Defender returns for Watford


Watford boss Walter Mazzarri has a host of injury problems ahead of the clash with Stoke on Tuesday but Miguel Britos is back.

Britos has been out suspended but he is back for the clash at Stoke and both Nordin Amrabat and Adlene Guedioura are available for selection on Tuesday before flying off to the Africa Cup of Nations.

Amrabat may not feature though after picking up a knock at the weekend and Juan Zuniga will also be assessed as he too has a knock.

Stefano Okaka has missed Watford’s last four matches but is tipped to return to the squad in midweek and may even start.
