IT’S quite possibly the most important game of the season for both Watford and Plymouth Argyle this weekend at the Vic’, if the Hornet’s win they’ll pull themselves a massive three points clear of relegation, leaving Paul Marriner’s Plymouth would be left seven points adrift of safety. If Sheffield Wednesday better Watford’s result the Hornet’s will drop into the bottom three.
It’s delicately poised…

A really, really hard game to call; both sides have a claim to win the game but I think home advantage (and my own bias) will see Watford through to three points.
