The replay was rearranged after the first game was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at Prenton Park.

Emmanuel Monthe gave the home side the lead at half-time but Kaylen Hinds levelled for Watford after the break.

The game was forced into extra time and Mullin flicked on a cross from Liam Ridehalgh to set up a mouth-watering tie with the 12-time winners Manchester United at Prenton Park.
