Football - Abdi again doubtful for Hornets

Influential midfielder Almen Abdi is again struggling to be available for Watford's trip to Barnsley.

PA Sport Report

Abdi has missed the Hornets' last two matches with a foot injury and looks likely to sit out once more at Oakwell.

Iriney overcame a leg injury to make the bench for Tuesday's late 2-1 victory over Doncaster and will hope for a recall after boss Gianfranco Zola made a total of six changes for the clash.

Long-term absentees Nyron Nosworthy (Achilles) and Tommie Hoban (ankle) remain sidelined as Watford aim to build on their first win in five league matches.
