Mazzarri: Success fighting to be fit

Watford manager Walter Mazzarri is pondering the fitness of Nigerian forward Isaac Success ahead of Saturday's clash with Bournemouth.

The 20-year-old impressed off the bench in the 2-0 defeat at Burnley on Monday, a disappointing result for the Hornets after impressive back-to-back victories over West Ham and Manchester United.

"Success is a player that didn't do the whole preparation with the team during the summer," Mazzarri said. "There are many things that we have to consider.

"Success is a player that has a lot of quality and when he came on as a substitute he has always had a great impact on the game.

"If he starts we have to consider as well if he's got the whole 90 minutes in the legs or not. We've got three substitutes to use and we have to decide who starts with the first team and who will come on as a substitute."
