Stefano Okaka looking forward following Southampton defeat

Okaka | “We Have To Carry On & Work Harder”

It was an afternoon of mixed emotions for Stefano Okaka on Saturday, as he marked his return to the starting line-up with a goal that wasn't enough to prevent the Hornets falling to a 4-3 defeat against Southampton. 

The Italian front-man struck in the 79th minute with a smart finish to bring his side level at 2-2, and admits his joy at scoring was quickly replaced with the disappointment that this couldn't be the catalyst to go on and snatch all three points. 

"I was happy to score because I thought now we can win, because we played good football but after five minutes we conceded another unlucky goal," he told watfordfc.com

"This is football and now it's finished, so we must do something good against Crystal Palace in our next match.

"At this level you work so hard to score one goal so to concede four goals like we did is so sad, but it's finished and we have to carry on and work harder for a result next time."
