Poor away results are holding back Watford's promotion push and the Hornets may experience further frustration at St Andrew's, where hosts Coventry look capable of earning a share of the spoils.
Watford are notorious for sacking managers and the pressure is mounting on Xisco Munoz, who presided over a dismal 2-1 loss at home to QPR on Monday.
Munoz was brought in to deliver a more attacking style of play but his team looked disjointed and bereft of ideas against QPR and showed a defensive vulnerability which was rarely seen under predecessor Vladimir Ivic.
Coventry may sense an opportunity to take three points but they lack the quality individuals at Watford's disposal and may be short of confidence after winning just two of their last ten games.
Second-tier survival would be a success story for Coventry, who have won two promotions over the last three seasons, and they would probably regard a point against Watford as a step in the right direction.
Watford have won two of their last 11 away fixtures
