Watford delight at upset victory
Chambers scored twice after half-time
Watford manager Ray Lewington described his side's 5-2 Carling Cup upset of Premiership side Southampton as a triumph for hard work.

"If Southampton had scored first it would have been difficult for us but we got the goals and in the second half we were just terrific," he said.

Just 1-0 up at the break, Lewington admitted: "We said in the dressing room we might have a reaction.

"But we got our intentions in first with the quick goals."

In response, James Chambers scored twice in 10 minutes at the start of the second half to put the hosts out of reach.

Lewington added: "Now we are in the quarter-finals and although you have to think about the money side it would be great if we drew a big club here.

"Playing here [at Vicarage Road] gives us a chance like it did against Chelsea in the FA Cup last year."
