Troy Deeney celebrates his late winner

The Hornets' promotion hopes looked over when, 60 seconds earlier, Leicester were awarded a penalty. But Manuel Almunia pulled off a stunning double save to keep out Anthony Knockaert's spot-kick, and also the rebound.

And as Watford broke up the other end the ball fell to Deeney in the penalty area to crash into an empty net and spark wild scenes of celebration. Watford trailed 1-0 from the first leg and twice levelled the tie on aggregate through Matej Vydra, either side of David Nugent's header.
