Lloyd Doyley was brought off during yesterday’s Capital One Cup clash against Stevenage as a precaution after the Hornets defender felt tightness in his hamstring.

Doyley was making his first appearance of the campaign but lasted just 29 minutes before being replaced by Joel Ekstrand.

Watford’s head of medical Marco Ceserini said after the game: “Lloyd felt some tightness in his hamstring so he decided not to carry on because it could cause it to get worse.

“He was brought off as a precaution and we will have an assessment with him tomorrow (Wednesday).”

A sensible decision, both to protect the injury and not to weaken the defence. Hoban slotted into the right back position, and made good use of the extra freedom to go forward when the play allowed.

Err no it wasn't, we scored a goal and had plenty of other chances after the 29th minute, Hoban covered the position well and as pointed out managed to get forward a few times, think this is you trying to justify your comment on a previous thread about Doyley being a 1st team regular this season, still can't see it with the other options we have.

I think VO reason comment is called sarcasm or tongue in cheek!

First team or not first team, Doyley was very much involved in the game up to that point and was playing well.
