Preview: Watford Vs Sheffield Utd

After suffering relegation last term, Watford have gone for a change of tack with the appointment of Rob Edwards, the man who led Forest Green Rovers to promotion from League Two in 2021/22. Edwards is now the Hornets’ 19th appointment across the last decade, so starting strong is likely a must if he is to remain beyond Christmas.
The previous two managers were both at least 70 years of age, so we may see a fresh approach from the 39-year-old boss. A host of stars have left the club and with speculation around 2021/22 top scorer Emmanuel Dennis refusing to die down, the onus for goals may fall to Watford’s £5m+ new boy Vakoun Issouf Bayo, who bagged 11 times in the Belgian Pro League last season.
