Watford have kept alive their hopes of automatic promotion in the Championship with a 2-1 win at Leicester City.

Goals from Troy Deeney and Nathaniel Chalobah have seen Gianfranco Zola's side move to within a point of second-placed Hull City, who play on Saturday.

The visitors went ahead in the 43rd minute when Deeney converted from close range following Joel Ekstrand's header back across goal.

Their advantage was doubled almost instantly as Chalobah fired in a ferocious drive from 30 yards that went in off the underside of the crossbar.

Harry Kane headed in Paul Konchesky's cross on the hour to reduce the deficit for the hosts, but they were unable to find an equaliser.
