Ighalo appeals to fans for support

21 August 2015, 20:33

London - Watford goal poacher Odion Ighalo has appealed to the supporters of the club to turn out en masse to cheer The Hornets to victory in their Premier League clash at home to Southampton on Sunday.

The Nigeria international had good words to say about the fans for their encouragement in their last game against West Brom at Vicarage Road despite Watford unable to secure maximum points from that fixture.

''Since I arrived at Watford, the fans have been amazing. They’ve done a great job supporting the team, and even if we are losing, they are always behind us,'' Odion Ighalo told watfordfc.com.

''They were great on Saturday against West Brom, and I hope that will continue.''

The Watford number 24 continued: ''We will win some and lose some, but we need them to stay behind us and give us confidence to keep on fighting.

''We need them to come in numbers again on Sunday to support us, and I’m sure we can give them a result because we have a good team here with good players.''

Odion Ighalo was ignored by Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, when he announced his provisional squad list for the upcoming African Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania.
