​Watford manager Edwards admits Aston Villa striker Davis frustrated

Watford manager Rob Edwards has revealed how Keinan Davis is ‘frustrated’ with his recent playing time.

The Aston Villa loanee has managed just three substitute appearances for the Hornets since joining on a season-long loan.

Edwards said: “Whereas we’d normally have him at the training ground working on those fitness aspects and also doing some other general football training, we’ve not been able to do anything.

“The key thing is that we let him get over the illness and then set to work on his fitness. It really is a question of being patient. I’m frustrated, Keinan is frustrated but nobody can help being ill.

“We both want him out on the pitch in a Watford shirt again as soon as possible. Nobody wants that more than me because he is an exceptional player who will be brilliant for us. But I’m not prepared to compromise things now and then risk him being out for longer.”
