Watford are currently drawing 1-1 with Wigan Athletic at half-time at the DW Stadium.

Wigan had several excellent chances in a first half where they were the better side before Lewis McGugan opened the scoring in the 36th minute with a low shot from the corner of the area.

However, the lead lasted just four minutes as another attack down the Wigan left ended with Jean Beausejour heading in from close range after Manuel Almunia had saved his initial effort.

The Hornets made one change to their starting XI as Essaid Belkalem started at right-sided centre half in place of Lloyd Doyley.

Doyley was one of four centre halves on a Hornets bench which also included Samba Diakite.
