He may have had a stop-start season so far, but when Ken Sema says he’s ready – and then hammers home a goal like the winner at Swansea – you know he means it.

The Swedish international has not started a game for Watford since September 2, with injury restricting him to just two substitute appearances since.

He came off the bench at half-time last night to score the goal that earned the Hornets their first away win since January 2, and give Sema his first of the season.

Having found the top corner he then wheeled away to be mobbed by his teammates as well as half the Watford bench.

“The celebration was so many feelings, so many emotions,” he said.

“It’s like, I’m here now, ready. I have been away for quite a long time, I’ve been on the bench and I’ve been trying to play more. I feel good and I showed the coach that I’m ready now with the goal and the win.”

Sema revealed that Valerien Ismael sent him on during the interval with the instruction to attack.

“The manager wanted me to come on and give more energy, have the ball and go forward, which I like to do – influence the games with crosses and one-against-one actions. Then I got that shot on target!” he said

I enjoyed it today. I’m very happy to get the win, that’s first, but then obviously the goal was good.

“I had the ball on the left, I can’t remember who gave me the ball, maybe Yáser Asprilla, but he gave it to me and as soon as I had the ball, I knew I was going to score. I felt it in me.

“I wanted to play. I came on at half-time and then during the game I got a finger in my eye, and I felt a little bit strange, but then afterwards I kept going and felt good. Obviously, the goal happened and now we’re here.”

Now one of the longer serving players at the club, Sema knows Watford need to build on their first consecutive victories for 12 months.

Two wins in a row and now we go to Vicarage Road again,” he said.

“Hopefully another win against Millwall, so let’s go. The fans were always at 100 per cent so I’m happy for today.

“They mean so much to us as a team and as a group, so please keep shouting and keep being loud and let’s go again on Saturday.”
