Glory Hornets fans have urged Watford boss Aidy Boothroyd to head up his Christmas list with a new left back in a recent VitalWatford poll!
A whopping 38% of visitors reckon a swoop for a replacement for the lacklustre Jordan Stewart should be Boothroyd`s priority when the New Year sales kick in once the transfer window opens in January.
