Gillingham dump Watford out of EFL Cup

Watford are out of the EFL Cup after defeat at Gillingham.

Bradley Dack struck in extra time as Gillingham came from behind to stun Premier League Watford 2-1 and reach the third round of the EFL Cup.

Walter Mazzarri looked set to enjoy his first win as Hornets boss when Odion Ighalo came off the bench to fire them ahead before Dack missed a penalty.

But Mark Byrne struck eight minutes from the end of normal time to level the scores before Dack's heroics as Gillingham beat top-flight opposition for the first time since dumping Portsmouth out of this competition at the same stage in 2005/06.
