Watford v Rotherham United - Sky Bet Championship
Watford meet Rotherham at the weekend.

Watford host Rotherham United at the Vicarage Road Stadium in the EFL Championship on Saturday (January 21), looking to make it three wins in a row.

With 43 points from 27 games, the Hornets are third in the standings and looking set to secure a place in the promotion playoffs. Rob Edwards was given the boot in September when the side was languishing in tenth place, with Slaven Bilic taking charge on the same day.

The Croatian has since turned the side's fortunes around, winning nine times in 17 games to take Watford up by seven places and revive their campaign.

Rotherham, meanwhile, ended their six-game winless run in the league in stunning fashion, thrashing Blackburn Rovers 4-0 on Saturday.

Hakeem Oddofin, Oliver Rothbone, Shane Ferguson and Conor Washington all scored apiece as the Millers climbed up to 19th in the league table. This was also their fourth win under Matt Taylor, who replaced Paul Warne as the manager of the South Yorkshire outfit.

Watford vs Rotherham United Prediction

Rotherham have a terrible record against Watford this century, and their poor run of form in the league this season doesn't hold them in good stead ahead of their latest outing.

Watford are flying high under Bilic, and that run should continue with another win to keep them in the hunt for promotion.
