FT | #watfordfc 2-3 Bristol City The Hornets went out of the Carabao Cup after a disappointing evening at The Vic. Capoue broke the deadlock for Watford shortly after the break, but the visitors struck back via Hinds and Reid. Holebas was sent off for a second bookable offence late in the game, before Eliasson added a third for the Robins in stoppage time, rendering Mariappa's 95th-minute header meaningless.
