Watford boss Javi Gracia has admitted that the club is missing the services of striker Isaac Success.
Success made 30 English Premier League appearances for Watford last season, scoring one goal.
The Nigerian striker picked an hamstring injury in pre season while playing for the Hornets.
Gracia confirmed to the Hornets’ official website that the former Golden Eaglets hit man will be rested for two to three days.
“[Success] has a little problem with his hamstring, but it is better to stop one day than to regret a worse injury,” said.
“I prefer to stop. I am sure in two or three days he will be ready.”
Watford will play a pre season friendly away at Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.
