TEAM NEWS: Watford v Blackburn Rovers

BLACKBURN Rovers have recalled Todd Kane and David Dunn for tonight’s Championship clash at Watford.

Dunn replaces Liam Feeney and he is expected to start at the tip of a midfield diamond.

Kane, meanwhile, is in for Adam Henley, who will not play again this season after injuring his ankle in Saturday’s 1-1 home draw with leaders Leicester City.

Watford, who have won their last six home games in all competitions and have not conceded a goal at Vicarage Road in 625 minutes, have made four changes to the team which started Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Wigan Athletic.

Joel Ekstrand, Sean Murray, Tommie Hoban and Alexander Merkel take the place of Essaid Belkalem, Cristian Battocchio, Davide Faraoni and Lewis McGugan while former Rovers defender Lucas Neill is named on the Hornets’ bench.

Rovers include fit-again captain Grant Hanley among their substitutes.

Watford: Almunia, Hoban, Angella, Ekstrand, Cassetti, Murray, Tozser, Merkel, Pudil, Deeney, Anya. Subs: Battocchio, McGugan, Doyley, Faraoni, Diakite, Neill.

Rovers: Robinson, Kane, Keane, Kilgallon, Spurr, Evans, Williamson, Conway, Dunn, Gestede, Rhodes. Subs: Eastwood, Hanley, Olsson, Varney, Taylor, Feeney, Dabo.
