Super Eagles forward Odion Ighalo is delighted Watford ended their four match losing streak by defeating Newcastle United 2-1 but more excited that they are eight points away from safety.
Ighalo took his tally for the season to 14 goals in the premier league, just two behind topscorer Jamie Vardy of Leicester City.
‘It was a great a feeling to comeback after 4 defeats. The coach, fans and club owners were all delighted,’ Ighalo told Brilafm.
‘I am glad with the goal but the objective is now to get our 40 points and ensure that we keep the focus. I was not really under much pressure but not that we have recovered.
‘I hope it doesn’t end because we’re working hard to get as much point.’
