Football - Zola ponders changes

Watford boss Gianfranco Zola is expected to rotate his side once more for the visit of Bolton.

The Italian manager made six changes in midweek as the Hornets failed to score for the first time in 14 games and were beaten 2-0 by Bristol City.

Zola is expected to recall 30-goal strike duo Matej Vydra and Troy Deeney, who were restricted to just half-an-hour at Ashton Gate.

Nat Chalobah, Marco Cassetti, Lloyd Doyley and Christian Battocchio are also pushing for returns to the line-up.

Midfielder Ikechi Anya (hamstring) and defender Neuton (back) will be assessed ahead of kick-off as they make their way back from injury.

Tommie Hoban is also closing in on a return from his Achilles injury, but Saturday is likely to come too soon for the defender.
