Sports Mole previews the action from this weekend's Championship clash between Watford and Blackpool.

The Championship's form side Watford play host to Blackpool this weekend looking to maintain their grip on second place.

Gianfranco Zola's side are on an impressive run, with four wins and no defeats in the last six matches.

Blackpool have become draw specialists of late, with their last three matches ending in stalemate. They go into the game in 17th place and could be drawn into a relegation scrap should they lose at Vicarage Road.

Paul Ince's side are without the services of forward Gary Taylor-Fletcher, who is expected to be out for between six and eight weeks with a hamstring tear.

Zola is expected to name an unchanged side from the 2-1 victory over Sheffield Wednesday, with fringe player Sergio Neuton his only fresh injury concern.
