Joao Pedro has promised that there will be more goals to come following his first strike for Watford in the derby day win over Luton Town.

The Brazilian's goal proved to be the winner for the Hornets in their first derby with the Hatters for 14 years, and it came on his 19th birthday.

Speaking to the club website, Pedro said it was something he had been working hard to produce.

“I am very happy to get my first goal in a Watford shirt today,” he said.

“It's even more special because it has happened on my birthday, so it is an important day for me and my family.

“The goal was very important, even more so because it is a derby. I've been working hard for this and I'm going to keep it up."

Helping Pedro up front was the returning Ismaila Sarr, who caused Luton all sorts of problems throughout the match.

The striker was pleased to work alongside the Senegalese winger and now wants to work on fine-tuning his goalscoring as Watford continue to look for promotion this season.

“In the past, I would shoot, and the ball wasn’t hitting the back of the net. As I have said to my friends, today on my birthday I got the first goal,” he said.

“From now on, the ball is going to continue to hit the back of the net. Once you get your first, the rest follow.

“Isma is a great player, he helps me a lot and he makes the game easier; he is fast and I’m really happy to be able to play alongside him and every day we are improving our game.”
