Sports Mole looks ahead to Watford's home Championship clash against new boys Bournemouth.

Both Watford and Bournemouth have a 100% record so far in the early stages of the 2013-14 season as they prepare to face each other at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

The home side began their Championship season with a slender 1-0 win over Birmingham City, which was followed by a 3-1 win over Bristol Rovers in the League Cup just a few days later.

Bournemouth are yet to taste defeat since being promoted to the Championship from League One at the end of last season. They marked their arrival with a 2-1 victory over Charlton Athletic and carried their success into the League Cup with a 1-0 win over Portsmouth.

Watford manager Gianfranco Zola is likely to start the match with Troy Deeney and Fernando Forestieri up front with Lewis McGugan slotting in midfield.

Meanwhile, Bournemouth's Eddie Howe could opt for Wesley Thomas and last week's goalscorer Lewis Grabban to lead the line.
