Wycombe Wanderers Vs Watford
Watford continue their preparations for the forthcoming Premiership campaign with a trip to the Causeway Stadium.
The Hornets and the Chairboys have not met since December 1997 when the outcome was a goalless draw. In total the two clubs have met on five occasions with Watford winning three clashes, the first an F.A Cup tie in 1960 with a 5-1 Watford win. The other two meetings have ended in goalless draws.
Hornets` legend Tommy Mooney will come up against one of his former clubs this Wednesday. The former Oxford, Swindon, Derby and Birmingham hitman spent six successful years at the 'Vic. Mooney left Oxford in 2005 to move to John Gorman`s Wycombe.
