Neuton fit and available for selection

Neuton fit and available for selection

Watford Head of Medical Marco Cesarini has provided an update on Watford's numerous injured players with Neuton now fit to return.

The Brazilian defender has been out for several weeks after sustaining an ankle injury in training, but Cesarini has confirmed that the defender is now ready to return to first-team action.

Midfielder Almen Abdi could also be in contention this weekend after recovering from a dislocated shoulder suffered at Leeds United.

Skipper John Eustace is still sidelined after recovering from back surgery.

It is now a case of the midfielder working his way back to fitness, a process which will include ball work later this week.

Defenders Lloyd Doyley and Nyron Nosworthy as well as Ikechi Anya are all back jogging now and should be available for selection within two and four weeks.

'In Lloyd's case it was not a calf muscle tear but more the inflammation of old scar tissue,' Cesarini told watfordfc.com

'Ikechi and Nyron were both hamstring problems but things are moving forward there.'

Cesarini went on to explain the situation regarding Prince Buaben:

'In the case of Prince Buaben, we decided against an operation after consultation with a specialist. It was the tendon of his quadracep, and we decided on more conservative treatment.

'Even that had its risks, because the injury was unusual. It was quite an extreme movement to cause the injury first of all, so very unlucky in this respect.'

Finally, goalkeeper Jonathan Bond is expected to be back in training later this week after straining his groin tendon.

Yeah I've wondered that too, 1881. He is lovely on the ball but you really do worry about him at the back. I think a stint in DM/CM might do him good/be less terrifying!
