Watford head coach Javi Gracia hopes to have both Jose Holebas and Gerard Deulofeu available for the FA Cup final against Manchester City.
The Hornets are set to appeal against the red card shown to Holebas during the 4-1 Premier League loss at home to West Ham on Sunday, with Gracia feeling his defender had been hard done by in being dismissed for a foul on Michail Antonio.
The Spaniard told his club's official website: "I only say I can't believe a player will miss the final for that play. For that contact, I can't believe it.
"Maybe it was a light foul, maybe a soft foul, but I can't agree with that decision. It's difficult to accept knowing you have an important game the next week."
Meanwhile, Gracia was calm about having had to substitute goalscorer Deulofeu just before the hour mark, insisting that the move was merely precautionary.
He added: "I think it's a little problem. He had similar problems during the week and I think he will be ready for the final."
The loss to the Hammers left Watford in 11th place in the final Premier League standings, with the Irons taking the final top-half spot as a result of their victory at Vicarage Road.
The Hornets move on to prepare for the task of trying to defeat Manchester City in the FA Cup final, with the Citizens having already won the Carabao Cup and the Premier League this season.
Watford can be backed at 7/1 to lift the FA Cup for the first time in their history, with Gracia's side 25/1 to win 1-0 in normal time and 50/1 to triumph after extra-time.
