Super Eagles striker, Emmanuel Dennis has been nominated for Watford Man of the Match award, following their home win against Sheffield United in their first game of the season in the Championship on Monday, Newspremises reports.

Watford kicked off the new campaign with a hard fought 1-0 win against Sheffield at Vicarage Road with Dennis impressing.

He was involved in Watford’s first attempt on goal as early as the fifth minute, after playing in Senegal’s Ismaila Sarr whose strike from an angle hit the side-netting.

In the 56th minute Watford took the lead through a counter which saw Dennis sliding the ball to Sarr on the right, who then laid it for Brazilian Joao Pedro to slam home.

After the game Watford announced Dennis, Pedro and Sarr as the nominees for the Man of the Match award on their Twitter handle.

The winner will be decided by fans votes which is still ongoing as at the time of publishing this report.

Dennis finished as top scorer for Watford with 10 goals in the Premier League in his debut season, which was not enough to prevent them from relegation to the Championship.
