Watford: Buckley in contention

Will Buckley strengthened his claims for a Watford debut at Cardiff on Sunday with a goal for the reserves against Ipswich.
The winger joined the Hornets from Rochdale in January but has been sidelined since for six weeks by a thigh strain.

Buckley was an unused substitute in Tuesday's win over Ipswich's first-team and then proved his fitness with a run-out against their second string yesterday.
His goal which set Watford's reserves on their way to a 2-0 victory was a well taken effort past former England goalkeeper Richard Wright in the first-half of the game before Lewis Young added a second after the interval.
