Numbers game: Watford (H)

We break down the statistics from City's stalemate with Watford in the Sky Bet Championship.

Dean Holden’s side backed up a resolute first half by taking the game to the Hornets after the break but they couldn’t find a way past the experienced Ben Foster.

A stunning save from Dan Bentley kept the home side in the game - and help earn a third clean sheet in a row - after the visitors had enjoyed the lion’s share of possession in the opening half, while the busy Antoine Semenyo went closest for the Robins.

The draw means no movement in the Sky Bet Championship table for either side, with City still third in the standings, three points behind leaders Norwich City ahead of the weekend’s trip to Reading.
