Hornets visiting on 29th August

Our Carabao Cup Second Round fixture with Watford has been set for Wednesday 29th August, kicking off at 8pm at Madejski Stadium.

After returning from a pre-season trip to Germany, Javi Gracia’s Hornets began their league campaign with a 2-0 win against Brighton on the opening day.
