Goals from Neil Webb, Lee Chapman and Brian Laws dumped Watford out of the FA Cup fifth round stage as Brian Clough's Nottingham Forest won a televised game 3-0 at Vicarage Road.

The tie represented the Hornets' eighth consecutive appearance at this stage of the competition, but their last for five seasons.
