Watford v Huddersfield preview

Watford will be without Albert Riera in Saturday's Sky Bet Championship clash with Huddersfield at Vicarage Road.

The former Manchester City and Liverpool winger was sent off in the midweek defeat at Charlton and serves a one-match ban, joining a host of team-mates on the sidelines.

Almen Abdi, Lewis McGugan (both knee), Manuel Alumina (Achilles), Davide Faraoni (hip), Fernando Forestieri and Chu-Young Park (both toe) have all been ruled out of the season finale.

Joel Ekstrand and Marco Cassetti are, however, available to Beppe Sannino, who has suggested he will play some younger players in the dead rubber.

Huddersfield manager Mark Robins is expected to select from an unchanged squad.

Robins has no new selection issues, but striker James Vaughan (knee) and midfielder Keith Southern (groin) both remain sidelined.

Danish teenager Philip Billing is hoping to feature again after making his first senior appearance off the bench in last week's home defeat to Leicester, while forward Joe Lolley is also in contention again after he too appeared as a second-half substitute.

Winger Danny Ward, midfielder Oliver Norwood and defender Tommy Smith are all pushing for recalls as Town bid for only their second win in 13 matches.
