Crystal Palace face a trip to Watford at Vicarage Road Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Eagles will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in September 2002, when they fought out a thrilling high-scoring 3 - 3 draw in a League Division One match.
