Andre Gray's goal a minute after coming on sent Watford into the FA Cup semi-finals with a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace.
Gray's goal 11 minutes from time sent Watford to Wembley for the second time in four years after a passionate quarter-final at Vicarage Road, which the hosts were good value for edging.
They took advantage of their increasing first-half momentum to move ahead on the half-hour when Etienne Capoue was teed up by Craig Cathcart after Vincent Guiata missed a punch from a corner. Michy Batshuayi levelled after half-time following a horrible mistake from Adrian Mariappa.
The tie looked to be heading to extra-time with clear chances at a premium late on until Gray, who had been on the pitch barely 60 seconds, slotted in Roberto Pereyra's perfect lob to seal their progression.
