Sean Dyche has revealed that Ben Mee faces a couple of weeks on the sidelines due to a shin injury, but Johann Berg Gudmundsson (calf) could come back into contention for the home clash against Leicester City. Kevin Long will continue in central defence, then, but if Gudmundsson isn’t risked, and with Georges-Kevin Nkoudou facing a late fitness check due to a tight hamstring, Jeff Hendrick may be forced to fill in on the left side of midfield. Ashley Barnes and Charlie Taylor could perhaps be other options down the left flank. Hendrick is also an option either in central midfield in place of Ashley Westwood, or in a central support role, putting the starts of either Barnes or Chris Wood at risk. Tom Heaton was back on the bench at Vicarage Road and continues to threaten to replace Nick Pope in goal. Steven Defour, Robbie Brady, Scott Arfield and Jon Walters all remain sidelined.
Lowton – Tarkowski – Long – Ward
Lennon – Westwood – Cork – Gudmundsson
Wood – Barnes
