Doncaster v Watford Preview

by newyankee

Rovers take on Watford tonight in the hope of keeping up the good home record which shows them being unbeaten at home in 2014. Dickov knows that another performance like the one on Saturday will be required to beat a strong Watford side now coached by Italian Beppe Sannino.

Dickov had a lot to say about the South Africa v Brazil game at last week. He has sent a get well soon message to Bonghani Khumalo, following his terrible first half injury which will sideline him for 18 months. " Apart from being a top professional, Bongs is a great lad as well." " The lads all want to keep in touch with him."

Dickov is looking to bring in a loan replacement, either a centre half who can play right back or vice versa, but it may not be in time for tonight.

Dickov is looking to build on the good performance at the weekend, the 2-0 win over Huddersfield, he wants more of the same. " We know our home form is good, we've beaten a lot of good teams and Watford are no exception." " We seem to keep our best performances for the top sides." " We have to address our away form, but if we can build on Saturday's result, it will give us a good chance of pulling away."

"We need to do the same again without the ball, and I feel if we can keep our discipline without it we can beat anyone." In the reverse fixture Watford won 2-1 with both goals coming from Lewis McGugan, who, along with Fer5nando Forrestieri is looking to return after injury.

Watford will be without Fitz Hall (nickname "One size"), Almen Abdi and Chu-Young Park who are all ruled out due to injury. Joel Eckstrand will be serving his second game of a suspension and Samba Diakite will miss the game as he is not match fit, although much better. Recent short term singing, Austarlian defender Lucas Neill could make his debut.
