Watford have confirmed that three of their first team players are isolating following positive for Covid-19 tests ahead of their match at Bristol City this evening.

The Hornets kick off against the Robins in less than an hour's time at Ashton Gate and after announcing their team for the match confirmed that three of their players were absent due to the virus.

Six members of staff from the club tested positive earlier in the year, including defender Adrian Mariappa, who is on the bench for their opponents tonight.
