History of the Watford v Charlton Athletic fixture

Charlton Ath. face a trip to Watford at Vicarage Road Stadium at tea-time on Saturday, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 28 games played, Addicks have recorded 6 wins, and Watford have come away with 11 victories.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in March 2007, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a Premiership match.

Recent respective form guides

Watford's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Hornets have scored 8, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Charlton Ath.'s away form is none too clever either, collecting 2 wins and 3 draws from the last six. The Addicks's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 10 goals for and 8 against.

Watford are just outside the promotion places, in 3rd, having taken 47 points from 27 games. Charlton Ath.'s total of 43 points from their 27 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Coca-Cola Championship.

A creditable return from recent away games for Addicks could well see them head back from Vicarage Road Stadium with a share of the spoils, think the FootyMad panel. Score draw
