The former Granada man has recovered from a hamstring complaint which kept him on the sidelines and is in the frame to play his 28th game in all competitions, according to manager Javi Gracia.

”Roberto and Isaac are both ready to compete,” Gracia said at Thursday’s press conference.

”Isaac hasn’t played the same minutes as other players, but the time he played, he played with quality and is helping the team.

”He’s a good option for us in attack with his power and pace. He is something different for us to help us manage different games.”

Success last featured for Watford in a 2-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur on January 30 and missed three games against Brighton, Everton and Queens Park Rangers.

Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr is expected to name him in his squad for the international fixtures next month, provided he does not suffer any setbacks.
