are also unbeaten in their opening three games and thus far are proving to be the league’s great entertainers.

An opening day win away to Birmingham was followed up by a 6-1 demolition of newly promoted Bournemouth before a late fight-back from 3-1 down saw the Hornets salvage a point away to Reading.

Deeney is proving to the divisions stand out player so far this season with his 76th minute penalty at the Madejeski his fifth league goal of the season.

The former Walsall man will no doubt be tasked with being the first player to breach the Forest back-line and he is well aware of the tough task ahead telling the club’s official website “A lot’s been made of them not conceding any goals so you know that they’re going to be very organised and it’s going to be a tough test.

“We’re only two weeks into the season and I think Forest will know that one day it will end, but they’ve had two 1-0 victories and they had a big victory last weekend so they need to be respected because they’re a top team.”

Watford boss Gianfranco Zola will be hoping that his side avoid the defensive lapses that cost them three goals last weekend and is able to call on the services of defenders Marco Cassetti and Joel Ekstrand after both overcame injuries.

Zola has no other fresh injury worries ahead of the game with the table toppers with long-term absentee Nyron Nosworthy and Tommy Hoban still out.

Forest meanwhile will recall striker Simon Cox and Darius Henderson with the pair vying for a starting place alongside Mackie.

Greg Halford should return to defensive duties after been forced to play upfront last weekend while Djamel Abdoun will hope to keep his place after impressing on the wing last weekend.

This one kicks off at Vicarage Road, Watford at 13:15 GMT
