Hull City will prepare for the play-offs within spitting distance of Watford`s training ground at London Colney after Arsenal agreed to loan the Tigers use of their facilities -less than a stone`s throw away!

Arsene Wenger has ever so kindly (!?!) offered Hull exclusive use of the Gunners first rate facilities when they travel south for Sunday`s show down despite the fact that the Premier League big boys have been close neighbours of the Hornets for more than 10 years.

Indeed a quick peek over the training ground dividng wall would have given Tigers boss Phil Brown an immediate and uninterupted insight into just what Watford had in store?

So it`s a good job that Hornets boss Aidy Boothroyd has decided to switch his own play-off preparations to the Vicarage Road pitch then isn`t it!
