Reading will be hoping to complete a league double over Watford when they visit Vicarage Road on Friday night.

The Hornets have been one of the most eye-catching sides in the league this season and find themselves in second position in the Championship.

We spoke to Ryan Gray from the Watford Observer who gave us an insight into what Royals fans can expect from the Hornets.

Xisco Munoz has enjoyed success since his appointment. Do you put the form down to his management style or the quality of the squad?

It’s definitely a little from each column. They had the quality before his arrival, but there wasn’t that team element that he has brought with him.

Before they were being played in a formation that didn’t suit them and didn’t allow them to play to their strengths, which I think created some frustration among the players.

They certainly seem a lot happier and much more together since his arrival.

Would you say that Hornets fans are confident that promotion is more or less wrapped up, or are there still nerves ahead of the run-in?

There are definitely still some nerves. I think they should be fine now, if they continue playing as well as they have been, but others aren’t as convinced as I am.

I think as few as two or three more wins could be enough to take them up, but some are saying four or five wins are still needed.

I personally can’t see the chasing pack mounting that much of a challenge, especially the way they’ve been playing in recent weeks.

What sort of style can Royals fans expect to see from Watford on Friday night?

They’ll be very attacking, particularly down the wings with Ismaila Sarr and Ken Sema likely to be starting in the wide positions.

The right is arguably their most threatening position with Kiko Femenia and Sarr linking up brilliantly throughout the season.

They like to keep the ball down and minimise long balls, although they aren’t afraid to try that route if they need to.

There’s also plenty of creativity through the middle with Philip Zinckernagel, Will Hughes and Nathaniel Chalobah.

Who are the key men to keep an eye out for?

I’ve already mentioned Ismaila Sarr, who has been playing terrifically in recent weeks, but Joao Pedro is also a real threat.

He’s only 19 but has had a terrific first full season with the club and his diminutive frame belies just how strong he can be.

He’s not scored in a few games now, but is certainly capable of finding the net. He’s certainly a player who has a bright future ahead of him.

Score prediction?

I can see it being a close game, but Watford are very difficult to play against at Vicarage Road, so I’ll go for a 2-1 win to the Hornets.
