Watford boss hot n' cross with Easter!

Watford boss hot n' cross with Easter!

The Easter bunny had better go into hiding for his own safety because Watford boss Malky Mackay is hopping mad with a hectic Easter schedule ... and it`s not an overindulgence on chocolate eggs that`s left him feeling rather sick.

In fact, 2 tough games in 48 hours and a 400 mile 7 hour road trip to Preston and back (amidst the Bank Holiday traffic and caravaning heaven on the M1) has put some serious pressure on Mackay`s young squad and has overworked the Watford medical staff.

With Helguson, Taylor and Demerit all on the treatment table, Cleverley out for the season and Buckley doubtful with a hamstring pull (just like Doyley) the Hornets gaffer has every right to have a pop with his Plymouth preparations in tatters.

The London Evening Standard reckon Malky 'is furious the congested Easter programme has decimated his squad` and quoted our fired up gaffer as blasting "One day between games is not enough in the modern age'.

Mackay continued "It should be a full programme on Good Friday and then maybe a Monday list."

Good Friday??? Sounds like Malky`s had a Bad Thursday by the sound of it!

When a club in the champ plays on a sunday they have their match moved to a wednesday in a mid-week because 1 day is not long enough to recover. So with WBA playing on fri why could our game with PNE not be played on good friday?
