Watford forward Cucho Hernandez has resumed individual training this week, as he continues to work on his recovery from a hamstring injury.

The Colombian had to be taken off during the 3-0 defeat to Leeds United just under a month ago and has been absent ever since.

He has now stepped up his rehabilitation this week, as he pushes to return before the end of the season.

Whether or not he will be able to play in any of Watford's four remaining matches is still not clear.

Prior to last weekend's home defeat to Burnley, assistant manager Ray Lewington said the club did not want to rush him back.

"It's a race against time to be honest, and no one really knows," he said. "I can't give you an honest answer. We're hopeful but it's not something you can push along. So we've really got to see how he reacts to the treatment he's getting and hopefully there'll be [a chance he can play] maybe in the last couple of games. But we don't know."
