Head of medical Marco Cesarini says Daniel Tozser and Fernando Forestieri missed yesterday’s friendly draw with Udinese as a precaution while Sean Murray is expected to return to first-team training this week.

Forestieri has been absent since the Hornets’ first UK friendly against Shrewsbury Town where he suffered a cut to his Achilles.

Tozser was named on the substitute’s bench against Udinese but didn’t feature as he recovers from a stamp that forced him off during Wednesday’s friendly with Coventry City.

Murray suffered a dead leg against the Sky Blues but Cesarini said yesterday the midfielder was expected to return to training this week.
