Hornets hit by bans
Daniel Pudil and Nathaniel Chalobah will miss Watford's trip to Blackburn through suspension.
Both were given their marching orders during Tuesday's clash at Cardiff, meaning the Hornets were forced to play the final 18 minutes with just nine men as the hosts went on to grab an injury-time winner to triumph 2-1. Left-back Pudil now serves a three-match suspension for his straight red card while Chalobah, dismissed for two bookable offences, is punished with a one-game ban. Elsewhere, skipper John Eustace (back), Piccoli Neuton (ankle), Nyron Nosworthy and Prince Buaben (both hamstring) continue to miss out. But there is better news regarding Geoffrey Mujangi Bia and Joel Ekstrand, with the pair back in training following groin and ankle injuries. However, it remains to be seen whether either will be involved at Ewood Park.
