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
''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.For
