Grayson set to stick with same sideHuddersfield manager Simon Grayson is not expected to make any changes for the home game with Watford.Grayson has no new injury or suspension problems as his high-flying Terriers chase a fourth successive league win.Central defender Joel Lynch sits out the second game of his three-match ban following his dismissal in the recent win at Sheffield Wednesday so Anthony Gerrard will continue alongside Peter Clarke.Midfielder Oscar Gobern remains a long-term absentee and winger Adam Hammill, on loan from Wolves, remains sidelined with a knee injury, sustained in the recent home win over Derby, that has kept him out of the last two matches.Striker Sean Scannell returned to the substitutes' bench for Monday night's win at Blackpool following a hamstring injury and is pressing for a recall.Grayson's side will go top of the table with victory if Brighton lose to Birmingham.Jonathan Hogg returns to contention for Watford.The midfielder missed last weekend's 2-2 draw against Bristol City due to illness but is back in the fold to face the second-placed Terriers.Captain John Eustace continues to miss out with his troublesome back injury, as do Alex Geijo (groin), Prince Buaben (thigh), Geoffrey Mujangi Bia (groin), Ikechi Anya (ankle) and Cristian Battocchio (groin).Striker Troy Deeney made his first appearance of the season as a second-half substitute against the Robins last Saturday and will again be involved.Defender Fitz Hall also stepped off the bench for the first time having struggled for fitness since his summer arrival at the Hertfordshire club.The point against Bristol City ended a four-match losing streak in all competitions but the Hornets still remain winless since late August.
