AFC Bournemouth v Watford Preview, Championship, Friday 30th January 2015

Bournemouth are having a very productive season so far and currently lead the way at the top of the Championship league table and with home advantage on Friday night and a packed out crowd expected at the Goldsands Stadium the players and fans will be confident that they can obtain the right result against Watford.

Watford are also having a good season and currently occupy 6th position in the league table and just 4pts behind their hosts, so they will see this game as a very good opportunity to close that gap and a victory would certainly put them right in the hunt for the league title come May.

Bournemouth Team News:

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has almost a full squad at his disposal but will be missing the injured Dan Gosling for this match. The good news for Bournemouth fans though is that South African striker Tokelo Rantie should be available having made the trip back from the African Cup of Nations after his side was eliminated from the tournament.

Watford Team News:

Watford manager Slavia Jokanovic will be without the services of Joel Ekstrand, Almen Abdi, Fernando Forestieri and Sean Murray as all four players continue to receive treatment for respective injury related problems. Striker Odion Ighalo will be looking to emulate his excellent performance against Blackpool last weekend in which he scored 4 times and will lead the attack up front for the visitors alongside Troy Deeney.

AFC Bournemouth v Watford Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

A real cracker of a game in prospect come Friday night with the whole match being shown live on Sky Sports 1 High Definition with a 7:45pm Kick Off Time.

Bournemouth are the strong favourites to win and rightly so based on what they have achieved so far this season. Eddie Howe’s side have been very consistent and will be looking to put their defeat last weekend away against Leeds United behind them.

Watford came from 2 goals down to smash Blackpool 7-2 in their match at Vicarage Road last weekend and manager Slavia Jokanovic will be looking for a similar performance from this players.

These two sides have scored 113 goals between them so far this season, so this game should see its fair share and as such my Banker for this game is going to be for Both Teams to Score & Draw as I think a score-line of 1-1 or 2-2 is definitely a possible outcome.

My Saver is going to be for Watford striker Odion Ighalo to Score at Anytime during this game as with the player having netted four times last weekend against Blackpool, he will be in very confident mood of adding more goals to his season’s tally.
