West Bromwich Albion look for their 5th home win this season, and it could be crucial in keeping their automatic promotion hopes on track.
Roberto Di Matteo has revealed that he has been putting our strikers through shooting practice to try and improve our poor goal tally from recent games.
He told the official website, 'We always have sessions where we work on finishing and scoring goals but I think we'll be having a few extra ones this week.'
It's still not clear whether Roman Bednar will be fully fit to return, or if Simon Cox will get the nod to start after a successful scoring performance for the reserves on Monday evening.
Despite all of the focus on getting things right up front, I think the key to winning this match will be at the back. Watford are a very real threat in front of goal, they are creative and quick. Scott Carson needs to be focused 100% and he needs to make sure that those around him are organised and disciplined right from the start.
Watford have a couple of on-loan signings at the moment, and are currently in talks with the parent clubs to extend the services of Tom Cleverley (Manchester United) and Henri Lansbury (Arsenal).
Heidar Helguson is also set to return to the Watford side for Saturday's game.
Both loan signings have settled well with the Hornets, but Arsenal youngster (they seem to be everywhere) Henri Lansbury particularly impressed during last weekends' game against Sheffield Wednesday. As an attacking midfielder he can score and provide.
