Sports Mole looks ahead to Friday's Championship encounter between Leicester City and Watford.

Nothing but a win will do on Friday night if Watford are to keep their hopes of securing automatic promotion to the Premier League alive this season.

With two matches left to play, Gianfranco Zola's team are four points behind Hull City in second place. Hull can secure promotion with a victory at Barnsley on Saturday, but the trip to the King Power Stadium provides the Hornets with a chance to apply some pressure.

No team in the Championship has picked up more points on the road this season than Watford, who have won half of their 22 away encounters.

Leading goalscorer Matej Vydra has found himself on the bench of late, but he could return to the starting lineup for the match against the Foxes to partner Troy Deeney.

Meanwhile, Leicester could include New Zealand international Chris Wood in their attack, with Harry Kane also pushing for a starting role.

Watford have not won in their last five visits to Leicester - a run that dates back to August 2004.
