New signing Adlene Guedioura is available. Centre back Joel Ekstrand is a doubt. But the question most Watford fans will be asking during the next 24 hours is will in-form striker Odion Ighalo start up front against Fulham tomorrow night? The answer: You will just have to buy a ticket.

With 14 goals in his last ten Championship matches, Ighalo's inclusion in the Hornets' starting line-up would appear a near certainty to supporters of most clubs looking in.

But on Saturday at Leeds United - when Ighalo was rested as a precaution due to a hamstring problem - Matej Vydra showed why he was the 2013 Championship Player of the Year. His partner Troy Deeney produced a display which highlighted why he was a £10million transfer target in the summer. And most interestingly regarding selection tomorrow night, Vydra and Deeney showed a devastating level of understanding.

Vydra has played deeper at times this season but Almen Abdi performed admirably at Elland Road also and has seemingly done enough to command his place in that role.

Jokanovic was this afternoon asked if Ighalo was now fit enough to start the game at Vicarage Road. His reply gave little away.

"You must buy a ticket to find out," he said with a wry smile. "This is not the time to tell you [if he is fit enough to start]. He is fit enough to help us."

On the difficulty of potentially dropping one of the strikers, Jokanovic added: "It is good news because Troy and Vydra have been working well and have been performing at a good level. If you ask me how hard it is [to drop one of the three], I will do my job and will try to start and finish the game with players who provide the best chance of winning.

"It is my job [to make tough decisions] and I always try to do the right thing for my team."

Former head coach Gianfranco Zola was criticised for his excessive rotation. Most Golden Boys fans will recall the six changes made at strugglers Bristol City in early 2013 and the 2-0 defeat that followed.

Jokanovic arguably has a stronger squad now but has resisted the temptation to make wholesale changes - he argued only one of the five made at Birmingham City was voluntary.

But that does not mean the Serbian is not planning to utilise the Golden Boys' strength in depth. In recent weeks he has often stressed the importance of his squad when asked about individuals.

"Ighalo is part of my squad and he is more or less the same as everyone else in the squad," Jokanovic said of the striker, who has scored 17 goals this season.

"I have spoken many times about the need for my squad and my players understand. In this moment of the Championship we will depend on the squad, not one player or two players. We need 20 players ready for the next game and whoever is picked needs to respond on the field."

Fulham beat league-leaders Derby County 2-0 on Saturday but prior to that Kit Symons' men had not won in eight matches in all competitions and currently sit in 19th position. In the reverse fixture in December the Hertfordshire club won 5-0 against their London counterparts.

On Saturday the Hornets travel to fellow promotion contenders Wolverhampton Wanderers but Jokanovic dismissed any suggestion his selection tomorrow night could be influenced by the weekend fixture.

Jokanovic said: "I don't have a 100 per cent plan in place for Wolves because I want to pick my best team possible for Fulham.

"In terms of what is the best team, it depends on the squad, their preparation and their fitness. Like all of the coaches in the world, I will try to pick my best team."

"I have some plans for Saturday but in this moment all of my preparations are for tomorrow's game because the situations could change my mind," he added.
