Team News: Watford v Newcastle United

By: Watford FC Staff

Daniel Bachmann is a fitness doubt for this weekend’s Premier League match with Newcastle United due to a minor knee problem.

The goalkeeper, who played no part in the midweek Carabao Cup game against Stoke City and was on the bench at Norwich City on Saturday, will be assessed in training over the next two days.

Kiko Femenía has returned to full training after his withdrawal at Carrow Road and is in contention for the Magpies’ visit on Saturday.

Brazilian forward João Pedro, who hasn’t featured since May, is also training with the squad and may be considered for the weekend.

Peter Etebo is certainly available for a return to action, having missed the Stoke City cup tie under the terms of his loan agreement with the Potters.
