Super Eagles forward nominated for Watford goal of the month

Watford coach Javi Gracia has revealed why Super Eagles forward Isaac Success has improved from a loan spell at Malaga second half of last season.

The 22-year-old Nigeria international Success provided only one assist in nine La Liga appearance for the relegated Spanish outfit last term but former Granada star scored twice in nine games in all competitions for the Hornet which earned him a recall to national team set up for a doubleheader against Libya this month

Watford manager Gracia admits that Success has regained his sharpness and form which is helping the team.

"Sometimes the players need to spend time on loan and with other clubs to have another experience and realise the chance they have playing for Watford.

"At this moment, Isaac knows it is a good chance for him. He is working hard, had a good pre-season with a good attitude and is waiting for the minutes to show what he can do.

"He has worked really hard and you can see he is really fit. He is competing very well and is strong against centre-backs.

"I think he is helping us and the most important thing for me is I know he is ready when the team needs him to be.” Gracia said in his pre-match conference ahead of Watford’s home clash against Bournemouth.

Watford are currently placed 6th in the English Premier League table with 13 points from seven games.
