Watford will have a strong squad to take to Woking on Sunday, with just three players missing through injury.

Andre Gray, Christian Kabasele and Sebastian Prodl are the only players sidelined for the FA Cup third round match, with head coach Javi Gracia expected to make a host changes. 

Among those available for selection now are Adalberto Penaranda and Nathaniel Chalobah, both of whom Gracia claimed were ready to be called upon.

Speaking ahead of the fixture, the head coach said: "We have the same players out of the team at this moment. Prodl, Kabasele and Andre Gray. The rest of the team are available.

"Penaranda is available and he's improving. He's in a fit physical condition and I think he will be available for the next game.

"Chalobah is ready too. In that position we have different players like Tom Cleverely and Domingos Quina and you have to choose, but Chalobah is ready and training very well and will be ready for the next game."

Gracia understands that Chalobah may currently be feeling frustrated by a lack of game time, but that such disappointment was not necessarily a bad thing.

He also stated that he would still be preparing for the match as he would any other, despite there being an opportunity for him to try something different with his squad.

He added: "I'm sure all the players who didn’t play in these games can be a little bit disappointed but it’s normal. It’s a good feeling for him and for me as well because they want to play.

"All the players need more games and all the players need more minutes. I think it’s a good chance to respect the competition, it’s an important game, maybe it will be a good option for players who played in the last four games in a short period of time, that they don’t play this game.

"I don’t want to see the next game as a having a different importance, it’s very important. 

"I don’t know any game our supporters don't want to win. The next game is the most important and that’s always the mentality we have. The next game we need to win, in any competition."
