Hull City-Watford Preview

On the pitch, everything seems to be going well for Watford, who are off to their best Premier League start in club history with 12 points through nine matches. Yet an off-pitch distraction could derail those good feelings ahead of Saturday's match at Vicarage Road against foundering Hull City.

The Hornets (3-3-3) are ninth in the table, ahead of Bournemouth on goal difference, but the Football League is investigating the team for what is reportedly a forged document from 2014 - before Watford were promoted to the Premier League - during the transfer of the team from Giampolo Pozzo to his son Gino.

The document, which was made to appear to be written by HSBC, was designed to prove the younger Pozzo had sufficient funds to be the team's sole owner, claiming it had a "cash-backed unsecured bank guarantee up to the amount of GBP 7 million for the funding of The Watford Associated Football Club Limited for the 2014-15 season."
