Match Preview

Geijo calls for positive approach Watford striker Alex Geijo has called for positivity from players and fans alike ahead of Sunday's npower Championship play-off semi-final second leg clash with Leicester. David Nugent's first goal in 17 games consigned Gianfranco Zola's men to a 1-0 defeat in Thursday's first leg but Geijo believes a "dream" Wembley final is still well within Watford's grasp. The on-loan Udinese forward admitted Leicester made life very difficult for his side in the first leg but insists the Hornets have every chance of turning the tie around at Vicarage Road. Geijo told the club's official website: "We knew it was going to be a difficult game, it was a semi-final. They made it difficult for us in the way they played. "They pressed us hard, and put pressure on us, so it's difficult for the defence to cope for 90 minutes. "Sometimes, when you're under pressure, you have to go more direct, and their defenders are big, and strong, and made things difficult. It was hard, but you have to play these games too. It's not always easy. "It wasn't the best result because we lost, but it's only 1-0. We need to win at home, and why can't we?" Meanwhile, David Nugent hopes Vicarage Road continues to be a happy hunting ground as he aims to fire Leicester into the npower Championship play-off final. Nugent's late goal on Thursday night has given the Foxes the edge heading into the second leg of the semi-final. The striker has a good goalscoring record against the Hornets, especially on their patch. He has netted both home and away against Watford in each of the past two seasons for Leicester and also has goals at Vicarage Road on his record during his spells with Portsmouth and Preston. "I've got a good record against Watford, particularly down there, so I hope it can carry on," Nugent said. "They seem to be a team that I always score against, so I'm quite pleased that we've got Watford in the next game. "I've scored there for Preston, I've scored there for Portsmouth and I've scored there for Leicester in the last few seasons so hopefully I can carry it on and that will be the case again on Sunday. "It would be great if I could do it again and help get the club to Wembley." Pearson reported no injury problems following Thursday night's encounter and he could name an unchanged starting line up for the third straight match. Paul Konchesky returned from a minor hernia operation and was on the bench for the first leg. A possible change could see him recalled at left-back at the expense of Jeff Schlupp.
