“It's a wonderful achievement for the club and for those two players,” the gaffer told the official site. “It's particularly great for Marlon, considering the dip in career that he's come back from. To be voted as the best player in that position by his peers is a massive plus for the club, the whole team and the two individuals concerned.”
“Marlon is the leading scorer in the league and has proved that he can kick on again. He has obviously caused that many problems for the opposition defences that they have felt he was the biggest threat so they've put him in the team. Considering the competition for places, I think that's fantastic.”
King, who celebrated his twenty-sixth birthday this week, has been suspended for Watford’s last two games after being sent off at Wolves but the gaffer indicated that the former Forest forward may be selected for the for Sunday’s game with Hull City.
“I don't think I'll be able to keep him in cotton wool for the play-offs. He's that keen to play, he's raring to go. He's been fantastic in training and I'm hoping that his recent rest will have done him good because he's firing at the moment,” said Boothroyd.
Watford duo King and Young were voted into the select X1 by their fellow Championship professionals and picked up their awards in person at the prestigious ceremony in London on Sunday.
