Watford will be able to call upon both Andre Gray and Will Hughers when they travel to Adams Park to face Wycombe Wanderers this evening, but Troy Deeney and Stipe Perica will both miss out, manager Vladimir Ivic has confirmed.
The attack-minded duo have both yet to feature for the Hornets this season due to injury, but could now be set to make their return to the side this evening, although manager Vladimir Ivic is seemingly cautious about rushing the pair back too quickly.
Speaking about the duo ahead of the game, Ivic told The Watford Observer: “Andre Gray and Will Hughes are ready to be with the squad. Now it’s a question of if we will use them in the game tomorrow, or for the next one.
“Both of them are important players for us and both of them are quality, experienced players who can give us an extra level in our game, in both ways, in attack and defence.
“It’s just a question now that we need to be smart to use them in the correct way, to not take some kind of risk because we know that both of them have stayed out for a long period. I expect them to be ready 100 per cent after the international break.”
One player who will still be absent for the Hornets on Tuesday night is Troy Deeney, with the striker still not ready to feature, having made just one brief substitute appearance so far this season.
Providing an update on the 32-year-old, Ivic went on to add: “Troy Deeney needs more time to prepare himself to be ready for the game but the good thing is that Andre and Will, they’re close to coming back to help us in our next games.”
