Matej Vydra or Fernando Forestieri dilemma remains for Watford manager Gianfranco Zola

First published in Watford FC News by

It is the selection quandary which Gianfranco Zola has had to deal with all season and which remains as relevant as ever tonight; who will partner Troy Deeney up front? Will it be top scorer Matej Vydra or the in-form Fernando Forestieri?

No matter what decision he makes, the Hornets head coach believes it will not have a detrimental impact on his side’s chances tonight.

“The good thing is whatever decision I make it is not going to be a mistake,” Zola joked yesterday (Thursday) afternoon. “I can close my eyes and point to one name or the other and it will be a good choice.”

Vydra has struggled for form in recent weeks and has failed to find the net in his last ten appearances for the Hornets.

It is in stark contrast to Forestieri, who has scored five goals in his last eight matches and produced an outstanding display against Blackburn Rovers last Saturday, as the Hornets confirmed their play-off spot.

One of them is likely to start tonight’s game on the substitutes’ bench but Zola insists both players understand the team comes first.

Speaking after Saturday’s 4-0 win, Zola stated: “All the players are very important but this is not about Fernando Forestieri, Matej Vydra or Gianfranco Zola; it is about Watford Football Club.

“So it might be in the next game I play someone else. But they are not playing for themselves they are playing for Watford.

“If we win and we get promotion then it will be fantastic for all of us.”

Vydra and Forestieri joined Watford last summer on loan from Udinese.

Forestieri quickly impressed and his energy and flair stood out in the early part of the season before he found first-team opportunities harder to come by due to the form of Vydra.

The little Argentine made his move to Vicarage Road permanent in January by signing a five-and-a-half year contract.

Zola believes Forestieri has “improved a lot” during the season and added: “His main quality is that he protects the ball and in a one-versus-one situation he can be very good.”

The Italian continued: “He has improved a lot and you can see that he is more effective for the team. He has set up goals and has scored many goals in the last few weeks. He can be a terrific player that is for sure.”

Where are you playing Pudil here? If left mid, who is right? I can't see a change in formation though I would love to see Fessi 'in the hole'. I think the protection on the flanks will be required to stop the crosses tonight with Chris Wood up top for Leicester so can't see past Pudil and Anya playing mening it is one of Vydra or Fessi.

I completely see people's point (on the other thread) of Fessi being more of a 'game-changer' and Vydra being more effective from the start but I couldn't drop Fessi the way he has been playing recently. He created everything against Blackburn.

Having space behind is one thing but MV has been playing too deep recently to get into those spaces.

Got to be FF for me he's really hit form and he's creating so much for others. You seen how many ppl he can take out of a game when he gets the ball turns and runs at defences he opened up b'burn so many times. With vydra teams arnt playing as high up the pitch as they were this takes him out the game as most goals have come from teams being high up the pitch and countering them.

The reason he has been coming deep to get the ball is because teams now sit off us. Leicester surely cant do this tonight which means they push up and Vydra has space to run into and does not need to go so deep. If we cant play all 3 (TD FF MV) then, in theory we should start with MV and bring FF on as an impact player if needed. I guess it depends if Zola wants to play to hit them on the counter or if he is going to take the game to them. If it's the latter then FF will start

Leicester have yet to concede more than 2 goals in a match this season. Despite looking like a high scoring game on paper, this could be very tight and down to a single goal. Fessi is bang on form. As is Deeney. If Vydra can be accommodated into the starting XI then so be it, but I'm not sure it would work.

We will start with FF, Leicester will struggle to cope with him as a consequence they will probably be down to 10 men before half time and then Matej will score twice in the second half.
Sorted!!

as a hull fan i say good luck tonight whatever the outcome this has to be the most twists and turns i have ever seen in the championship top and bottom if you dont go up auto (fingers crossed you dont) you will storm the playoffs and it would be deserved as for your fans who say you deserve to be second due to the goals you score and call hull dull city the table does not lie we are there of merit and i would say the same if you go up automaticly too you are a good outfit with quality strikers but your achilies heel is just the same as hulls not putting your chances away and winning them games you should of also as hull. injuries to key players is a factor too.just 1 question (this is not a dig or sarcastic) but what happens next season if you dont go up with your loan signings ect. it just i think if you get to keep them you must be odds on next season to go up. anyway hope to see you in the prem next season fingers crossed.

Thanks mate, and you're right, whoever goes up will deserve it, no doubt about that. Both ourselves and Palace have had many an opportunity to claim 2nd as our own, in fact even top spot, as none of us could capitalise on Cardiffs poor form either. Would be crazy if it did go down to the wire next weekend, not sure any WFC fans (of my age anyway) will have witnessed anything quite like it. The nerves, the not knowing, the reliance on another result. Ecstasy to despair in a heartbeat, and vice versa! Seen it unfold on tv every season but not in real life. With regards to our loan players we should sign some of them permanently, some may depart and others may come in again. We won't see wholesale loanees from one team again next season regardless of whether the FL manages to 'close the loophole'. But we now have owners with a fantastic scouting network and the ability to transfer players between their clubs for undisclosed fee (i.e £1). Anyway, enough of the nice-ities, I hope Barnsley give you a paste-ing tomorrow and then you bottle it against Cardiff!

Well... The headline can now go.... As with Fessi, dropped back to the bench. Zola has spoken. Mr Vydra, it really is over to you now... Get them goal scoring boots on sharpish, lad.

The only reason I can see why he's gone for MV over FF is that if Leicester score and shut up shop and snaffle MV, FF would be an impact and can play in tight situations and perhaps open them up.
