CCC Watford v Southampton
Watford 5-2 Southampton
Adam Chambers grabbed a double as Watford thumped Saints to cruise into the quarter-finals of the Carling Cup.
Bruce Dyer headed the Hornets ahead from a superb Neal Ardley free-kick.
Chambers volleyed in from an Ardley corner to make it 2-0 and grabbed his second from Dyer's pull-back before Heidar Helguson crashed in a fourth.
Dexter Blackstock's tap-in and Brett Ormerod's header got Saints on the scoresheet while Hameur Bouazza hit the home side's fifth in between.
Dyer was the main attacking threat in the first quarter and sent a low shot narrowly wide and also fired a well-struck effort over the top as Watford looked to take advantage of a Saints side still searching a first League win under head coach Steve Wigley.
At the other end Anders Svensson, saw a free-kick flash across the goal and keeper rushed off his line to deny ex-Watford striker Kevin Phillips.
And Mikael Nilsson missed a glorious chance to put the visitors ahead when he badly miskicked from from Paul Telfer's cross.
But it was inevitable Dyer would be the man to provide the breakthrough when it came six minutes before the break.
The former Crystal Palace frontman reacted first to Ardley's superb inswinging free-kick to powerfully head the Hornets in front from eight yards.
Watford continued to threaten from set-pieces and another wicked delivery from Ardley was flicked on by Dyche and Chambers - on loan from West Brom - volleyed in his first senior goal on 52 minutes.
And Chambers only had to wait 10 minutes for his second, driving in with the aid of a deflection after more fine work from Dyer.
By this stage the Saints were being ripped apart and Brynjar Gunnarsson's delightful through-ball saw Helguson make it 4-0 with a stunning volley just three minutes later.
The visitors finally go on the scoresheet after 83 minutes when two substitutes combined and Blackstock converted Leandre Griffit's pass.
But seconds later Helguson teed up Watford's own substitute Bouazza to shoot past Alan Blayney the home side's fifth.
Griffit set up a second away goal late on, crossing for Ormerod who headed in off the bar.
It just gets worse and worse for Saints this season.
