Match Preview

Dyer poised for Town return Kieron Dyer is in line for his second home debut for Ipswich against Watford on Tuesday night. Midfielder Dyer started his career in Suffolk before joining Newcastle in 1999 and returned on loan from West Ham on Friday. He started at Leeds on Saturday and will again be involved. Captain David Norris will be missing as he completes his two-game ban but Jimmy Bullard returned from a hamstring injury at Elland Road and will keep his place. Mark Kennedy - who can play in midfield or at left-back - will be out for several weeks with a hamstring injury so Darren O`Dea will continue at full-back. Goalkeeper Brian Murphy has stepped up his comeback from a broken ankle after coming out of plaster but Marton Fulop will continue. Watford will be without defender Lee Hodson for the trip to Suffolk. The young right-back left the field on a stretcher on Saturday after he was caught by a late challenge from Sheffield United striker Darius Henderson but scans have revealed that he did not break his ankle. He will be out for a while as he recovers from heavy bruising, however, so Adam Thompson will return to the side. Former Hornet Henderson was sent-off for the challenge while United also had another ex-Watford player Lee Williamson dismissed for an aerial challenge on Lloyd Doyley. Doyley escaped injury and will start but on-loan Manchester United midfielder Danny Drinkwater is still back receiving treatment at his parent club. Midfielder Stephen McGinn is a long-term absentee with his serious knee injury as the Hornets look for three more points.

Match Report

Hornets boost play-off hopes Danny Graham scored in his fifth successive match for Watford as Malky Mackay's side boosted their npower Championship play-off hopes with a 3-0 win at Ipswich. Watford striker Graham struck his 24th goal of the season in the 61st minute after his side had spent much of the game stoutly defending an early advantage given to them by Troy Deeney, while Don Cowie slammed home a third for the visitors in stoppage time. Victory lifted the Hornets up into seventh place, within four points of the top six, while Ipswich, who have now failed to beat Watford in their last 13 attempts, slipped to a fifth defeat since Paul Jewell replaced Roy Keane as manager. Ipswich defender Gareth McAuley hit the post with a first-half header as the home side looked to cancel out Deeney's third-minute opener and continued to dominate until Graham's hammer blow, from which the Tractor Boys failed to recover. Both sides made just one change from the weekend, with midfielder Mark Kennedy returning for Ipswich and Adam Thompson replacing injured Watford defender Lee Hodson. Watford owed their early lead to Graham, whose cushioned header from the left side of the six-yard box fell for Deeney to sweep the ball home into the bottom corner from 12 yards. Ipswich's response was swift as Tamas Priskin headed over the crossbar and teenage striker Connor Wickham rifled a 30-yard shot wide. Watford midfielder Ross Jenkins then blocked Carlos Edwards' shot and Town's McAuley headed Jimmy Bullard's corner over the bar. McAuley powered another header against the post and Wickham's angled effort from inside the penalty area was well held by Watford goalkeeper Scott Loach. Hornets midfielder John Eustace failed to trouble Ipswich goalkeeper Marton Fulop with a 25-yard shot before Priskin and then Bullard fired long-range efforts wide as the home side continued to dominate up until half-time as they went in search of an equaliser. But Watford served warning they were capable of adding to their lead five minutes after break when Thompson raced on to Eustace's cut back and fired an angled drive just over. Jewell sent on recent loan signing Kieron Dyer in the 53rd minute, the former Portman Road crowd favourite making his first home appearance for the Tractor Boys since returning to the club from West Ham. But six minutes later, against the run of play, Ipswich fell further behind. Eustace again caused the damage down the left, picking out Graham with an inch-perfect ball into the penalty area, which was despatched by the former Middlesbrough forward into the bottom corner. Watford's second goal took the wind from Ipswich's sails and save for Wickham's weak shot from inside the area and Andy Drury's header from substitute Mark Kennedy's cross, the home side had nothing else to offer. And to complete their misery, Watford midfielder Cowie lashed home a third goal from 25 yards for the visitors in stoppage time.
