Watford - Brighton & H.A: Team News

Gianfranco Zola will be without up to five players for tonight's clash with Brighton & Hove Albion, though Stephen McGinn is fit enough for selection.

Fitz Hall is still sidelined with a thigh problem picked up during the international break, whilst Alex Geijo and Geoffrey Mujangi Bia are both suffering from muscle tightness.

There's bad news for former Dundee United midfielder Prince Buaben too, who is to undergo a scan to determine the extent of a hamstring injury which is expected to keep him out for a matter of weeks.

Speaking to The Watford Observer, Zola confirmed the news:

'Prince is having a scan today and we don't know the extent of his injury yet,' said Zola.

'His injury is near his hamstring but it is towards the end of the muscle, near his tendon.'

Skipper John Eustace is still out following his back operation, but could be back in training in the near future, says Zola:

'John should be back in a few days and beginning his rehabilitation work, so he shouldn't be out too long.'

One man who is available for selection is Scottish midfield McGinn. THe former St Mirren man has been out for 19 months following injury but Zola has confirmed that he is available for selection for the first time.
