ALBION ACROSTIC: WATFORD

23 April 2015


We are staying up: Albion are all but mathematically safe from relegation, following Millwall’s 2-0 defeat at the hands of Blackburn Rovers.

Andrew Crofts: The Welsh international scored a 54th-minute equaliser for Albion to earn the Seagulls a 1-1 draw against Watford back in October 2013.


Troy Deeney: The 26-year-old continues to deliver the goods, having notched up 20 goals this season for Watford, while Odion Ighalo has also achieved the same feat.


Flying high: The Hornets lead the title-race with a one-point advantage over second-placed Bournemouth, after Craig Cathcart’s 56th minute winner secured a narrow 1-0 victory over Birmingham City last Saturday.

Overall: The head-to-head record shows Albion have secured 43 victories compared to 34 for Watford, while 32 games have ended all square.

Response: Dale Stephens ended Albion’s four-game goal drought with a 55th minute strike at the DW Stadium last Saturday.

Dunk: The defender earned Albion a share of the spoils in a 1-1 draw during the reverse fixture in October, heading an equaliser past Heurelho Gomes after 77 minutes.
