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!
