There is only one game from The Football League live on television this week which sees an enticing matchup in the npower Championship.

Watford play host to Reading at Vicarage Road on Saturday with a 5.20pm kick-off. It looks like it could prove to be an important fixture for both clubs concerned for very different reasons. The Hornets will be hoping to make home advantage count as they look to consolidate their position above the relegation zone, whereas the visitors will be looking to secure their Play-Off standing.

But confidence will be running high for the Hornets who have lost just once out of their last six games. Before their 2-0 defeat to Portsmouth at Fratton Park, Watford were on a run of two wins and three draws which will have pleased manager Sean Dyche.

The Royals on the other hand have been in even better form picking up 12 points out of a possible 18 - the joint third best return in the npower Championship. A statistic that has no doubt helped Reading to their fifth placed position on 39 points - eight off top spot.

Interestingly, the visitors have the second highest number of clean sheets in the league with 10 shutouts which could mean the Hornets may find it difficult to find the net. But Watford have managed to find the net 18 times at home this campaign which suggests goals have not been a problem in front of their fans.

Looking back in the history books an things are very even. Watford have won 44 times, Reading 42 and they have 25 draws out of a total 111 matches which stretch back to February 1921.

The last time both sides met was in September earlier in the season at the Madjeski Stadium with Watford picking up the points with a solid 2-0 win. Goals from Mark Yeates and John Eustace earned the Hornets their first Championship win of the season.

But as we come towards the business end of the season it could well be a different story when the TV cameras turn up.
