Team News: Almunia fit, Forestieri out?

Captain Manuel Almunia is expected to return to Watford's starting XI for Tuesday's trip to Yeovil after being passed fit.

Almunia, 36, missed the 1-0 victory over Birmingham City on Saturday with a calf problem, but is fit again and expected to replace Jonathan Bond between the sticks.

Beppe Sannino could be without the in-form forward Fernando Forestieri however, after the Argentine sent out a cryptic tweet suggesting he would not be involved.




Essaid Belkalem and Mathias Ranegie are both fit and available for selection after recovering from long-term injuries, whilst Joel Ekstrand is available once more following a knee problem.

Almen Abdi (foot), Lewis McGugan (thigh), Fitz Hall (Achilles) and Samba Diakite (suspension) are all out.

Yeovil boss Gary Johnson is without wide-man Liam Davis and forward Sam Hoskins, but both are nearing full fitness once more.
