Watford leading goalscorer Troy Deeney starts for the Hornets against Sheffield Wednesday at Vicarage Road today.

Watford boss Gianfranco Zola has named striker Troy Deeney in his starting lineup for the visit of Sheffield Wednesday to Vicarage Road in the Championship today.

Deeney, who has hit nine goals for the Londoners this season, is poised to lead the line as the spearhead in Zola's 4-5-1 system as the Hornets chase their first victory in eight attempts.

Elsewhere, defender Hector Bellerin is poised to start his fourth successive fixture for the club since joining on loan last month.

Meanwhile, Wednesday interim coach Stuart Gray has named three changes to his starting lineup from the 0-1 defeat to Nottingham Forest last weekend.

Gray, who takes the reins for a third time following the dismissal of Dave Jones a fortnight ago, brings Reda Johnson, Stephen McPhail and Jeremy Helan into the fold.

Watford: Bond; Faraoni, Hall, Nosworthy, Cassetti; Bellerin, Battocchio, Thorne, Murray, Anya; Deeney

Sheffield Wednesday: Martinez; Palmer, Reda Johnson, Roger Johnson, Loovens; Lee, McPhail, Semedo, Maghoma, Helan; Wickham
