Watford sign two players on loan

Watford have signed two players on month-long loans ahead of Tuesday's Championship trip to Burnley.

Centre-half Darren Ward, 30, who started his career with the Hornets, joins on loan from Wolves.

Goalkeeper Mark Tyler, 31, has moved from Peterborough following the injuries to Mart Poom and Scott Loach.

Captain and centre-half Jay DeMerit is out with hamstring injury but Watford had Nigeria international Sam Sodje on loan from Reading as cover.

But Sodje has returned to Reading after just one game, having suffered a knee injury against Sheffield United.

Ward rejoins more than 11 years after making his Watford debut, and having made just one substitute appearance this season at table-topping Wolves.

Tyler has made more than 400 appearances for Peterborough, and will provide cover for Richard Lee.
