Following an excellent run of form throughout the last few months, Bristol City stumbled in their pursuit of an automatic promotion place when their seven-game unbeaten run came to an end on Saturday with a 2-1 defeat at home to league leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers and worse was to come when they were on the receiving end of a 5-0 thrashing at Aston Villa last time out. The Robins have now suffered back-to-back defeats for the first time this season and clearly they will be desperate to bounce back and restore some morale in the side. Can they take advantage of Watford's woes this weekend and edge past the Premier League side into the fourth round of the FA Cup?

Bristol City had banged in six goals in three away matches prior to their hammering at Villa Park, however while that latest result won't have boosted confidence in the Robins' camp, we don't believe that the Hornets will be putting up too much of a fight. Aside from their defeat at Aston Villa, Lee Johnson's men have lost just once away from home this season and we envisage them taking Watford back to Ashton Gate for a third-round replay at the very least.

The Hornets have been struggling through a pretty dismal spell of form lately and head into this weekend's FA Cup third-round clash on the back of a poor run which has seen them lose two on the bounce - one of these defeats coming against rock-bottom Premier League side Swansea City - although they have been unimpressive prior to this and with six defeats in seven outings, we believe that they are there for the taking on Saturday.

Bristol City will be in for a tough assignment, that's for certain, however Watford's defensive frailties will prove their undoing this weekend and while we expect the Hornets to add to the scoreline, the best value for us is on the Double Chance market with Bristol City / Draw up for grabs at an excellent 17/10 with BetVictor Free Bets.
