Wary of Watford

27 October 2012

Black predicts another tough game at Ewood this afternoon.

Eric Black is once again expecting a tough match when Rovers come up against Watford this Saturday afternoon.

Watford, managed by Gianfranco Zola, travel to Ewood Park for the first time in over six years and the Rovers interim manager doesn't think they'll be easy opposition.

"There's a continental approach to them," said Black. "Obviously starting with the manager who is very experienced both as a coach and as a player.

"They've obviously got the link with Udinese which has allowed them to bring one or two younger players in and they've had a steady start to the campaign."

Watford lie in 15th place in the league but they have a healthy record on the road this season, winning three of their six matches played.

"They've been playing a 3-5-2 formation and fortunately for us a couple of their players were sent off during the week and they won't be involved so it might disrupt them a little bit," added Black.

"But, as ever, we are expecting another hard game. In the week they really should have beaten Cardiff City, if they hadn't lost the players they did then I'm pretty sure they'd have secured a good away victory, so it won't be an easy task."

Tickets for the game will be on open sale until the 3.00pm kick-off. Tickets are priced from £15 for Adults, £10 Seniors and £7 for Juniors.
