Watford

On the other hand, Watford have been going through a rough patch lately; they suffered back-to-back losses, and are without a win in their last four games. As Valerien Ismael's lads pay a visit to the Coventry Building Society Arena, they'll hope to get back to winning ways. Jamal Lewis is still sidelined with a thigh injury.

Player to watch: Matt Godden

It's worth mentioning that Coventry have scored five goals in four league matches so far, and Matt Godden bagged two of those goals. The 32 year old has put up some impressive performances for the club in recent weeks; as he found the back of the net in three of his last four matches across all competitions. Godden should be a handful for Watford's backline.
