Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo continued his impressive form in the Barclays Premier League with a goal that secured Watford a vital 1-1 draw against Bournemouth on Saturday.
The Nigerian international brought the Hornets back on level terms on the stroke of half time after Murray had given the home side a 28th minute lead for his fifth goal of the season.
Glenn Murray scored and had a late penalty saved as Bournemouth were held to a home draw by Watford.
Summer signing Murray, replacing the injured Callum Wilson, nodded in a Matt Ritchie cross to put the hosts ahead.
Watford were gifted an equaliser when Cherries keeper Artur Boruc passed to Odion Ighalo, who side-footed home.
Bournemouth were awarded a penalty for Etienne Capoue’s foul on Adam Smith, but Murray’s effort was pushed away by Hornets keeper Heurelho Gomes.
Though Boruc’s error and Murray’s miss will frustrate Cherries boss Eddie Howe, his side did survive a Ben Watson half-volley hitting the crossbar.
Bournemouth beat Watford to the Championship title by a point last season; this was a third draw between the sides in their past four meetings.
