Fitness concerns for Hornets
Watford duo Don Cowie and Nathan Ellington will need fitness tests ahead of the Vicarage Road clash with Blackpool.
Midfielder Cowie has a hamstring problem but should be available after returning to training, while Ellington is struggling to shake off a knee problem.
However, Ellington's future is still in the balance as Blackburn continue to monitor his situation, although Reading target Tommy Smith will play if no deal is agreed after he starred at Nottingham Forest in midweek.
Winger Jobi McAnuff is set to recover from a minor knock.
