Hull V Watford Match Preview.

02/04/2013 17:25

Watford travel to Hull tonight to play Hull City at the KC Stadium in the Npower Championship in what is the Hornets most important match of the season as Hull lie second and the Hornets Third. Defeat would mean that the Hornets would certainly be battling for a play off place whilst a victory would put them right in the hunt for an automatic promotion place. During the match earlier this season at Vicarage Road, Hull ran out 2-1 winners thanks to goals from David Meyler and Robbie Brady with Troy Deeney scoring the Hornets goal. Hull's danger man will be Robert Koren. The Slovenian Midfielder is a constant threat and will run the show for the tigers. Also the Hornets defender's need to watch out for striker Gedo. The Egyptian arrived on loan in January and has been in good form for the tigers. Another play to watch out for is George Boyd. The winger signed for Hull on loan recently and has scored 3 goals in 6 appearences for them. A win would mean the Hornets would only be 1 pointC behind Hull later on this evening.
