Beppe Sannino described Watford’s game with Queens Park Rangers as “massive” and stressed his team must take points from all four of their remaining matches if they want to keep their play-off hopes alive.

The Hornets are five points below the top six, with a game in hand, heading into this afternoon’s contest with QPR, who are nine points above seventh-placed Reading.

Sannino said: “I think it will be a very good game because QPR are comfortably in the play-offs but still have to win the game.

“And because we want to go into the play-offs, I think it will be a good game. And I hope there will be goals.

“The only way to still dream is to get points everywhere so it is a massive game for us.”
