After confirming that skipper John Eustace will be out for 'a few weeks' Malky Mackay had to contend with three further injury setbacks today at Scunthorpe.
Victory came at the cost of injuries to Don Cowie and Danny Graham as well as loanee Andrew Taylor who heads back to Middlesbrough having turned his ankle.
Scottish cap Cowie was the first to be withdrawn having felt the back of his achilles after 40 minutes.
Speaking of his fellow countryman's injury Mackay told the The Watford Observer that the extent of Cowie's injury was as yet unknown:
...'With Don we will just have to wait and see in the next day and two to see the extent of the injury."
Danny Graham grabbed the Hornet's leveller after the Iron took the lead and the Hornet's leading scorer felt a problem in his hamstring:
"Danny's hamstring got really tight towards the end but he is an experienced lad and he knew to get himself off before the end."
Finally, skipper John Eustace, who missed the clash will be unable to return for a few weeks as it was confirmed the 31 year-old midfielder has a calf problem:
"John has a calf problem. We will have him scanned early this week but he is definitely going to be a few weeks."
The only silver lining is that we are of course now into the January transfer window, so replacements can be found. However with as good as no money to work with it's going to be loans, kids or foreign gems once more for Malky.
