Watford Sweat Over Ighalo’s Fitness; Final Test On Friday Ahead Match Vs Stoke City


Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores has said that they will assess the fitness of Odion Ighalo ahead of this weekend's Premier League clash against Stoke City at Vicarage Road.

Ighalo ended his goal drought in Watford's 2-1 win against Arsenal in an FA Cup quarter-final match, but went off with a knock.

According to dailystar.co.uk, Flores stated that aside Ighalo, Watford will also check on other players who are also struggling with injuries and they will get a clearer picture on Friday.

"We have to check on the latest about Odion tomorrow (Friday), we have three or four players recovering.

"My feeling is some of them will be OK but not all the players will be ready. But we will know for sure tomorrow," Flores said.

A win for Watford against Stoke City will see them attain the required 40 points which will guarantee their stay in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, the Hornets will take on Crystal Palace in the semi-final of the FA Cup in Wembley next month.
