Garner delight

Garner delight

Joe Garner didn't take too much convincing about returning to Carlisle, the club he left Forest for in 2008 and has eventually ended up at Watford.

There was little to think about for him, as he told BBC Radio Cumbria, when Greg Abbott made that phone call to him wanting him to come in on loan for a month on Tuesday: 'I spoke to a few different clubs and when I heard the manager spoke to me and gave me a ring and I was just happy to come back.

'I don't think it was just the manager, I think I like the place really, I think the fans are really good and the people about the place, that is another thing about why I wanted to come back. It is just a normal place really, a nice place.'

What the future holds for the 24-year-old at Watford isn't clear, but what is clear is plenty of changes have been made at the Championship outfit following a summer takeover, change of management and influx of new players.

All Garner knows he can do is do his talking on the pitch: 'To be honest I don't really know what things are back at Watford, I have been asked to come here and play for a month and that is what I want to do, and I think the future will take care of itself.'

A good attitude to have!
