Stoke City v Watford - Sky Bet Championship
Watford will host Swansea City in the Sky Bet Championship

Watford will welcome Swansea City to Vicarage Road for a matchday 13 fixture in the EFL Championship on Wednesday.

The hosts come into the game on the back of a rampaging 4-0 away victory over Stoke City last weekend. Ismaila Sarr, Ken Sema, Keinan Davis and Vakoun Bayo all got on the scoresheet for the Hornets.

Swansea City narrowly edged out West Brom in a five-goal thriller away from home. The Welsh outfit took the lead through Matthew Sorinola's early strike but the home side fought back to take a 2-1 lead in the 65th minute. Michael Obafemi stepped off the bench to help Swansea leave the Hawthorns with a 3-2 victory.
