Match Preview

Dyche ponders options Watford boss Sean Dyche will weigh up whether to keep faith with an unchanged XI for a fourth successive match as Leicester come to town. Dyche watched his side claim a battling point from what was a below-par performance in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Nottingham Forest, albeit with the game coming amid difficult circumstances on an emotional day at the City Ground following the passing of Reds owner Nigel Doughty. Forest also included three new signings in their line-up and took the lead with their first goal in eight home matches, before the Hornets showed plenty of character to claim a valuable point through Troy Deeney. It is for those reasons that Dyche, with no new injury or suspension problems to contend with, may opt to turn once again to an unchanged XI. The likes of Chris Iwelumo, Mark Yeates and Prince Buaben are all pushing for recalls should he wish to freshen up his line-up. Neil Danns will come back into the reckoning for Leicester. Danns served a one-match suspension as the Foxes beat promotion contenders Cardiff 2-1 at the King Power Stadium on Saturday but the midfielder returns to contention against the Hornets. The African Nations Cup reached its climax on Sunday night. Sol Bamba was on the losing side as Ivory Coast were beaten on penalties by outsiders Zambia. Bamba and fellow defender John Pantsil are highly unlikely to be back in time to be involved on Tuesday night but they should be available for selection against Norwich in the fifth round of the FA Cup at the weekend. Midfielder Andy King (foot) and strikers Martyn Waghorn (hamstring), Darius Vassell and Jeffery Schlupp (both knee) remain out.

Match Report

Forsyth out-foxes Leicester Substitute Craig Forsyth snatched a late winner as Watford extended their unbeaten run to four games with a 3-2 victory over Leicester. Adrian Mariappa had headed the Hornets in front but two quick goals from David Nugent turned the npower Championship game in Leicester's favour. Sean Murray's deflected free-kick hauled Watford level, and although the visitors had dominated the second half, Forsyth's strike stole the points. Watford were forced to make one change from the side which drew with Nottingham Forest on Saturday as Troy Deeney missed out with a hamstring strain. Chris Iwelumo came in. Leicester named an unchanged line-up following an impressive win against Cardiff. The Hornets took the lead from the first attack of the game. Murray sent over a free-kick from the left and defender Mariappa - a transfer target for a host of Premier League clubs in January - powered a header into the roof of the net. Joe Garner had the chance to make it two but his effort was well saved by Kasper Schmeichel and Leicester levelled from the breakaway. Jermaine Beckford played the ball out to Nugent on the left and he cut inside before firing into the bottom corner. The same combination put the Foxes in front in the 18th minute. Beckford laid the ball off to his strike partner and Nugent's blistering drive gave Scott Loach no chance. The frantic pace continued as Watford equalised after 33 minutes. Matt Mills brought down Alex Kacaniklic just outside the area and youngster Murray stepped up to score his first senior goal, albeit with the aid of a deflection which deceived Schmeichel. Hornets defender Lee Hodson brought a decent save from the keeper and Murray was inches away from his second before the break. Leicester defender Wes Morgan should have done better with a free header at the start of the second half and Beckford spurned a golden chance to restore the Foxes lead as he somehow headed Sean St Ledger's cross wide from four yards. The visitors were on top as Beckford did well to turn and get a shot in. Loach spilled his shot but Nugent was not quick enough to react and the danger was cleared. Watford's response came from Jonathan Hogg but his shot from a corner cleared the crossbar, while at the other end Paul Gallagher did well to get in a shot from a tight angle but he was denied by Loach. John Eustace brought a fine save from Schmeichel with a fierce drive from the edge of the area in the 78th minute and shortly afterwards they were ahead. Eustace picked out substitute Forsyth with a raking pass and he rifled the ball past the goalkeeper. Leicester's best chance of an equaliser fell to Richie Wellens but he blazed over after good work from Gallagher. Watford full-back Lloyd Doyley was sent off in injury time for bringing down Beckford as he bore down on goal.
