Football - Hornets pair ready for Boro

Ikechi Anya and Samba Diakite are poised to return to contention for Watford's home clash against Middlesbrough.

PA Sport Report

Wing-back Anya (calf) missed Tuesday's 1-0 victory over Birmingham while on-loan midfielder Diakite has sat out of the club's last two matches due to a similar injury.

Essaid Belkalem (ankle) and Mathias Ranegie (illness) have both returned to light training but the encounter against Boro could come too soon.

Defender Joel Ekstrand (knee) is a doubt having been forced off against Blues while Lewis McGugan (thigh), Almen Abdi (foot) and Fitz Hall (Achilles) continue to miss out.
