Gianfranco Zola's side, beaten in the play-off final by Crystal Palace last term, then welcome new boys Bournemouth to Vicarage Road a week later before a trip to relegated Reading.

Christmas sees two home London derbies for the Hornets, with Millwall on Boxing Day followed by Harry Redknapp's QPR three days later.

Watford start 2014 with a trip to new boys Yeovil while they are on the road over Easter to QPR and Derby on April 19 and 21 respectively.

Their final road game is at Derby (April 26) before they finish the campaign at home to Huddersfield on May 3.
