The 20-year-old has forged the Championship’s most productive strike partnership with Graham, with the duo netting more than 30 times this season.
Watford has proved a fertile breeding ground for young talent in recent years, and skilful local lad Sordell is the latest to shine.
Rovers know all about the pacy and alert striker after he came off the bench to net a brace against them earlier in the season.
