Gracia happy with fit Watford
Javi Gracia has lavished praise on Watford's medical team for providing him with a full squad for Saturday's trip to Manchester City.
The Hornets clinched a last-gasp 2-1 victory at home to Leicester City last time out and Gracia's men will be aiming to continue their charge for a seventh-place finish when they travel to the Etihad Stadium.
However, Watford have lost the last nine meetings with City in all competitions, conceding 29 goals, whilst their last victory over the Citizens came back in April 1987.
Gracia does have every first-team player to choose from for the trip to Manchester and he has praised the club's medical department.
"Today is a good day for me as I can tell you all my players are available for the next game," he said at a press conference. "It is good news for us because it speaks well about all the people working around the team: the medical staff, all the workers in different departments are helping us to stay in the best condition for the competitions."
James Mason grew up in Northumberland so is entrenched in both the football and golf scenes. A low handicap golfer, he also follows Newcastle United and predicts big things under Rafa Benitez.
