Isaac Success insists he is not getting tired of the super-sub tag he is fast earning at Vicarage Road, after netting his first Watford goal only seven minutes into his latest appearance from the bench.

His 65th-minute header earned the Hornets a point in their 2-2 draw with Bournemouth with Success again playing a significant role from the bench, five days after he had looked the brightest spark in a dismal performance for the Golden Boys at Burnley.

The 20-year-old has made a big impact every time he has come on for the Hornets this season, and will have strengthened calls to receive a first start of the campaign when Watford next turn out at Middlesbrough after the international break.

But Success is not - publicly, at least - worried about when he will finally see his name in Walter Mazzarri’s starting 11.

He said: "I’m a Watford player and if I get a chance to play in any way, I have to help the team, even if it’s only two or three minutes.

“It’s not really a relief to score my first goal, it’s a goal for the team and me, but I’m happy about it.

“It’s not frustrating being a substitute, I’m just happy to be among the 18 players selected for the game. 

“Every time I get to play I just want to help the team. I just have to keep working hard and see what comes up.

“I brought a lot of energy to the team when I came on, that’s what I’m about. As a striker, I’m ready to play anywhere in the forward line and it’s just up to the coach to give me the instruction where in particular I have to play.”

Success paid tribute to the help of fellow striker Odion Ighalo, who was the first face looked for the minute his header beat Artur Boruc and nestled in the back of the Cherries’ net.

The Nigerian, who has just received his first call-up to the Super Eagles’ national side, has considered his compatriot a “big brother” to him in recent years, after first meeting in Spain at Granada for a brief period in 2014, before reuniting this summer in Hertfordshire.

Success replaced Ighalo in Mazzarri’s side on Saturday, but after their respective performances at Burnley, it was somewhat of a surprise that the change was made shortly after half-time rather than in the starting 11.

He said: “I have always looked up to him. He’s very calm, he told me how to be like that on the pitch.”

“No [I’m not trying to take his place]. Every player in the team deserves chances to get into the team and I just want to play, I don’t know if I’m taking someone’s position but he’s a good player.

“When I scored the first thing I did was look at the bench and he was celebrating more than me, and I was really happy, he’s like an African brother. He’s like a big brother to me.”
