Forgotten Super Eagles forward Isaac Success is seeking to end 16 months goal drought Watford travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on Sunday.
The 24-year-old Benin-born star has been a bit-part player for the Hornets since the start of the season and the BJ Foundation Academy graduate has only made five substitute appearances in 26 Premier League games so far this season.
Success scored when a strong lineup of Watford Under 23s lost 3-2 to Queens Park Rangers on Monday evening, and the Nigerian would feel he did just enough to get gaffer, Nigel Pearson’s nod for his first start since March 9, 2019, when he played for 66 minutes in Watford’s 3-1 loss at Manchester City.
Former Granada star has been subbed on 43 times in 54 games which means he has started just 11 times and has been on the bench for all 90 minutes 21 times.
Success has scored only two goals in the Premier League 1,604 minutes of football and he last scored 16 months ago when Watford beat relegated Huddersfield Town at the Vicarage Road.
