The Super Eagles vice-captain has not been on the losing side since arriving the Championship a couple of weeks ago, but there was no victory dance for the former Udinese man on Saturday
William Troost-Ekong starred from start to finish for Watford at the Vicarage Road against Bournemouth, but both former Premier League sides could only settle for a 1-1 draw.
In a tough clash between two recently relegated clubs, Watford took the lead after just 12 minutes thanks to Stipe Perica following good work from Senegalese forward Ismaila Sarr.
But Chris Mepham equalised for the visitors deep into second-half injury time to earn a share of the points.
Nigerian international defender Troost-Ekong made his Watford debut in the Hornets’ impressive 1-0 win at Derby County last week. But he didn’t make it off the bench as another 3-1 victory was recorded over Blackburn Rovers a few days later.
However, the former Udinese defender started his second game for Watford against Bournemouth and he was solid in defence all game until a last-gasp loss in concentration denied coach Vladimir Ivić’s men the three points at stake.
The two other Nigerian footballers at Watford, Isaac Success, and Tom Dele-Bashiru, were not listed for the encounter.
While Dele Bashiru has featured twice for the Hornets this term, former Granada man, Success, has not played for Watford since a 2-3 defeat to Everton back in February.
