London - Watford's Nigerian forward Isaac Success says he has 'a lot more to offer the fans and the team' following his return from injury.

Success has been out for a month with a hamstring strain, but feels he is ready to return to training.

The former Granada marksman has not yet been able to find his feet in England, scoring only once in eight Premier League games, seven of those off the bench.

But he remains hopeful his fortunes will improve in the remaining months of the season.

"I'm good and I'm getting better. I'm hoping to train with the team on Monday," Success told Watford's official website.

"It's frustrating as I'm trying to make my name in the Premier League," he continued.

"I haven't had the chance to impress. Everyone knows my ability but I've got more to offer to the fans and the team."

The 21-year-old Nigerian international laughed off claims that his injury setbacks were due to some kind of curse.

"I heard that," he said. "I'm a Christian and I really don't believe in that. 

"Injury comes when you are a professional and most of the time hard work can help prevent it. 

"I've really started working harder than before to prevent injuries. I believe I'm coming back stronger and stronger than before."
