Tickets for the much-anticipated Championship clash with fellow promotion hopefuls Crystal Palace are now on sale.

The match takes place on Friday 3 March (kick-off 19.45) at Selhurst Park and the South Londoners have allocated the Yellow Army 2,243 tickets for the mouth-watering match.

Iain Dowie’s outfit are currently fifth in the Championship and eight points behind Golden Boys with a game in hand. Former Premiership side Palace are able to boast that they were the last team to beat an eleven-men Watford side in the league ? back in December 2005. However, some Hornets’ fans will feel aggrieved at the defeat because the Eagles were awarded a controversial late penalty that made the score 2-1 to seal the three points.

Season ticket holders get first pick of the tickets until Friday 17 March, Shareholders and members will get second priority from Monday 20 March until before the Millwall kick-off on Saturday 25 March. Any remaining tickets will go on General sale from after full-time of the Millwall match on Saturday 25 March.

Tickets are priced at £30 for adults and £18 for Over-60s/ Under-16s and are on sale from the Ticket Office.

For any of the the Yellow Army not fortunate enough to get tickets for the big match – it is being screened live on Sky Sports.
