Pulis pre Watford

ALBION Head Coach Tony Pulis is preparing his side for a 'tough game' as the Baggies host high-flying Watford on Saturday (ko 3pm).

The Hornets have won all three of their Premier League away games this season. And Tony admits his opposite number Marco Silva has done a good job so far.

"He has a better horse to ride this year than last year," admits Pulis.

"He's been backed - they've spent quite a bit of money.

"They look a very capable team and it'll be a tough game."

The Baggies Head Coach reserved comment for Jake Livermore who, before the clash at the Emirates, had been given a period of rest by the club.

"The most important thing with Jake is to get his form back and to work as hard as what he has done.

"We wouldn't have given him the rest if we thought he was right bang on."

With Jake's return, Pulis says his entire squad is back training. But there are still certain players that need game time.

"Burke and Chadli have trained but still haven't had the game time we'd have liked.

"This international break might be good for us.

"Hopefully Nacer can get some time with Belgium and McAuley can get a bit of game time with Northern Ireland."
