Watford owner Laurence Bassini has pulled out of tonight's question-and-answer session with supporters and does not plan to reschedule until the New Year.

Bassini was due to hold a Q&A with supporters on BBC Three Counties Radio after failing to attend a fans' forum two weeks ago.

But Watford have this afternoon released a statement which read: "I'd like to sincerely apologise to all Watford fans for this evening having to be postponed.

"I have had all the best intentions when it comes to both this and the fans' forum before it.

"I want to do the right thing and talk directly to supporters but I don't feel well enough to do that," he added.

"I really wanted to do this as soon after the fans forum as possible - and I thought that a week or so would be long enough for me to fully recover.

"So now, to make sure that I've had a chance to get properly back on an even keel, I'm going to ask BBC Three Counties to re-arrange the phone-in for some time early in the New Year."
