Ighalo confident ahead of Newcastle clash

16 September 2015, 16:20

London - Watford striker Jude Odion Ighalo says the win over Swansea last weekend has boosted their confidence and believes it will spur them on to win more matches this season.

The Hornets take on struggling Newcastle United this Saturday at St. James's Park, knowing that a win will continue to improve their fortunes on the table.

Watford are currently placed 13th on the log with 6 points after 5 games, but only secured their first win of the season against Swansea last weekend, with the 26-year old scoring the winner.

And he believes that win has done so much good for their confidence and they will go into the game against Newcastle United with much more confidence.

"The three points we got in our last game was really good for us," he said.

"We have been doing well as a team but we were not scoring enough and so we weren't winning games.

"But that win against Swansea will give us a boost and it is good for our confidence ahead of the next game (against Newcastle).

"With ten men against Swansea, we still fought hard and kept the win and I'm so happy we have showed that much composure and it is good for the team's confidence," Ighalo stated.

The Nigerian has now scored 2 goals for Watford this season, his first coming against Everton on the opening weekend. He is expected to start when they take on the Magpies this weekend.
