Watford boss Gianfranco Zola hopes the unpredictability of this season's Championship continues today.
After keeping their automatic promotion push alive with a 2-1 win at Leicester to move within a point of second-placed Hull, Watford need Barnsley to tame the Tigers at Oakwell this afternoon.
I know all of you, like me, are enormously excited by the possibility of Hull City being a Premier League team in just over 12 hours time.From @adjwilson on Twitter:
Following the announcement that Phil Neville will leave Everton in the summer, a few clubs' ears have pricked up, with the likes of Aston Villa, Stoke, Hull and QPR all interested in acquiring the utility man's services, claim the Daily Mail.
Hull saw their hold on the second automatic promotion spot in the Championship cut to one point as nearest challengers Watford ran out 1-0 winners at the KC Stadium.
Troy Deeney grabbed the only goal of the match with a well-taken effort from the edge of the area after 41 minutes as the Hornets piled the pressure on Steve Bruce's Tigers, who now have the slimmest of leads to defend over the final six games of the season.
Only one other goal was scored across three other Championship encounters tonight, that coming at the Reebok Stadium as Bolton ran out 1-0 winners over Huddersfield, with Chris Eagles the man on target.
The night's other matches ended in goalless draws.
Happy Birthday to former Oxford, Bradford, Aberdeen and Hull forward Dean Windass, who celebrates his 44th birthday today. The former bricklayer is now a broadcaster, and has dispensed with the bottle blond hair.
