Ighalo looking to score more for Watford

14 August 2015, 17:15

London - Watford striker Jude Odion Ighalo is hoping to keep scoring after coming off the bench to score in their opening day draw against Everton.

The Nigeria striker was instrumental in Watford's return to the Premier League, with his 20 goals in the Championship last season.

And after coming off the bench to score in the 2-2 draw against Everton, the 26-year old says he's looking to keep scoring and keep helping his team. "My goal is to keep scoring and keep helping my team," he said.

"It was a great pleasure for me to score that goal and I'm hoping to improve on that and score more goals for Watford.

"It wasn't an easy game but I thank God that I scored and we didn't lose. The most important thing is the result of the game," Ighalo said.

Pressed if he has set any targets for himself in the Premier League, the former Udinese of Italy striker reiterates that he doesn't set targets for himself, but is just looking at getting better.

"I don't set any target for myself because I know I just have to keep working hard. If I keep working hard on the training ground, I believe I can score goals.

"It's the same for me everywhere I go. I just keep the focus and work hard and eventually I'm sure the goals will come," he added.

There were initial concerns whether he would get enough playing time in the Premier League but given his performance against Everton, he may as well have got himself a regular place in Qique Flores' side.
