Head to Head records: Home v Watford


Back in the 1988/89 season, it was before the FA Cup had introduced extra time and penalties hence ties could be played over several replays before the tie was decided until there was a winner. When we came up against Watford in the third round of the FA Cup that season, the tie was decided over four games (three replays) over the course of eleven days.

In terms of recent history with meetings between these two sides, when we have come up against Watford, no team has scored more than two goals in one game in the last 23 meetings - the first of which dating back to April 1988.
