Watford Boss Explains Why Isaac Success Will Not Play Against QPRPublished: February 14, 2019
Watford manager Javi Gracia has decided to leave out his top scorer in Cup competitions this season, Isaac Success from the squad that will tackle Queens Park Rangers in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Friday evening.
The Nigeria national-teamer did not feature for the Hornets in their last two games in the Premier League because of a hamstring complaint.
Gracia did not bring good news on the fitness of Success when he addressed reporters at Thursday's pre-match press conference.
''At this moment we only have Isaac Success and Kiko Femenía injured,'' Gracia was quoted as saying by the official webpage of Watford.
''Sebastian Prödl and Roberto Pereyra are training with the team, but we'll decide tomorrow if they are options to play or not.''
Success has been a regular for Watford in Cup competitions this term, scoring three goals in four appearances combined in the League and FA Cups.
