‘It Makes the Difference’ – Troost-Ekong responds after fans attend Watford match

The fans were allowed to support their own in Vicarage Road for the first time in 221 days

William Troost-Ekong was delighted with the fans cheering them on when Watford hosted West Bromwich Albion in a pre-season friendly on Saturday.

The fans were allowed to watch in Vicarage Road as the Hornets faced the Baggies, a game that ended goalless.

However, this did not detract from the joy of the Nigerian, who enjoyed the cheers in the stadium for the first time in 221 days.

“It was really fun; I think we all really enjoyed the game. [on Saturday], “Troost-Ekong told the club official portal.

“It was important to just get the minutes in, but playing in front of the fans is something we have been waiting for a long time.

“It’s a bit unfortunate that we could not give them a goal. I think we were very close a few times, I would like to hear the roar and cheering again.

‘When we came out and when they called us on the team page, it’s nice to hear all the fans here and we’ll need this support this year.
