Watford striker Isaac Success up for Goal of the Month prize

Last updated
The Nigeria international netted his first league goal in two years and the effort has been shortlisted for October's best

Isaac Success' strike in Saturday's win over Huddersfield Town has been nominated for Watford's Goal of the Month award for October.
With the Hornets comfortably leading the bottom-placed side courtesy fantastic first-half efforts from Roberto Pereyra and Gerard Deulofeu, Success converted an intelligent free-kick move in the 80th minute to help his side to a comprehensive 3-0 victory.
The goal was the former Granada forward's third of the season, his second ever in the English top-flight since joining the Vicarage Road outfit in a big money deal in 2016.
Interestingly, the solo efforts from Pereyra and Deulofeu against David Wagner's team are also shortlisted.

The former has two goals in contention for the monthly award, with his and Etienne Capoue's strikes against Wolverhampton Wanderers rounding off the nominations.

Success has been Javi Gracia's first-choice striker in Watford's previous two games and the 22-year-old will hope to retain that spot when they travel to the St James' Park to take on Newcastle United for Saturday's league fixture.
