Match Preview

Same again for Hornets Watford manager Malky Mackay will pick from an unchanged squad as his in-form side prepare to welcome Scunthorpe. Mackay saw his unfancied outfit reach third place in the Championship with an impressive 2-1 win at home to Ipswich in midweek and could name the same starting XI. Marvin Sordell scored his sixth goal in his last eight games to see off Roy Keane`s side and he will continue to partner Danny Graham while youngster Michael Bryan will hope to keep his place. Bryan started for the first time this season in place of the injured Don Cowie and will battle it out with Will Buckley for the role against the Iron. Cowie is a definite absentee as he begins a six-week spell on the sidelines after suffering medial knee ligament damage at Portsmouth last weekend. Midfielder Ross Jenkins has recovered from an ankle injury and will hope to make the matchday 18. Scunthorpe boss Ian Baraclough will be without defender Rob Jones . The towering centre-back displaced the broken bone in his hand during Tuesday's thrilling 3-2 win at Preston and was replaced at half-time by Michael Raynes. Former Stockport defender Raynes is set to earn a starting role at Vicarage Road but on-loan Burnley midfielder Kevin McDonald looks certain to remain sidelined. He has returned to Turf Moor to receive treatment on a back problem suffered during his first day's training with Baraclough's side. Iron goalkeeper Joe Murphy, who was withdrawn with 17 minutes of Tuesday's match remaining because of a groin problem, has not yet been ruled out of the Vicarage Road clash.

Match Report

Hornets stung by Scunthorpe Scunthorpe picked up a second npower Championship win of the week to cause an upset as Watford's fine form came to an end in a 2-0 defeat. Cliff Byrne and Martyn Woolford scored either side of half-time to lift the Iron into 14th place as rookie boss Ian Baraclough followed up his first win as manager at Preston in midweek with another victory. Woolford had the first shot in anger for the visitors in a bright start but it was well blocked before Michael O'Connor's corner was well met by David Mirfin but his header was easily held by Scott Loach. The visitors continued to impress and Loach had to be at his best minutes later when he got down sharply to parry Chris Dagnall's shot away. And the Iron made the most of their bright start when Byrne broke the deadlock in the 28th minute. Another O'Connor set-piece was only cleared as far as the edge of the area and Byrne drilled in a low strike which arrowed into the bottom corner. The hosts responded well and youngster Michael Bryan saw a stinging long-range drive turned over by debutant goalkeeper Tony Warner as the Hornets looked for a response before half-time. There was a second goal before the break but it came from the away side through the impressive Woolford. Byrne crossed from the left in first-half stoppage time and when the ball was not hacked clear, Woolford was on hand to swing his left boot and send the ball arcing past Loach and into the far corner. Watford strikers Marvin Sordell and Danny Graham had been quiet in the first period but combined at the start of the second period when Graham got a shot in which Warner was right behind. Sordell then climbed well to flick a header wide of the near post before Freddie Sears forced a fine save from Loach at the other end after a fine solo run from inside his own half. Stephen McGinn and Jordon Mutch both went close to pulling a goal back for the hosts before centre-half Adrian Mariappa had the best chance in the dying moments but saw his header clear the crossbar.
