Kightly set for Hornets bow
Michael Kightly is set to make his Watford debut at home to Crystal Palace.
The winger arrived on a month-long loan from Wolves earlier this week and will go straight into the frame to face the Eagles.
Manager Sean Dyche has virtually a fully-fit squad for the encounter and boasts plenty of options as he looks to secure what would be only a second home victory this season.
Left-back Carl Dickinson missed the club's 4-0 defeat at Southampton last time out due to illness but has now fully recovered following the two-week international break.
David Mirfin replaced Dickinson to make his league debut at St Mary's, Watford's only change from their 2-1 victory over Millwall.
Defender Lee Hodson (knee) is fit once again and will battle it out to make the Hornets matchday 16, but midfielder Stephen McGinn (knee) continues to miss out and is the only absentee.
