Charlton V Watford - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.

Duo set for Addicks bow Rob Hulse and Abdul Razak will be added to the Charlton squad for the visit of Watford. Striker Hulse has joined the Addicks on a three-month loan from QPR and midfielder Razak arrives on a similar deal from Manchester City. Boss Chris Powell moved for Hulse after top scorer Yann Kermorgant was ruled out for three months after breaking an ankle in training. Razak will also be in the reckoning for an immediate debut after skipper Johnnie Jackeon limped off against Blackburn on Saturday with a hamstring injury. Striker Ricardo Fuller missed the 1-1 draw with Rovers after he was sent home with a virus, so he will need a fitness test. Defenders Matt Taylor and Rhoys Wiggins are still sidelined with foot injuries. Watford welcome back Matej Vydra. The striker missed Saturday's impressive 3-2 victory at Huddersfield with a knee problem, but he has now returned to training and faces a battle to win back his place at The Valley. Otherwise, manager Gianfranco Zola pretty much has an unchanged squad to select from. Forward Alex Geijo has returned to training after his groin injury and could make the bench. However, Nyron Nosworthy (hamstring), John Eustace (back), Prince Buaben (thigh), Geoffrey Mujangi Bia (groin), Ikechi Anya (ankle) and Cristian Battocchio (groin) all remain sidelined. Fitz Hall, Tommie Hoban and matchwinner Troy Deeney were all handed their first starts of the season at the Galpharm Stadium, and they will hope to keep hold of their places as the Hornets aim to record back-to-back league wins for the first time this term.
