Former Watford head coach Nigel Pearson will be a guest for BT Sport's coverage of the Hornets' FA Cup third round tie with Manchester United this Saturday evening.

Pearson was sacked back in July following a 3-1 defeat at West Ham United with only two games of that season remaining.

The currently out of work coach announced the news via his personal Twitter account earlier today.

He tweeted: "I'm pleased to confirm that I will be a guest on @btsportfootball on Saturday evening for the @EmiratesFACup tie between @ManUtd and my former club @WatfordFC, alongside @rioferdy5 and host @mrjakehumphrey. Looking forward to seeing live football in person again. Cheers, Nige."
