Match Pack: Watford v Rotherham UnitedMatch Info Watford v Rotherham United Sky Bet Championship Vicarage Road Stadium Saturday January 21, 3pm KO Officials Referee: David Webb Assistant Referees: Lee Venamore & George Byrne Fourth Official: David Rock OppositionThe Millers travel down to Vicarage Road as they look to build on their 4-0 victory against Blackburn Rovers last weekend. They currently sit 19th in the Sky Bet Championship on 30 points. Their win last week is their only victory in the last five matches after defeats to Millwall, Huddersfield Town and West Bromwich Albion. Last week they implemented a high press which made Blackburn struggle to play out from the back, a bold strategy that we may see implemented again against the Golden Boys. Stats Buzz The Hornets have won their last two league games without conceding a goal – they last won three games in a row while keeping a clean sheet in each victory back in December 2015 in the Premier League.
