Bennett remains in hospital

Bennett remains in hospital

A point at West Ham came at a price for Dale Bennett who left the game after 58 minutes thanks to a clash of heads with John Eustace.

The centre-back, making his first league start of the season had been imperious until his withdrawal following a serious collision with the skipper.

Whilst Eustace only needed stitches to a head wound, Bennett left the field on a stretcher, complete with neck brace and oxygen mask.

Speaking afterwords, Sean Dyche revealed the latest news on the defender's condition.

"I have just spoke to the doctors and we are waiting on feedback from the hospital.' Dyche told the Watford Observer

"They suspect it is not as serious as it looked but we can`t guarantee that until the x-rays etcetera are done.

"They are deciphering whether it was a knock to the head or his neck so that is why the precautions were taken."

There was better news for the Hornets on the injury front with the surprise return of Martin Taylor.

The big centre-back made his first-team return after breaking his collarbone against Crystal Palace last October, coming on as a substitute for the stricken Bennett.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery from VitalWatford, Dale.
