Watford and Birmingham City will both be determined to pick up points when they go head to head this weekend.

Watford will hope to get back on track following their dip earlier this week when they welcome Birmingham City to Vicarage Road.

Gianfranco Zola's side will aim to improve upon their 1-0 defeat to Ipswich Town, while the Blues are also heading into the clash on the back of a loss following their 3-2 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday.

Watford could line up with Matej Vydra up front alongside Chris Iwelumo, which is likely to put Joe Garner on the sidelines.

Meanwhile, Blues boss Lee Clark will place Jack Butland, who made his England debut last week, in goal despite the shotstopper letting in three goals earlier this week.

Birmingham forward Nikola Zigic is likely to be given a starting spot after coming on in the first half against Sheffield Wednesday.

Watford: Almunia; Hodson, Taylor, Nosworthy, Yeates; Hogg, Murray, Pudil, Abdi; Vydra, Garner

Birmingham City: Butland; Murphy, Caldwell, Davies, Spector; Burke, Mullins, Ambrose, Redmond; Zigic, King

Sports Mole says: 2-2
