Watford are 6/4 favourites with Paddy Power to win at newly-promoted Rotherham United tonight.

The Hornets were well beaten at Norwich City on Saturday and the team had a tough afternoon playing virtually the whole match with ten men.

But the bookmakers fancy Beppe Sannino's side to bounce back with victory at the Millers this evening.

Stretching back to last season, the Hornets have won just one of their last 18 away matches in the Championship so those odds do not appeal.

Rotherham got off the mark with a home win against Wolves on Saturday and the hosts look reasonable value at 2/1 to overcome Watford.

But the draw arguably looks the best bet of the night at 23/10 with Paddy Power. Nine of the Hornets' last 18 matches on the road have finished all square so this stands out.

Tonight's game should tell us alot about whether we have a team forming that has the character, determination and team-spirit needed for an auto promo push.
The number of long punts up to TD on Saturday was an indictation to me of a group not taking individual responsibility when things aren't going our way. It's not enough everyone wanting the ball and working hard when we're bossing inferior teams at home.

My starting lineup for tonight:
Gomez
Tamas Hoban Angella
Paredes Dyer
Tozser Andrews Abdi
Vydra Deeney

i agree, we didn't learn much from Saturday about our chances this season, but tonight will give us a clearer picture

I see Paddy Kenny has left Leeds Utd- I think he might be worth a shot as cover or if Gomes continues to creep off his line, like he has done throughout his career in England, a full time replacement.
