Preview: Watford vs. Leicester City

Sports Mole previews the match between Watford and Leicester City in the Championship.

Watford host Leicester City on Saturday afternoon hoping to regain their place in the Championship playoffs.

Gianfranco Zola's team have picked up just one point from their previous two fixtures, but victory over Leicester could see them move as high as fourth position in the league table.

The Foxes have been in tremendous form in recent weeks, and they upset Fulham on Tuesday night by beating the Premier League outfit in the Capital One Cup by a 4-3 scoreline.

In the league, Nigel Pearson's side have won seven out of their last nine fixtures, and another triumph here would keep them in contention with leaders Burnley.

Watford: Almunia; Faraoni, Pudil, Ekstrand, Angella, Doyley; Murray, McEachran, McGugan; Deeney, Forestieri

Leicester City: Schmeichel; Moore, Konchesky, Wasilewski, Morgan; Drinkwater, Knockaert, King, Dyer; Vardy, Nugent

Sports Mole says: 1-2
