Match Preview

Ankle woes leave Neuton sidelined Watford will be without Piccoli Neuton for the visit of Peterborough while fellow centre-back Nyron Nosworthy will be assessed. Neuton started the club's 2-1 defeat to Middlesbrough, their last match before the international break, but has rolled his ankle in training and will miss out against bottom of the table Posh. Nosworthy, who has sat out of late with a hamstring injury, enjoyed a goalscoring comeback for Jamaica and his fitness will now be evaluated upon his return from his international exploits. Manager Gianfranco Zola has options in attack with Fernando Forestieri back after his one-match suspension, while Matej Vydra is also available having seen his red card against Boro rescinded upon appeal. However, skipper John Eustace (back) and fellow long-term absentee Prince Buaben (hamstring) remain sidelined. On-loan striker Saido Berahino could be handed his first start for Peterborough at Vicarage Road. West Brom teenager Berahino has made two second half substitute appearances for Posh since his recent arrival at London Road on a three-month deal and boss Darren Ferguson insists the 19-year-old is closing in on a place in his starting XI. "Saido is a very good player who could fit into any system we try. He's a lovely young man whose attitude as well as his ability has impressed me since he's been with us," said Ferguson at his pre-match press conference on Thursday. "He's a first-team squad member at a Premier League side so his ability can be taken for granted and he is certainly knocking on our door for a start. We are lucky to have a good variety of striker at the club, and Lee Tomlin and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing are also pushing for a start." If Berahino is given his full debut it will be at the expense of either Emile Sinclair or Tyrone Barnett. Midfielder Grant McCann (knee) should be fit despite his recent withdrawal from the Northern Ireland squad. Ferguson is expected to stick with the 3-5-2 formation that delivered victories at Hull and Barnsley in the last two away games.
