Paul Lambert enjoyed the best of starts to his reign as Stoke City boss with his new charges enjoying a 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town at the Bet365 Stadium and the Potters manager will be confident that a second consecutive win will come his way when Watford head to town this evening. The weekend win over the Terriers put to an end a dismal run which saw the Potters manage just a single point from their previous four Premier League outings and suffer a fourth-round exit from the FA Cup at the hands of League Two side Coventry City. Spirits will certainly have been lifted somewhat following the weekend victory and the hosts will be confident of collecting all three points against a Watford side which were also dumped out of the FA Cup last time out and which have won just once in their last ten Premier League outings.
Indeed while the Potters have been far from convincing this season, we fancy their chances of giving Lambert a second win on the bounce tonight. Watford have been a mixed bag away from the comforts of Vicarage Road this term, however they are very much win or bust on the road with just a single draw away from home. Indeed their last five away games have ended in defeat for the Hornets with nine goals conceded and just two scored in reply. This is an excellent opportunity for the Potters to build up a head of steam as they look to haul themselves out of the bottom three in the Premier League table and while this won’t be a pretty match to watch, we expect the hosts to come out on top and boost their chances of escaping the drop by collecting all three points against Watford at the Bet365 Stadium tonight.
