Watford will be without defender Marco Cassetti for the next two matches and centre back partner Gabriele Angella will also face a ban if he doesn't behave himself against Millwall.

Cassetti picked up his tenth booking of the season for tripping Michael Tonge during last night's 3-0 victory over Leeds United.

Ten cautions in a season results in an automatic ban if it is before the cut-off point, which is this Sunday.

Angella is currently on nine bookings so another caution at The Den on Saturday will mean a two-match suspension.

If a player receives 15 bookings in a season then he receives a further suspension and 20 would lead to a meeting with the Regulatory Commission.

Think we have good cover for Marco, however wouldnt like to lose Gabrielle for 2 games in the run in.

I wouldn't mind but half of them should never have been bookings in the first place. In no way are Watford a dirty team, not with the pundits, not with fans or management of opposing teams yet I'd swear that in the echelons of the F.A. they have their own strategy room specifically to stop the hornets in their tracks. Our disciplinary record makes poor reading but is solely due to the softness of decisions against us.

ref books Marco last night but the tackle on Faroini was a straight red, we have certainly not had same leniency with refs

Holloway is saying he hopes Millwall will 'terrify Watford in a nice kind of way'. Will someone please tell Beppe how important it that we make him eat his words on Saturday.

If he is fit I would like to see Fitz Hall play against Millwall.
A strong player and personality. Please not Belkallen.

Play Hoban and give him some game time. Would really miss Angella. Would be so nice to get one over Hollaway. With Troy in the form he is in, think we wil have too much for them, especially as their home form isnt brilliant.

Sorry but I have to say that one of the worst aspects of this season has been the number of stupid fouls that we give away. Yes there are times when the ref certainly doesn't seem to treat both sides equally but how many times do we give away free kicks for totally unnecessary fouls in danger areas. Much as I think he is a good player, Ekstrand always seems to be the biggest culprit.

What has that got to do with Cassetti being suspended!

He's got ten bookings for mainly stupid fouls.

You will have to talk very slowly to Hollyhead and not use long words as otherwise what you say will just go over his slaphead.
