Watford's Ikechi Anya and Fernando Forestieri are doubts for tomorrow’s Championship match at Yeovil Town

Ikechi Anya and Fernando Forestieri are doubts for tomorrow’s Championship match at Yeovil Town and Beppe Sannino says players “have to be 100 per cent” to implement Watford’s game plan.
The duo missed the 0-0 draw against Queens Park Rangers and are rated 50/50 for the trip to Huish Park.
Sannino explained after Sunday’s stalemate: “Forestieri had a knock on his knee and Ikechi had a tight groin so it was precautionary. So we have to assess them daily.”
He continued: “When you play this kind of physical game, you have to be 100 per cent. Forestieri was great in his last game but he was fouled a lot and had a lot of knocks.
“Ikechi also was tired and I prefer to have players who can do 90 minutes rather than be substituted, which changes the game.”
Daniel Pudil will definitely miss the match with a hamstring injury while Davide Faraoni is also ruled out with an ankle problem.
Almen Abdi (foot) Essaid Belkalem (ankle) and Tommie Hoban (ankle) are all long-term absentees.
