Championship - Diakite banned for Watford

Samba Diakite starts a three-match suspension as Watford make the trip to Yeovil.

PA Sport Report

The on-loan midfielder saw red in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Middlesbrough - a third win in four unbeaten matches - and now starts a three-match suspension at Huish Park.

Defender Lloyd Doyley was forced off at half-time against Boro nursing a calf injury and is a doubt, while Lewis McGugan (thigh), Almen Abdi (foot) and Fitz Hall (Achilles) remain sidelined.

However, goalkeeper Manuel Almunia (calf) and defender Joel Ekstrand (knee) return to contention to boost the Hornets.
