Roberto Martinez has given us good news ahead of tonight’s game by declaring that top scorer Jason Scotland is fit to face Watford at Vicarage Road.
There were slight doubts regarding the striker after picking up a knock to his hip following Saturday’s FA Cup game at home to Fulham.
Thankfully he has fully recovered, and Martinez said:
|‘He has recovered really well,’ |
‘We are delighted with him. Some players can be distracted when they get a lot of attention, but Jason is the opposite.
‘He loves the spotlight and his goal against Fulham just shows you what a fantastic finisher he is.’
With Scotland fit to play, Martinez is likely to name the same side that drew 1-1 with Fulham on Saturday.
