Watford Keep Feel-Good Factor

Watford v Stoke: Watford Keep Feel-Good Factor

Two teams with similar profiles but lower expectations mean Watford have plenty to cheer about.

Only six points separate Watford and Stoke in the league but their expectations are poles apart.

Watford fans would happily have settled for 17th place at the start of the season where as Stoke’s acquisition drive has raised expectations to a top-half finish.

The reality is not much separate the sides. They have a similar goal difference fuelled by not scoring but not letting many in either.

That brings us back to expectations and this is where Stoke are struggling. They suffered a poor defeat at home to Southampton last week and are less than the sum of their parts at the moment.

Watford meanwhile are walking on air. Their safety is virtually assured and they have a cup semi-final to look forward to. Cheered on by rapturous home support they look big at 6/4 (William Hill) to win at Vicarage Road this weekend.
