Match Preview

Graham worry for Watford Watford manager Malky Mackay is waiting on the fitness of key striker Danny Graham ahead of the visit of Leeds. Graham - who scored four goals in the first two games of the season - was left on the bench for the midweek Carling Cup defeat to Notts County but came on for the final 15 minutes as the Hornets looked to find an equaliser. But Graham pulled his groin in having a late shot on goal and is a serious doubt to face Leeds. Mackay was also without captain John Eustace, Lee Hodson and Martin Taylor in midweek as they recovered from niggles and he is hoping they can all return against Simon Grayson`s side. England Under-21 goalkeeper Scott Loach will also return to the starting line-up after he was rested against County. Former Middlesbrough midfielder Josh Walker returns after being cup-tied on Tuesday night, while on-loan Birmingham man Jordon Mutch is also available again. Leeds boss Grayson is set to make changes to his side. Grayson opted to leave the likes of goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel and on-loan forward Sanchez Watt on the bench for the 2-1 Carling Cup defeat to Leicester on Tuesday. Both of those players are expected to return to the starting line-up, while midfielder Lloyd Sam, who was left out the squad completely on Tuesday, is also set to return. Striker duo Billy Paynter (shin) and Robert Snodgrass (knee) are still ruled out as is long-term absentee Patrick Kisnorbo (knee). Defender Ben Parker is back in training after recovering from an Achilles injury and may be included in the squad.

Match Report

Naylor caps landmark in style Leeds captain Richard Naylor marked his 450th career appearance with the only goal at Vicarage Road as the visitors ended Watford's unbeaten start to the new npower Championship season. The 33-year-old was in the right place at the right time after just six minutes to prod home the 45th goal of his career and keep Leeds' fine start to the campaign going. The former Ipswich man's strike was one of just a few noteworthy incidents, with quality in short supply. Large parts of the game were spent with both sides trading long balls and, short of a handful of effort from just inside the area, Watford rarely looked like recovering from their early setback. There was no place in Leeds' starting line-up for new signing Ross McCormack, with Simon Grayson opting to select the same side that beat Millwall last weekend, and it reaped instant rewards as United took an early lead. Scott Loach tipped Luciano Becchio's header over the bar but, after the home side failed to deal with the subsequent corner and crosses into the box, Naylor was on hand to tap in from close range after Troy Deeney allowed Bradley Johnson and Becchio to get the better of him. With Watford missing four-goal Danny Graham to injury, Deeney was given a first league start in attack, and some good play from him allowed the Hornets to create a chance for John Eustace - but the skipper only able to fire wildly over the bar. Deeney's striker partner Marvin Sordell then put an opportunity wide, as did Sanchez Watt at the other end, while Naylor had to earn his money in front of his own goal as he blocked a low drive from Stephen McGinn. Leeds lost Fede Bessone to injury at the break and replaced him with Andy Hughes, but there was little for him and his fellow defenders, or the Watford back four, to do throughout the second period. Jordan Mutch drilled wide for Watford and Becchio nearly got on the end of an arrowed cross from Johnson, and not even the introduction of Scotland winger McCormack could liven things up. The winger, signed from Cardiff on Friday, did bring a save out of Loach with a deflected effort, but Leeds were rarely threatened and, on the rare occasions Watford did advance forward, Kasper Schmeichel's precision handling kept them at bay.
