Fans: We want Leeds in play-offs

Fans: We want Leeds in play-offs

According to the result of Vital Watford’s online poll, Watford fans would like their team to face Leeds in the play-off semi-final.

With Leeds being the ‘out-of –form’ side going into the play-offs, over half of fans who voted said they would like to face Kevin Blackwell’s side. The West Yorkshire outfit have only took five points from a possible 18 in their last six games, scoring only four goals.

However, Leeds have the slight edge over Watford this season, playing out a goalless draw at Vicarage Road in October and beating nine-men Watford in controversial circumstances at Elland Road in February.

A quarter of fans who voted stated that they would like to meet Preston North End in the semi-finals. Preston won at Vicarage Road on the opening day of the season but were held to a 1-1 draw by Watford in October at Deepdale. Preston go into the play-offs as the form team, amassing a total of 16 points out of a possible 18 in recent games.

Under a fifth of fans who voted said that they would like to face Crystal Palace in the semi’s. Free-spending Iain Dowie’s outfit have beat the Golden Boys on two occasions this season, a controversial penalty saw Palace take three points at Vicarage Road in December whilst the Eagles beat Watford at Selhurst in March courtesy of two own-goals. They have collected eight points out of a possible 18 in their last six outings.

Well, you've got Palace. They are not going at their best at the moment, but they do have play off experience, so you can't write them off.
