Sports Mole previews the Championship showdown between Watford and Huddersfield Town.

Watford will be looking to consolidate their position inside the Championship playoff places when they host Huddersfield Town this weekend.

Gianfranco Zola's side head into the game in sixth place in the league and off the back of an impressive 2-1 win at Middlesbrough.

Huddersfield, who are 17th in the standings and on a winless run of 11 matches, have got into the habit of drawing games of late, last weekend's 1-1 stalemate against Birmingham City being their fourth in six games.

Zola is unlikely to make any changes from the Boro victory, with Jonathan Hogg, Fitz Hall (both hamstring) and Tommie Hoban (Achilles) the only likely absentees.

Huddersfield boss Lee Clark is expected to start with former Everton duo James Vaughan and Jermaine Beckford upfront, with recent loan signing Neil Danns keeping his place in the team.
