Uche Ikpeazu glad to score debut goal for Port Vale

20 August 2015, 11:04

London - Watford loanee Uche Ikpeazu was delighted to get off the mark for League One club Port Vale in their 2 - 2 draw with Swindon Town on Tuesday night.

If the League Cup tie against Burnley is taken into consideration, the Anglo - Nigerian racked up 196 minutes of game time before he opened his account for the Valiants.

Fabien Robert had given Swindon Town the lead in the 13th minute but it lasted only eight minutes, with Uche Ikpeazu equalizing after bullying two defenders before slotting the ball past goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux.

''I vow to return all the glory to God, the first of many, God is good,'' Uche Ikpeazu said on social media.

In the second half at the County Ground, the hosts retained the lead, thanks to Anton Rodgers' strike in the 66th minute, but Sam Foley struck home the equalizer from the penalty spot in stoppage time.

The 20-year-old Uche Ikpeazu previously had loan spells with Crewe Alexandra and Doncaster Rovers.

His contract with The Hornets is due to run out at the end of the 2015-16 campaign.
