Watford reached the FA Cup quarter-finals for the second time in four seasons after a hard-fought win against battling Queens Park Rangers.

As four minutes of added time were shown at the end of the first half, Capoue swept the ball home after a mis-hit from Tom Cleverley and it proved to be the winner.

Queens Park Rangers had to wait for this moment. Their previous appearance in the FA Cup fifth round had come at Wimbledon in 1997 and it is doubtful whether any club has since endured a more dismal record in the competition. The London club had won only four ties – each of them in the third round – before this season.

Watford were quick to applaud their 2,654 travelling supporters, who ended the evening singing of Wembley.

Prior to kick-off there was a minute’s applause for Gordon Banks who passed away this week.  It has to be said that nobody waited for the referee’s whistle to start the tribute.

BBC SportWatford midfielder Ashley Young struck his 10th goal of the season as the Hornets eased to a comfortable victory.

guardian“If anyone underestimated us at the start of the season they won’t be doing it now because we’re third,” said their manager Adrian Boothroyd. “And if they do so, they do it at their peril.” Where Boothroyd’s challenge at the start of the campaign was to raise his squad’s spirits, now he must prevent them from soaring out of sight.

BSAD imageBSAD report: For the game itself, both sides had one change to their starting line ups from Saturday’s wins. Watford replaced Darius Henderson, who was on the bench (meaning “bunch of red seats in front of the shack”), with Anthony McNamee. McNamee had substituted Henderson against Wolves. Rangers included former Villa striker Stefan Moore in place of Paul Furlong who was dismissed at Derby on Saturday for kicking Derby’s Wigan loanee Emerson Thome where it hurts most.

BSAD imageBSAD report: Saturday was great in every respect. Hell, even the second half tannoy announcement that trains were going no further south than Harrow proved to be insignificant – by the time I’d fortified myself for a nightmare journey with a suitable amount of Guinness, everything was running smoothly. And I have to mention the Irish Hornets, Pat and Joe, whose post-match contribution to the laughter and merriment and plain old happiness was second only to that of the team. It was a “top of the world, top of the league” sort of day. The kind that leaves you a million miles away from the drudgery and irritation of the working week, that feels like a very welcome holiday.
