Things are going rather well for Watford right now it seems.

The Hornets 4-1 thrashing of Rotherham United on Tuesday, coupled with defeat for Swansea and a draw for Brentford in midweek, means that Watford are now three points clear of the play-off places in the race for automatic promotion back to the Premier League.

Away from the battle for promotion however, there are still plenty of issues for Watford to consider, with plenty of new emerging from Vicarage Road surrounding a number of different issues.

Here, we take a look at some of the biggest Watford news stories from over the past few days.
