London - Nigerian striker, Odion Ighalo, continued his superb scoring run for Watford in the English Championship by scoring a couple of goals in his side's 3-0 win over Rotherham United on Tuesday, SuperSport reports.

The former Udinese man scored his goals, which sandwiched that of Troy Deeney, inside the hour mark to help his English club stay within playoffs in the standings.

Ighalo with his first real chance of the match held at Vicarage Road scored. The 25-year-old pounced on a chance and calmly finished off with his left foot past Rotherham goalkeeper Adam Collin for the opening goal of the contest in the 16th minute.
