Injury Update: Ryan Andrews & Jamal Lewis

By: Watford FC Staff

Tom Cleverley has provided an update on the fitness of both Jamal Lewis and Ryan Andrews after the two players were forced into an early return from international duty through injury.

It has been confirmed that Andrews, who earned his fourth consecutive call-up to the England Men's Elite League Squad, will play no part in the side's two away fixtures against Poland and the Czech Republic.

On the right-back, Cleverley said: “Ryan got a dead leg in training and was going to be doubtful for both England games so everyone thought it best for him to return to us for treatment.”

The Interim Head Coach also gave an update on the foot injury that ruled Lewis out of the victory away at Birmingham City, stating that there is a chance he will return to the Northern Ireland squad for their second match away to Scotland despite him currently being back with the Hornets.

Lewis will miss the game with Romania tomorrow.

“Jamal's foot injury is keeping him out of the first of Northern Ireland's two games, but he's optimistic he may be okay for the second game early next week,” Cleverley said.

Fortunately, neither injury is believed to have caused any long-term absence.

“From our point of view, we're hopeful they'll both be able to play a part against Leeds, so let's see how they come through next week,” Cleverley concluded.
