100 Greatest Watford Wins- No.81: Three days after knocking West Ham out of the FA Cup to confirm that Watford could live with the top sides, they handed Derby County the sort of merciless beating they’d been threatening for a while.

100 Greatest Watford Wins- No.93: If there is one moment that sums up the brilliance of Nigel Callaghan it would have to be his goal against West Ham. It was a second of quick-thinking genius that sealed another cup upset.
