Welcome to the Independent's live coverage of Stoke City's trip to face Watford at Vicarage Road as Quique Sanchez Flores continues his wonderful first season in the Premier League.

Stoke, on the other hand, remain in contention to secure a place in the Europa League and could climb to the dizzy heights of 6th with a win today.
