Burnley V Watford Match Preview.

15/12/2012 11:29

Watford travel to Turf Moor today to play Burnley and ex manager Sean Dyche. Dyche is now the manager at Turf Moor after being sacked by the Pozzos in the summer after stearing the hornets to 11th Place last season. Watford will be hoping to forget about their 2-1 defeat at home to Hull last week and get back to winning ways. The two matches last season ended in a 2-2 draw at Turf Moor on the opening day of the season and a 3-2 victory for Watford at Vicarage Road in March. If Mark Yeates plays today, he will make his 300th Career appearence.

Team News.

For Burnley, Sean Dyche is without Chris McCann and Micahel Duff through suspension. Apart from these two players, Dyche has a fully fit sqaud to choose from.

For Watford, Gianfranco Zola could again be without Fernando Forestieri so Matej Vydra looks set to retain his place in the side. Forestieri has not recovered from the hamstring injury that kept him out of last weeks defeat against Hull. Marco Cassetti is also a doubt for the game today. Almen Abdi is back fit and could start after coming off the bench against Hull. John Eustace is back in training but the game comes too soon for him. Prince Buaben is also back in training but the game also comes too soon for him. Nyron Nosworthy is deffinetly out. Lloyd Doyley could feature.
