Injury Update | Hornets Return To Training
The Hornets have welcomed a number of first-team players back into training after their respective injuries this week.
Christian Kabasele (hamstring) and Brice Dja Djédjé (fractured finger) rejoined the group during the middle of the week, while Mauro Zárate (knee) is also continuing to step-up his recovery on the Hornets' UCL training pitches.
Performance Director Gavin Benjafield said: "Christian has recovered well from his hamstring injury, and Brice is also putting in full sessions with the team, although he is still wearing a finger brace. It's been good to see them back on the pitch.
"Mauro is in full training with the team and his fitness is improving week-on-week. His availability for games is still under observation and it's up to the manager when he feels he's fit and ready to get some match minutes."
Craig Cathcart (muscle injury) continues to undergo an advanced rehabilitation programme, including team-based sessions outside, while Troy Deeney (groin) returned to full training at the end of last week and is recovering well.
"Troy has been putting in some big training sessions with the team as well as doing some individual work outside of team training sessions," said Benjafield.
Finally, Tommie Hoban (knee) has undergone successful anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction surgery and will initially continue his recovery at the Isokinetic clinic in London.
Benjafield said: "Tommie saw a specialist very well-known in the London area and will now be rehabilitating at Isokinetic for the initial phase before he comes back to UCL."
