Watford boss Gracia confident Pereyra fit for Wolves FA Cup clash

Watford boss Javi Gracia is confident Roberto Pereyra will be fit for their FA Cup semi with Wolves.

Pereyra is carrying a hip injury this week.

The skilful Argentina international has played a key role in Watford's successful season and boss Gracia is confident he will be given the green light to play.

"Pereyra felt some pain but I think he can be ready for the next game," said Gracia, who withdrew the 28-year-old at half-time against Fulham as a precaution.

"Roberto is an important player for us but if he is not available I have other players ready and waiting for the chance to play."
