Sean Murray is fit for Watford’s Capital One Cup first round clash with Stevenage tomorrow but Mathias Ranegie has joined Ikechi Anya and Craig Cathcart on the Hornets’ injury list.

Murray suffered a dead leg in the pre-season fixture with Coventry City and missed Saturday’s Championship opener with Bolton Wanderers.

However, he is available for tomorrow’s clash at Broadhall Way.

Swedish striker Ranegie has a groin injury and will miss the game as a precaution while Anya remains out with a knee problem.

Cathcart (knee) is a long-term absentee as are young strikers Bernard Mensah (knee) and Uche Ikpeazu (ankle).

Cristian Battocchio and Alex Jakubiak will miss the contest as they have been called up to the Italian Under-21 and Scotland Under-19 sides respectively.

Midfielder Keith Andrews, who wasn’t eligible to play against Bolton Wanderers due to the terms of his loan, could make his Hornets debut against Boro.

Ranegie will leave this week, which is good news ... I'm his biggest fan but if he goes we know Deeney stays!

I'd like to see Fabrinni start in the Abdi role, just behind Ighalo and Fessi. He's always looked more like an attacking midfielder than a Striker to me. We may even see Munari for a longer spell.

Isn't it nice to have a squad where none of the 'back-ups' are too much of a step down in quality? Roll on Wednesday night.

Fabbrini right wing back - err dont think so. I would start him as part of a midfield 3 with Munari and Andrews. with murray to come on at some point

With Anya injured I think he may change the formation slightly. If he wants to rest Paredes and Pudil that leaves us with no one who's familiar with the wing back role. He may want to have a look at Dyer as a wing back but who would play right wing back? Could be Doherty and Doyley as full backs.
