New Watford boss Brendan Rodgers was encouraged by his team's display as the Hornets pushed us all the way in the Carling Cup.
Tamas Priskin capped a bright start for the home side with the opening goal after 13 minutes but that goal provided the wake-up call we needed and we took control from there.
Roman Pavlyuchenko scored from the spot in first half injury time before Darren Bent's 76th-minute winner sent us through to the semi-finals.
"I thought we were very good for the first 25 minutes," said Rodgers, who only took over last week. "The idea of us playing football was there, we made a bright start and scored a great goal.
"Then we stopped passing the ball and started to complicate the game a bit. I was very disappointed at half-time to give away the penalty.
"That bit of quality they've got then came through.
"I'm very proud. I've only been here one week and the players are a terrific bunch. It gives me big hope for the future. I'm very proud of their performance."
