Cleverley banned against Magpies
Cleverley was sent off in the 2-2 draw with Scunthorpe last weekend for a rash challenge on Michael O'Connor and begins a three-match ban. Winger Will Buckley will have to wait a little longer to make his debut as he is still struggling with a thigh strain. The 20-year-old, who joined the Hornets from League Two side Rochdale in January, was not fit enough for the reserves' win over Peterborough this week and is still trying to regain fitness. Malky Mackay's side go into the clash hoping to preserve their good home form which has seen them go unbeaten in their last three matches at Vicarage Road without conceding a goal.
