Watford have indicated they may provide extra supporters' coaches for Tuesday's away game with Charlton Athletic due to the planned Tube strikes.

The Hornets' first coach is full but the club have asked fans - many of whom may have planned to travel by rail - to contact them on ticket.office@watfordfc.com should they be interested in booking a place.

The Golden Boys' coach travel costs £16 per person and leaves Greenhill Crescent at 4.15pm. It no longer stops at Vicarage Road.

Rail workers are staging a series of strikes over three separate disputes, which cover issues including pay, jobs and pensions.

If the strikes go ahead as planned, the Tube services will be affected from around 9pm on Monday until the morning of Thursday, May 1. And then again from around 9pm on Monday, May 5 until the morning of Friday, May 9.

Transport For London states it will run as many Tube trains as possible but admit there will be "significant disruption". It also confirmed the last trains of the day will be earlier than normal.

However, the DLR, London Overground and other rail services will run normally and there will be extra bus services on key routes.

Good stuff to run more coaches. Years ago we used to take convoys of coaches to away games but the expectation is that for local games we could get to places like Charlton quite easily by public transport and a few beers on the way. As for the RMT! 2 sides to a dispute but when there are no job losses involved and 800+ workers are fed up enough to take voluntary terms to leave TfL what are the RMT hoping to achieve?
