Match Preview

Cowie sits out for Watford Watford will be missing winger Don Cowie for the visit of Roy Keane`s Ipswich side to Vicarage Road. Cowie lasted just 23 minutes of the 3-2 defeat at Portsmouth at the weekend before coming off with a knee injury and the Scot is set for a spell out of the side. He was replaced by Stephen McGinn at Fratton Park and he is in the driving seat to start after scoring, although Michael Bryan also impressed after coming on and is another option for manager Malky Mackay. Midfielder Ross Jenkins missed the trip south with an ankle injury which could sideline him again while reserve goalkeeper Rene Gilmartin is fit again after a minor thigh injury. Jack Colback is in line for his second Ipswich debut. Colback was on loan from Sunderland last season - scoring at Vicarage Road - and could be back in the side again after rejoining late last week. Fellow loanee, Celtic defender Darren O'Dea, is absent after he had knee surgery on a problem that has dogged him since September. He now faces six weeks on the sidelines. And Mark Kennedy will also be missing after he injured his hamstring at the weekend. However Shane O'Connor (hamstring), Damien Delaney and Luciano Civelli (both knee) are all back in contention after using the international break to get back to full fitness. Keane could make changes following the disappointing 2-1 home defeat to Coventry on Saturday, with David Norris, Connor Wickham and Tamas Priskin all hoping to return.

Match Report

Marvellous Marvin downs Ipswich Marvin Sordell continued his excellent recent form as Watford beat Ipswich 2-1 to move into third in the npower Championship table. Roy Keane's visitors bossed the opening 40 minutes of an open game at a freezing Vicarage Road before the Hornets took control with two goals in two minutes before the break. Stephen McGinn opened the scoring and 19-year-old Sordell then struck his sixth league goal in his last eight appearances to leave Ipswich with a mountain to climb. David Norris headed in for the visitors after the break but Watford held on for an important three points. Ipswich's Jason Scotland had the first chance of the night but blasted over from former Watford striker Tamas Priskin's flick on before the Hungarian raced onto a long ball but failed to get a shot away. Keane's men looked menacing on the break and Scotland almost gave them the lead after a lovely turn but placed his curling shot a foot wide of the far post. Unlike previous Watford sides, Mackay's men were perhaps guilty of overplaying at times and youngster Michael Bryan almost put them in trouble when an ambitious pass on the edge of his own area was intercepted. Danny Graham then created the first chance for the hosts with a direct run down the left but his pass inside was easily cut out by Brian Murphy in the Town goal. Graham was then narrowly wide with a header before McGinn struck the 41st-minute opener. A long throw from the right was headed on at the near post by Martin Taylor and the midfielder was left with the simple task of volleying home from the six-yard line. The hosts were buoyant and doubled the lead just two minutes later through Sordell. Andrew Taylor crossed from the left and the Championship's young player of the month rose magnificently to flick a brilliant header over Murphy and into the top corner. Watford began the second half in similar style, and Lloyd Doyley should have found a team-mate after bursting into the area. Priskin was then replaced - to the delight of the home fans - by giant teenager Connor Wickham as Keane looked for a response. And captain Norris handed the away side a lifeline in the 69th minute with a fabulous header. Watford goalkeeper Scott Loach punched away a set-piece but was on the floor as Norris arched in a header from fully 20 yards with two defenders on the line. And Keane's men almost grabbed an equaliser in the dying moments when substitute Ronan Murray touched in a Grant Leadbitter set-piece but the linesman's flag was already raised.
