Lloyd Doyley and Will Buckley are out of tomorrow night's match with Bristol City but Watford do not have any fresh injuries to worry about.

Doyley is out with a hamstring problem and Buckley is still suffering with the ankle injury he suffered nine days ago.

“Lloyd is not going to make tomorrow night,” Watford manager Malky Mackay confirmed this afternoon.

“I wouldn't rule him out of Saturday just yet but we will see how the rest of the week goes.

“He is with the physios at the moment and not outside running, so he certainly won't play tomorrow night.

“Will Buckley is another one who probably won't make tomorrow night.

“Both Michael Bryan and Rob Kiernan are nearing full fitness. Michael and Rob were outside today so they are nearly ready to be back involved.

“That is it, the rest of the boys are fit and available.”

Bristol City, who are managed by former Hornet Keith Millen, are in 20th place and six points outside the relegation zone.

City have only won once in their last nine but that victory was a 4-0 thrashing of Preston North End and they showed they can beat anyone on their day with a 3-0 win against Cardiff City on January 1.

Mackay said: “They have some experienced players and they have spent a bit of money on certain players.

“They have people who can score goals down there and they have experience.

“We watched them against Leicester City on Friday night and it is going to be a tough game for us.”

Watford have won the last two games between these sides 2-0 but Mackay claims that is irrelevant.

He said: “Our last two wins do not mean anything. Unless the games are two weeks apart, you take every game on its individual merits due to the number of changes made, with injuries, suspensions and runs of form.”
