Ighalo praises teamwork as he nets ninth goal of the season

06 December 2015, 08:12

Abuja - Jude Odion Ighalo has been speaking after scoring his ninth goal of the season to help Watford to a 2-0 win over Norwich on Saturday.

The Nigerian international was instrumental as Watford defeated fellow Premier League new-boys Norwich City 2-0, winning the penalty for Troy Deeney's opener before adding a strike of his own in stoppage time.

"The key today was that we pressed them high and we didn't allow them to play, so they played long balls and that's what we were waiting for," he told the Watford Weekend Post-Match Review.

"When we got the ball we tried to play and counter them, so the game-plan really worked and we played really good today.

"I think today was one of our best games, after the West Ham game, so we want to keep pushing and see how far we are going to go at the end of the season."

It was a real team effort according to Ighalo, who says focus will now quickly turn to next weekend's long trip north to Sunderland.

"The teamwork has been great, you see the way we have been pushing ourselves and the team really worked hard from the first minute until the last minute today," said Ighalo.

"We can't single out any player today because from Heurelho to the top everybody really worked hard and we deserved the three points.

"We are happy and we just want to forget about today now because it's gone. We are thinking about the next game because we want to try and win games.

"We know we're going to have some difficult times, but if we keep picking up points now we know we are going to be safe at the end of the season."
