It's half time, two nil down, and with the benefit of Adrian's wisdom ringing in their ears for the past 48 hours, Watford take on Hull knowing they must get back on terms A.S.A.P!

Vital Quotes:

Hull City Midfield, Bryan Hughes:

'To come away from Watford with a 2-0 win on Sunday has obviously raised excitement around the area and the profile of Hull has obviously gone up again as everyone thinks we're going to Wembley,' said Hughes.

'Obviously, we've got another game to go yet and we've got to stay focussed - the job is not finished yet.

'You can get into a bit of complacency where you've got a two-goal lead and you defend for your lives, but that's not what we are about. At home this season we've proved that we'll come out and try to score goals and I can't see us being any different tonight.


Hornets Supremo, Adrian Boothroyd

'I am enjoying this because you want these tests.

'You can go on all the courses and do all the theory but there's nothing quite like being down there on the touchline and having to draw up a battle plan.

'Even though we're 2-0 down, I'm relishing that challenge of going up to Hull because we're not out of it.'

Boothroyd can see so many positives in a negative situation that a few Government spin doctors might benefit from time spent in his company.

Remind him that Watford ended the regular season with just one win in 14 games and he complains about the negative slant in that statistic.

He points out that nine of those results were draws, adding: "I always try to use statistics to my advantage."

Hull City Team News:

Hull likely to stick with same team, Aussie winger Richard Garcia could be back after injury however.

Player to watch: Fraizer Campbell

On form, and although apparently arrogant, an excellent finisher, creator and all-round forward with pace and strength to boot.

Watford Team News:

Darius Henderson returns from suspension - in for Nathan Ellington?

John Eustace's red card overturned - set to partner Smith or Williamson.

Shittu doubtful - DeMerit in at centre back.

Player to watch: Jobi McAnuff

The ex-Palace winger is in flying form at the moment and is probably Watford's best chance of a match winner.

What's the betting?

Bookmakers William Hill are offering betting odds of 6/4 that Watford manager Aidy Boothroyd will have left the club before the start of next season, and odds of 1/2 that he survives in his job until then.

Ref Watch:

Mark Clattenburg

Match Prediction:

Hull City 0-1 Watford Slightly biased, but somehow I reckon the Horns will scrape

Congratulations, aside from all of Sunday's unpleasentries and your manager, and players behaviour, you deserve it without question, good luck.
