Watford are odds on favourites to win their FA Cup third round tie at League 1 strugglers Bristol City tomorrow.

The Hornets have yet to taste defeat under new head coach Beppe Sannino with two draws and a comprehensive victory over Millwall.

The Golden Boys are a best price of 10/11 with Ladbrokes but will not have it all their own way at the improving Robins.

Bristol City have only lost one of their last five games under new boss Steve Cotterill and are coming off their biggest win of the season after beating Stevenage 4-1.

Backing the draw at 5/2 with Coral doesn't look the worst bet available especially as this would have paid off in their last five away contests.

Bristol City can be backed at 10/3 [Coral] for victory but the Hornets' solidity under Sannino suggests it is worth steering clear of this bet.

Former West Ham United striker Sam Baldock has netted four goals in his last five games so the City poacher could be worth a small wager to score anytime at 2/1 with Coral.
