Preview: Watford vs. Nottingham Forest

Sports Mole looks ahead to this Sunday's Championship clash between Watford and Nottingham Forest, who lead the table.

Both Watford and Nottingham Forest head into Sunday's encounter with unbeaten runs behind them.

While the home side have dropped two points in their opening three fixtures, Forest are currently on a 100% record and sit at the top of the table, with Watford residing below.

Gianfranco Zola's team can leapfrog Sunday's opponents into top spot if they grab all three points, and they are expected to try with the help of defenders Marco Cassetti and Joel Ekstrand, who are both fit for the match.

Cassetti was absent from Watford's 3-3 draw with Reading due to a foot injury, while Ekstrand suffered an ankle problem during the first half.

Billy Davies may consider bringing Darius Henderson into the fold for Nottingham, who can claim their fourth win on the bounce this Sunday.
