Watford winger Gerard Deulofeu made his first appearance since picking up an injury against Liverpool in February when he came off the bench in Udinese's 3-2 win over Parma.

The Spanish attacker joined the Serie A club on loan earlier this month and came off the bench to play for the first time since he damaged his knee during the Hornets' 3-0 win over the eventual Champions last season.

Deulofeu replaced former Watford winger Roberto Pereyra with 12 minutes of yesterday's match remaining as he starts to build his fitness following a lengthy spell of rehabilitation.

It was however another out-on-loan Hornet who stole the headlines in the match, with Ignacio Pussetto also coming off the bench before scoring the winning goal.

The Argentine joined the game for the final 23 minutes and was set up by yet another player to have worn the Watford shirt, Stefano Okaka.

Udinese conceded first, but pulled the game back and then went ahead through an own goal, following Pereyra's deflected shot.

Parma drew the sides level again, but Pussetto's strike with just two minutes remaining sealed the win.
