Dyche looking to strengthen out wide

Dyche looking to strengthen out wide

Hornet's supremo Sean Dyche has admitted he is looking to add a wide player during the January Transfer Window.

Since Michael Kightly's return to Wolves at the beginning of January, Watford have looked less potent going forward.

Craig Forsyth has returned to first-team action but the young Scot has been short of form and is still settling into English football.

Aside from Forsyth and Mark Yeates, the only wide player at the club is Michael Bryan - currently on trial at Bournemouth. Matty Whichelow has impressed more when playing in the middle of the park and Piero Mingoia is currently on-loan at Brentford.

Speaking to The Watford Observer, Dyche said:

"It is not a number one priority like we are rushing out to do it. But it stands to reason as we only really have big Craig [Forsyth], who is a development player and is still learning about the Championship, and [Mark] Yeatesy.'

Dyche denied the observation of many fans that his side had lacked flair in defeat to Reading:

"It`s not something that stuck out to anyone before we had two awkward results. I never heard it mentioned when we had lost one game in 11."

Not that I'm telling Sean how to do his job, but I really would be making a winger my 'No.1 priority' because the Kightly-shaped hole in our midfield has been extremely noticeable.
