Hornets Not Ready To Risk Striker

Watford striker Stefano Okaka is back in training but won’t be risked for Sunday’s meeting with Crystal Palace. The 29-year-old made just 15 Premier League appearances last term, scoring once, and was linked with a move away this summer.

However, he has remained on Watford’s books and wants to fight for a regular starting role at Vicarage Road.

Okaka is back in training after recovering from a leg injury but won’t be risked for the home game with Palace.

Javi Gracia has no new injury concerns, with Miguel Britos, Nathaniel Chalobah, Gerard Deulofeu and Tom Cleverley all still unavailable.
