Hornets hit by fever ahead of Cup clash

Watford have been afflicted by a fever that has swept through their squad ahead of Saturday's FA Cup third round match against Burton.

Heurelho Gomes and Jose Holebas have been struck down by illness and will not play, but it is hoped that second string keeper Costel Pantilimon will recover.

Brice Dja Djedje could make his debut off the bench after recovering from a foot injury and will be joined among the replacements by Ben Watson, who has been missing due to personal reasons.

Noordin Amrabat is out of the African Cup of Nations through injury, Juan Camilo Zuniga picked up a problem in the warm-up prior to facing Spurs and Valon Behrami was injured against Stoke.

Provisional squad: Pantilimon, Zuniga, Cathcart, Prodl, Britos, Watson, Dja Djedje, Kabasele, Kaboul, Mason, Capoue, Guedioura, Amrabat, Okaka, Doucoure, Kenedy, Ighalo, Sinclair, Deeney.
