Watford boss Gianfranco Zola believes that the automatic promotion race in the Championship will go down to the final day following his side's win over Leicester City.

Watford manager Gianfranco Zola has claimed that the race for automatic promotion in the Championship will go down to the final day following his side's win over Leicester City.

The Hornets' 2-0 victory at the King Power Stadium on Friday night has seen them move to within a point of second-placed Hull City, who travel to Barnsley on Saturday.

Hull will go up if they win their penultimate game of the regular season at Oakwell, but Zola believes that they will fail to do so.

"I think this promotion race will go down to the final day now," the Italian told Sky Sports News. "I will keep an eye on Hull tomorrow, but I will try to relax as well."

Watford were last relegated from the Premier League in 2007 after one season in the top flight.
