Hoskins earnt his chance - Watford

Hoskins earnt his chance - Watford

Watford boss Malky Mackay has insisted that forgotten man Will Hoskins deserved his cameo appearance at the Keepmoat Stadium on Saturday after impressing on the training field.

The Hornets striker has barely had a kick this season and has had more 'clean slates` than an roofer with OCD but a 30 minute run out in the 2-1 defeat to Donny - his first significant taste of action since early October - was reward for effort at London Colney, according to the gaffer.

Malky told the 'fficial site "This week in training Will has been very good so I thought it was time to get him on the pitch". He added via the W`Observer "…Will has been doing well in the last couple of weeks…at the moment he is certainly going to be involved".

The inclusion of Will er, will be music to the ears of those that think Hoskins has the guile, movement, skill and pace to add something just that little bit different to the waifer thin Hornets frontline.

But, the future of the former Rotherham (and England Youth) striker still looks pretty precarious after loan spells at Millwall and Nottingham Forest in recent seasons have been anything but spectacular.

Even Malky did little to offer that extra reassurance, stating "at the moment I see him being with us - I don`t have enough forwards to allow him to go out on loan…but who knows what is going to happen in the next couple of weeks".

Hmmm, here at VitalWatford we don`t even need to read between the lines to know that doesn`t suggest Hoskins has a big part to play over the coming weeks.
