Second-placed Leicester City travel to Watford, looking to return to the top after being replaced by Cardiff City on Saturday.

High-flying Leicester City face a tricky trip to Gianfranco Zola's Watford, who themselves are looking to create a gap to the bottom three.

The home side were denied a point at Ewood Park in the dying seconds on Saturday and will be looking to return to the goalscoring form of earlier in the season.

Leicester's run of six games without defeat came to an end at home to Crystal Palace, a result which knocked them off the Championship top spot.

Zola might look to rejuvenate his attack by bringing in Spaniard Alexandre Geijo for Fernando Forestieri, while Nigel Pearson could stick with a similar team that had been so impressive until the Palace defeat.

Recent form:

Watford: WLWLL

Leicester: WWDWL

Possible lineups:

Watford: Almunia; Hall, Doyley, Cassetti, Hoban; Fanchone, Yeates, Hogg; Smith; Geijo

Leicester: Schmeichel; De Laet, Konchesky, Morgan, Whitbread; Drinkwater, James, Knockaert; Vardy, Nugent

Sports Mole says: 1-2
