Troost-Ekong risks being dropped to the Watford bench

Published:

Watford’s Super Eagles defender, William Troost-Ekong is on the verge of losing his place in The Hornets’ starting eleven.

This is following his amateurish error that gifted Brentford a penalty which sealed Brentford’s comeback win on Friday at th Brentford Community Stadium.

Watford had led from the 24th-minute – when Emmanuel Dennis leapt well at a corner to power in a headed goal.

Brentford found an equalizer in the remaining six minutes left with Pontus Jansson nodded home Janelt’s from close range.

And deep into stoppage time Troost-Ekong brought down Saman Ghoddos who drove into the box, which saw the referee point to the penalty spot.

Bryan Mbeumo dispatched the resulting penalty giving his side a 95th-minute winner.

When Ranieri was asked if the Super Eagles assistant captain deserved to keep his place in the team – also taking into account the huge mistake he made in the recent 4-2 loss at Leicester, Ranieri said: “Now, we’ll see everything, and I can speak with him,”

“And also I have to see if there are some players ready to play. Because my defensive line is not ready to play, because (Christian) Kabasele wasn’t ready. (Francisco) Sierralta isn’t ready. I have to see.” The Italian was quoted by Hertfordshire Mercury.
