It's now a run of seven games without a win for the Goldenboys, equalling their impressive seven unbeaten stretch pre-Christmas as they head to inconsistent Doncaster Rovers who last time out recorded a decent draw at high-fliers Norwich.
Sean O'Driscoll's side are, much like Watford, the model of inconsistency and that has prevented Rovers really kicking on up the league once again this year.
Sullivan; Hird, Thomas, Friend, Mills; Oster, Wilson, Stock (c), Keegan; Moussa and Euell.
Simon Gillett, Mustufa Dumbuya and Adam Lockwood (all knee) are out.
Veteran 'keeper Neil Sullivan is recently back from a shin problem.
Central midfielder Martin Woods out (groin) whilst defender Shelton Martis (ankle) also on the Donny injury list.
Striker James Hayter (calf also), sidelined too.
Blackpool veteran Jason Euell and Leictester's attacking midfielder Franck Moussi recently penned loan deal with the Yorkshire side.
Formerly of Bournemouth and Preston North End the Welsh international is the heartbeat at the centre of the Donny midfield.
A good passer with good vision stock is the Yorkshire sides club captain and has racked up 149 league starts having initially arrived on loan in 2007.
Lloyd Doyley and Will Buckley both missed the Bristol City visit and could well be sidelined again meaning starts for Adam Thompson and Ross Jenkins.
Matty Whichelow could come into contention to add more flair to the midfield in place of Jenkins whilst loanee Andros Townsend has been sent back to parent club Spurs.
Likely Line-up: Loach; Thompson, Mariappa, Taylor, Hodson; Eustace (c); Cowie, Whichelow, McGinn; Weimann and Graham
The Hornet's academy graduate has had more of an impact on the first team this season then even he would have dared to dream.
Came off the bench against PNE to secure a point with a goal and an assist before being dropped for the Bristol City. Should be involved against Doncaster with any sense from Malky to add some flair to the midfield.
Doncaster Home Form: Doncaster Rovers 1-0 Burnley, Doncaster Rovers 0-2 Portsmouth and Doncaster Rovers 0-6 Ipswich Town.
Watford Away Form: Cardiff City 4-2 Watford, Nottingham Forest 1-0 Watford and Reading 1-1 Watford.
Head2Head Form: Doncaster Rovers 1-2 Watford (08/09); Watford 1-1 Doncaster Rovers, Doncaster Robers 2-1 Watford (09/10); Watford 2-2 Doncaster Rovers (10/11).
Home Win - We're no good at the moment, but then Doncaster Rovers have been less than convincing at home so who knows, we may scrape three points. The pessimist in me says no though. Watford's luck needs to change.
Doncaster Rovers - 7/4 (Boylesports), Watford - 7/4 (Bet365), Draw - 12/5 (SkyBet)
