Heidar Helguson is expected to miss the Hornets next two league games with the calf injury he picked up against Leicester City last week.

Helguson had an MRI scan on Wednesday and Watford manager Malky Mackay had hoped the striker could have played during today's 1-1 draw with Reading, but the Scot has confirmed the 32-year-old will have another scan on Monday.

Mackay said: “We didn't like the reaction we saw this morning and that being the case there will be another scan done on him, so I doubt there will be any chance of Heidar playing this week.”
