Preview - Hull City

The Hornets go in search of their second home win of the season on Saturday afternoon when newly promoted Hull City visit Vicarage Road.

Mike Phelan's side have found life back in the top-flight tough going following an excellent start to the campaign in which an opening day win against reigning champions Leicester City was backed up by a 2-0 win away at Swansea City.

However, the Tigers have been without a league win since their second game of the season and find themselves arriving in Hertfordshire languishing in 17th position and sitting on seven points.

Ahead of the clash, watch the above video to hear from defender Miguel Britos as he reflects on two successive clean sheets as and looks ahead to Saturday's test, as well as an opposition profile and all the key statistics.

Club Statement

Watford Football Club was recently contacted by the EFL in relation to matters concerning a proof of funds document for £7m provided to the EFL by Hornets Investments Ltd in 2014 in order to ratify a change in Hornets Investments Ltd shareholding. 
 
The Club had no prior knowledge of any concerns about the authenticity of the document and Hornets Investments Ltd has invested over £20m into the Club since the proof of funds 2014 document. 

The Club takes this matter extremely seriously and has instructed independent solicitors to carry out an investigation into relevant matters and provide the EFL with the solicitor’s report early next month. The EFL has indicated it is happy with this course of action.
 
In light of the ongoing investigation it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.
