The Hornets were hammered 5-1 at Sincil Bank by fourth division champions-in-waiting Lincoln City.
The game saw the Imps manager Graham Taylor pick up £900 having backed his side to reach 100 league goals by the end of the season at odds of 6/1 earlier in the campaign.
The City side featured three players destined to follow Taylor to Vicarage Road: Dennis Booth, Sam Ellis and John Ward.
The match was the last of Scottish centre-half Water Lees' 253 outings for the club.
