We've not done well at Watford - JM

We've not done well at Watford - JM

Ipswich Town boss Jim Magilton is only too aware that Watford have a been a bit of bogey side for the Tractor boys in the last few seasons.

The Hornets have won the last 6 clashes home and away, were the only side to win on East Anglian soil last season and Ipswich have to go back to March 2004 for the last time they picked up the 3 points (admittedly 4-1 live on Sky - now dubbed the 'Pidgeley nightmate`).

Magilton told the Tractor Boys official club site "We have a decent record in front of the Sky cameras although we have not done well at Watford over recent years. We'll going all out to put that right at the weekend.'

There`s been a lot of talk coming out of the Portman Road camp of 'gaining revenge` after Town were supposedly 'bullied` by Watford in last season`s 2-1 away win. Centre back Gareth McAuley commented that "Watford's style got them promoted a couple of years ago so you can't really knock it."

And even Jim Magilton is still expecting a battle and some bruising despite the fact that the Hornets are picking up plaudits for a new style of play.

He added "We know it won`t be easy. Aidy Boothroyd is an outstanding young manager so we will have to go there, roll our sleeves up and do a job".

Hmm, could all this nicely play into the Hornets hands?

Nice to see a visiting manager who is honest for a change... I'm looking forwards to a great fast paced match... Watford to win though...
