100 Greatest Watford Wins- No.77: Having beaten top flight Birmingham City at Vicarage Road in the third round, Watford were disappointed to get an away draw for the next round match. Southampton were going very well in the Third Division and had thrashed First Division Manchester City 5-1 at Maine Road in the previous round. Watford’s manager Ron Burgess knew he had to pull off another tactical masterstroke if they were to avoid defeat at The Dell and bring the Saints back to Vicarage Road.
