Burnley Team News:
Owen Coyle’s only problems come in his choice for selection after the 3-1 victory over rivals Preston. Chris Eagles started on the bench but might be given a start after his 90th minute goal.
Player to watch: Graham Alexander
Ex-Scummer has been on a scoring run of late and the former Preston skipper is rock-solid at right back.
A set peice specialist, Alexander notched two at Forest a few weeks back.
Watford Team News:
Watford’s injury worries grow by the game. Saturday saw Scott Loach [Torn Abdominal Muscles] join fellow stopper Mart Poom on the sidelines.
Mat Sadler and Liam Henderson were back on the bench, as was Jobi McAnuff, so some relief for Aidy Boothoryd.
Player to watch: John-Joe O’Toole
Seems to be the only player capable of netting for Watford with five in his last six.
The Eire U21 cap broke onto the scene last season and since then his exuberrance and energy have seen him threaten established pro’s at the ‘Vic.
