Player to Watch

Lionel Ainsworth. Played under Turner at Hereford before catching the attention of Watford, who he joined for an undisclosed fee in January 2008. Ainsworth then moved to Huddersfield Town in January 2009, but after falling out of favour with manager Lee Clark, spent time on loan with Brentford before teaming up with Turner once again in the close season.



Chances

Town have made a promising start to the campaign and will have expectations of a least a top 7 finish.
