Watford were declared the first Premier League side into the sixth round of the FA Cup after a tight encounter with Championship outfit Leeds United. A Scott Wooten own goal was enough for the Hornets to secure their place in the next round in a uninspiring game.
If you were watching the game, then there are many people that feel sorry for you as watching paint dry would’ve been more entertaining. The second half improved which was dominated by the hosts as Troy Deeney and Almin Abdi had glorious chances to make the tie more comfortable, while on the evidence of Lewis Cook’s performance the youngster still has a lot to learn in order to make the step up to England’s top flight.
Leeds manager Steve Evans almost got himself sent off with his over excitement on the touchline, but apart from that this tie failed to live up to his expectations.

#Watford are the most boring fans in the country. Remember them going straight home to bed after playoff final '06, didn't even celebrate
