Match Preview

Suspended duo back for Hornets Watford welcome back Daniel Pudil and Nathaniel Chalobah for the visit of second-placed Leicester. Both missed last weekend's injury-time defeat at Blackburn through suspension, with left-back Pudil's three-match ban being reduced to one upon appeal. That means both he and midfielder Chalobah return to face the Foxes, although the former is just one booking away from his fifth of the season and an automatic one-match suspension. Midfielder Almen Abdi also missed out at Ewood Park with a back injury but has returned to training and hopes to be in contention. However, skipper John Eustace (back), Piccoli Neuton (ankle), Nyron Nosworthy and Prince Buaben (both hamstring) continue to miss out. The Hornets will be looking to get back to winning ways after back-to-back defeats while they have lost three of their last four. Ritchie De Laet is suspended for Leicester. The former Manchester United trainee will serve a one-match ban at Vicarage Road after receiving his fifth yellow card of the season during the home defeat to Crystal Palace last weekend. Teenager Liam Moore is expected to replace De Laet at right-back. Striker Jamie Vardy is struggling to overcome a calf problem and is a doubt. Midfielder Neil Danns and forward Paul Gallagher could make rare appearances in the squad on Saturday. The pair have made just one league outing between them this season having fallen down the pecking order at the midlands club. "We'll travel with 18 and he (Danns) will be one of them," said City boss Nigel Pearson at his pre-match press conference. "Vardy is touch and go at the moment, so we could see both Gallagher and Danns. Vardy had a kick on the calf which is struggling to settle down, but we'll review him again before we make a decision. "We have a small-ish squad and players who aren't currently involved need to work very hard. If they are involved and get their opportunity, then the ball is in their court."
