Match Preview

Duo back for Hornets Fernando Forestieri and Daniel Pudil return to boost Watford ahead of their home clash against Reading. Striker Forestieri and wing-back Pudil have been sidelined with respective knee and hamstring injuries of late. However, it is not all good news for manager Giuseppe Sannino with Marco Cassetti having joined the club's lengthy list of absentees which includes Ikechi Anya (groin), Almen Abdi (foot), Davide Faraoni, Essaid Belkalem and Tommie Hoban (all ankle). Alexander Merkel has been granted international clearance and is available to make his Hornets debut but fellow new signing Mathias Ranegie is lacking match fitness. Jobi McAnuff could make a return to the Reading squad. Winger McAnuff has missed the last two matches with a foot problem, but of all the Royals' injured players he is the closest to returning to action having resumed training this week. Boss Nigel Adkins can also add defender Michael Hector to his squad after he returned from a successful loan spell in the Scottish Premiership with Aberdeen. But Nick Blackman picked up a knock against Brighton last weekend and is set to join Wayne Bridge, Sean Morrison (both knee), Chris Baird (ankle), Hal Robson-Kanu (calf), Mikele Leigertwood (ankle), Jason Roberts (hip) and Jem Karacan (cruciate) on the sidelines.
