BSAD report: I was only nine at the time, but this match left such an impression that some years later I wrote about it in my English ‘O’ Level (the examiner must have been a Watford fan…I got an ‘A’!).
100 Greatest Watford wins- No.15: With the biggest cup tie in years coming up, it looked like Watford were in danger of falling apart. They were having to fight for their lives to stave off an immediate return to Division Three. Every time they hauled themselves upwards, they slipped back into trouble again. At times they seemed unable to cope with the step up and yet in the FA Cup they had produced some of their most accomplished displays of the season.
This was the first game played since the FA Cup win over Gillingham which put us in the Sixth Round for only the second time in our history.
