Sports Mole previews the Championship encounter between Watford and Middlesbrough at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

Watford and Middlesbrough go head to head at Vicarage Road in the Championship on Saturday, with the home side looking to make it three wins on the spin.

Gianfranco Zola will be without Fernando Forestieri, who serves a one-match ban following his red card in the 2-1 win over Charlton Athletic.

Chris Iwelumo could come in to replace him, while Nyron Nosworthy should make his return from a hamstring injury.

Scott McDonald is in contention for his first appearance for Boro this season, while Marvin Emnes and Adam Reach both face late fitness tests.

Current form:

Watford: LLDWW
Middlesbrough: WLWWL

Possible lineups:

Watford: Almunia; Neuton, Hall, Pudil, Cassetti; Hoban, Chalobah, Hogg, Abdi; Deeney, Iwelumo

Middlesbrough: Steele; Friend, Woodgate, Bikey, Hoyte; McEachran, Bailey, Thomson, Leadbitter; Jutkiewicz, McDonald

Sports Mole says: 2-1
