Attacking pair pushing for Watford chance

23rd April 2019, 17:49 by James Mason

Roberto Pereyra and Adalberto Penaranda are both back in contention for Watford's home clash with Southampton on Tuesday night.

Argentina international Pereyra has been missing for the last two matches while Penaranda, who has yet to make his Premier League debut, has not featured in a match-day squad since February 9.

Javi Gracia has confirmed both players are back in contention although he is unsure if the pair will be named in his squad for the clash against Southampton at Vicarage Road.

"Both are training, both are available," he told the club's website. "One has made many more minutes than the other and he maybe needs more time to be in the best condition.

"Penaranda has been out of the time for a long time, but the best news is that they are available."

Gracia also confirmed he will be without four injured players while Troy Deeney is suspended for the red card he received in the 1-0 defeat to Arsenal.

"We have out of the team Jose Holebas, Tom Cleverley, Domingos Quina and Sebastian Prodl," he added. "Prodl has a little problem in his knee. He trained yesterday but he didn't today and we'll see. It is nothing serious, but in this moment he is not available.

"Tom will be ready to train with the team in three or four days. I'm optimistic Jose will be ready to train with the team in one or two days. We'll see."
