Sports Mole previews the Championship contest between playoff hopefuls Watford and Nottingham Forest.

Watford and Nottingham Forest both have playoff aspirations in mind going into this weekend's Championship contest.

Gianfranco Zola's side could break into the top six with a win, while three points for Forest would see them leapfrog their opponents.

Sean O'Driscoll could recall Simon Cox for the Vicarage Road clash as the Republic of Ireland international has resumed full training following a foot injury.

Sam Hutchinson (knee) and Jermaine Jenas (calf) are also back in training, but are unlikely to feature in Saturday's game.

Watford striker Fernando Forestieri misses out with a hamstring problem, while Lloyd Doyley and Dale Bennett are still in rehab with respective calf and back injuries.

John Eustace, Jonathan Bond and Nyron Nosworthy are all available for selection after shaking off injuries.
