Watford have been given a boost ahead of their League Cup clash with Swansea City this evening.
According to the club website, the club have a full clean bill of health apart from Craig Cathcart and Troy Deeney.
Cathcart is allegedly nearing a full recovery from a thigh injury he picked up while on international duty with Northern Ireland, though tonight will be too soon for him.
Troy Deeney is still recovering from a knee injury which he picked up in August. He has since had surgery, but today posted an update on Twitter claiming that he is taking a step in the right direction.
It’s good news for Watford that they are pretty much at full-strength. However, they may be more grateful for that with Saturday’s fixture in mind.
With Watford sitting bottom of the Premier League, they may be more focussed on picking up some points in the league as they face Wolves on Saturday who are 19th in the league.
A lot has changed from April 7 when the two met in the FA Cup semi-final, when both were chasing seventh spot in the Premier League; it’s been six games in the league already this season, and neither have a win between them.
The club website themselves have hinted that they may rest a few a players, stating that the Hornets are “likely to make changes”.
The site reads: “The Hornets are likely to make changes from Saturday, and the likes of Daryl Janmaat, Nathaniel Chalobah, Christian Kabasele and Andre Gray could all feature.”
