Watford will travel to Birmingham City on the opening day of the season after The Football League Championships fixtures were announced at 9 am this morning. The Hornets will start their campaign at St Andrew where they will face Birmingham City on Saturday 3rd August 2013. The Hornets first home match of the season will be the following weekend (Saturday 10th August 2013) where they will play Eddie Howe's AFC Bournemouth who won promotion from League 1 last season. The games over the Christmas period look good but especially the games on Boxing Day and on Sunday 29th December. The Hornets welcome London rivals Milwall to Vicarage Road on Boxing Day whilst on the 29th December, QPR come to Vicarage Road in what should be a tasty match up. On new years day, Watford will travel to newly promoted Yeovil Town. The month of February looks challenging for the Hornets with home ties against Brighton and Middlesbrough and away games against Leicester and Bolton. Watfords last away game of the season will be against Derby County on Saturday 26th April 2014. The Hornets end the season at home on the 3rd May against Huddersfield Town a team Watford beat at Vicarage Road this season 4-0. For the full list of fixtures see below:
