Ahead of Saturday’s game at Vicarage Road, Seat Pitch, in partnership with KickOff.co.uk, brings you an exclusive statistical preview of Watford v Nottingham Forest…

After The Week That Was, Nottingham Forest head down the M1 to Watford looking to pick up another away point or three following the 0-0 with Brighton.

Simon Cox wasn’t risked last week but could make the squad on Saturday after his miraculous recovery from a foot injury. Sam Hutchinson and Jermaine Jenas are back in training but are unlikely to be in the 18.

Watford are likely to be without striker Fernando Forestieri, who has a hamstring problem, while Lloyd Doyley (calf) and Dale Bennett (back) are continuing their rehab programmes after injury.

John Eustace, Jonathan Bond and Nyron Nosworthy have all been in training this week after injuries.

Odds look pretty even with Watford at 2.25 with Ladbrokes, Forest at 3.2 with Bet365 and the draw at 3.4 with Sky Bet.

Troy Deeney and Matej Vydra are both favourites to be first goalscorer at 6.5 with William Hill while Billy Sharp, Dexter Blackstock and Simon Cox are all at 8, also with William Hill.

A 1-1 draw is 7 with Ladbrokes while Forest winning 1-0 or 2-1 is 11 with Bet365. An outside bet for 3-0 to Forest is 34 with Sky Bet.
