The visitors on the other hand, secured a fifth place finish in the 2021-22 Championship table, before losing the Playoff final to Nottingham Forest. 

Watford had a disappointing pre-season, recording just one win from four outings. The Hornets are still searching for their first home league win of 2022. Watford have made a number of summer signings to bolster the squad, bringing in Vakoun Issouf Bayo, Mario Gaspar, Rey Manaj and Ben Hamer. Sheffield, on the other hand, came close yet so far to a promotion last term. Meanwhile the Blades haven’t had a  great summer, losing three of their last four pre-season friendlies away to Scunthorpe United, Mansfield Town and Barnsley, but victories over Lincoln City, Casa Pia and Burton Albion did come their way.
