Odion Ighalo ready to face Leicester despite injury

Watford's top scorer Odion Ighalo will be available for his side's Barclays Premier League trip to Leicester on Saturday.

Ighalo limped off with a dead leg in Watford's win at West Ham after a heavy challenge from James Collins, but the Nigerian striker will be fit to face the high-flying Foxes.

Jose Manuel Jurado, who has not featured since September with a hamstring injury sustained in training, remains sidelined. Tommie Hoban (groin) and Joel Ekstrand (knee) are long-term absentees.

Provisional squad: Gomes, Arlauskis, Gilmartin, Nyom, Cathcart, Prodl, Ake, Paredes, Britos, Holebas, Belkalem, Capoue, Behrami, Dyer, Watson, Guedioura, Anya, Jurado, Layun, Berghuis, Pudil, Behrami, Abdi, Oulare, Diamanti, Ighalo, Deeney.
