Watford welcome 20-y/o back to action for Derby County clash
As reported by the Watford Observer, young defender Jeremy Ngakia will be available for Watford’s Friday night clash with Derby County.
Xisco Munoz’ Hornets will be looking to continue in their winning ways on Friday night.
Next up for the club is Derby County, who are enjoying an impressive run of late. Under the management of Wayne Rooney, the Rams have won five of their last six, helping them to 17th place after a poor first half of the campaign.
Now, ahead of Friday’s tie with Derby, a positive injury update has emerged from Vicarage Road. Young full-back Jeremy Ngakia, who has been absent from the last two games, is ready to make his return against the Rams.
The Watford Observer reports that the former West Ham United youngster is available after picking up a knock.
While Ngakia has returned to fitness, Troy Deeney (achilles) and Marc Navarra (hamstring) are both set for stints on the sidelines. They join Ben Foster (finger) and Christian Kabasele (knee) in the treatment room.
Since joining from West Ham last summer, 20-year-old defender Ngakia has played in 23 games for the Hornets.
The prodigy has featured mainly at right-back but has also appeared further forward on the right-hand side of midfield and over on the left side at times.
