‘A huge relief’ – Watford vs Swansea City prediction: The72

The72’s writers offer their Watford vs Swansea City prediction ahead of the Championship clash on Wednesday.

Watford lost 1-0 away at Millwall in their latest Championship clash. They have been in poor form over recent times.

The Hornets have slipped down to 12th in the table. They are 12 points off the play-offs with just 11 matches left to play of the season.

As for Swansea City, they have been sucked into a relegation battle. The Welsh outfit are only four points above the drop zone.

Luke Williams’ side won 2-1 at home to Blackburn Rovers in their latest fixture. Joe Allen and Jamie Paterson got their goals against Rovers.

Here, a handful of our writers make their predictions for the game…

Harry Mail

“It could be season over for Watford if they lose here. The Hornets’ chances of making the top six are fading away fast.

They have won just once in their last 10 games in all competitions and that was against bottom of the table Rotherham United.

Swansea City have won their last two games and I can see them getting a result at Vicarage Road. Luke Williams seems to have the players on his side.

The Swans are fighting for their lives and I think they might make it three wins on the spin.”

Watford vs Swansea City prediction: 0-1

James Ray

“This upturn in form for Swansea City has come at the perfect time. It’ll be a huge relief, but there’s still plenty of work to do to put some meaningful distance between themselves and the drop before the campaign comes to an end.

“They’ve got another winnable game here too. Watford are really struggling and look set to see their season fade away into mid-table uncertainty. Pressure will be on Ismael to get a result, but perhaps the club will take a different view to usual, accepting this season is unlikely to be revived and giving Ismael a chance to prepare for the 2024/25 campaign.

“That does feel unlikely though, as does a result here. I’ll back Swansea City to make it three in a row.”
