Super Eagles forward Odion Ighalo continued  scored again on Saturday to his club his  Watford from defeat.

He scored  a 45th minute equalizer for the side to avoid what perhaps would have ended as defeat in the hands ofAFC Bournemouth.

According to reports, Bournemouth had shot into the lead in the 28th minute thanks to Glenn Murray who converted a brilliant assist from teammate Matt Ritchie.  The strike of course gave AFC Bournemouth bench and fans a lot to celebrate, but the jubilation was short lived when the Nigerian international rattled defenders just before the end of the first half to level scores at 1-1 in front of 11,187 spectators at the Vitality Stadium (Bournemouth, Dorset).

Although the hosts maintained 53% possession as against Watford's 47%, the remaining half of the game failed to provide further goals for either side.

Prior to Saturday's match, Ighalo, who has so far made about 41 appearances for the side with 24 goals in the kitty has recorded goals this season against Newcastle and Swansea respectively. He scored the only goal in Watford's win over Swansea City and two goals in 2-1 away win over Newcastle.
