Match Preview | Watford v Albion

Albion players celebrate a goal while wearing home colours

Next up for the Baggies in the Sky Bet Championship is a trip to play-off rivals Watford on Monday night (ko 8pm).

Both teams were denied three points in their most recent fixtures, with Albion conceding a late equaliser at home to Blackburn and the Hornets shipping an injury-time leveller at leaders Burnley. 

Monday's fixture will see West Bromwich Albion reunited with former boss Slaven Bilic, who helped guide the club to Premier League promotion by finishing second in 2019/20. 

Bilic has been in charge at Vicarage Road since September and has Watford fighting for a spot in the top six.

Albion will visit Vicarage Road for the first time since March 2018 on Monday night

Our opponents

There'll be a familiar face in the opposition dugout on Monday night at Vicarage Road.

Slaven Bilic, who won promotion to the Premier League with Albion in 2019/20, is tasked with repeating the same trick at Watford this term.

The Croatian was appointed in late September after Rob Edwards was dismissed and he's kept the Hornets in play-off contention during his time in Hertfordshire. 

They've stuttered recently though, heading into the clash with the Baggies having drawn three on the bounce and without a win in their last five league games.

Watford have plenty of individual quality within their squad and they'll still fancy their chances of making an immediate return to the top flight via the play-off route. 

Their home form is mixed, winning one, losing one and drawing three of their last five games at the Vic. The Hornets have earned seven victories from their 15 matches in front of their own supporters so far this campaign, drawing four and losing four. 

Slaven Bilic will come up against his former club on Monday
