IT'S quite possibly the most important game of the season for both Watford and Plymouth Argyle this weekend at the Vic', if the Hornet's win they'll pull themselves a massive three points clear of relegation, leaving Paul Marriner's Plymouth would be left seven points adrift of safety. If Sheffield Wednesday better Watford's result the Hornet's will drop into the bottom three.
It's delicately poised...
Malky Mackay has massive headache selections at the weekend with a growing injury list.
Tom Cleverley's season is over following knee ligament injury whilst Jon Harley and Henri Lansbury are both suspended.
Martin Taylor, Heidar Helguson, Lloyd Doyley and Will Buckley will all be assessed prior to the game following ankle, calf and hamstring problems.

A 'worst case scenario' team, if all our injured players failed to return...
The former Middlesbrough and Carlisle United forward scored an absolute corker against West Brom on Monday from 25 yards to notch his 50th career league goal and his 10th of the campaign.
Right backs David McNamee and Karl Duguid are both out meaning that versatile midfielder Chris Clark looks likely to slot in at right-back for the visitors.
Likely Plymouth Argyle XI

Local-boy Joe Mason has made a big impact on the first-team setup at Home Park scoring 3 goals in 3 league starts, making a further 12 substitute appearances in the Championship.

A really, really hard game to call; both sides have a claim to win the game but I think home advantage (and my own bias) will see Watford through to three points.
Leicester City (A) 17th April - Tough, very tough.
