Watford set for BIG Sheffield Wednesday boost but no Dele-Bashiru Derby – Tom Cleverley? Ismaila Sarr? Christian Kabasele?
Watford could be set for a big player boost ahead of Sheffield Wednesday’s visit to Vicarage Road.
The Hornets are in a rich vein of form at present having won all five of their games since the start of March, a run that has seen them climb up into the automatic promotion places.
Xisco Munoz and his side are now in second place behind Norwich City, and will pose a big threat to Darren Moore’s relegation-threatened Owls.
And if the prospect of beating Watford wasn’t daunting enough, it’s looking likely that they could potentially welcome back both Tom Cleverley and Christian Kabasele after it was confirmed that they were now back in training, while the talented Ismaila Sarr could also be back in contention.
Cleverley hasn’t played since the start of March due to some ligament damage, Kabasele has had a bruised knee and Sarr missed the win over Birmingham City – the trio have scored 14 of Watford’s goals this season and would definitely give Munoz a welcome boost if available.
Sadly, though, there will be no Dele-Bashiru Derby for Tom and Fisayo, because while SWFC’s Dele-Bashiru could well be back in contention following his ankle injury, his brother is still on the road to recovery following his ACL injury back in October.
Meanwhile, the club’s captain, Troy Deeney, is recovering from an Achilles tendon injury and is set to remained sidelined for some time as he recovers.
Wednesday are set to take on Watford at 3pm on Friday afternoon.
