Watford’s game at Nottingham Forest this afternoon will go ahead as planned, it has been confirmed.

Overnight snowfall in the area had led to concerns about the match but a brief statement on Forest’s official website states “conditions have improved and the game has been given the all-clear”.

The Hornets travel to the City Ground seeking to stretch their unbeaten away league run to seven matches and knowing that a third successive three points will lift them to fourth in the Championship table.
