What do you do when your side is under pressure? Win 5-0, of course...
And to make matters worse for the home team, goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli was sent off early in the game. The Fulham shot stopper took to Twitter after the heavy defeat to apologise to team-mates and supporters.
Absolutely gutted about tonight... Apologies to all the boys and the fans tonight.— marcus bettinelli (@marcusbettss) December 5, 2014
It was a case of nothing but celebration for Watford's Daniel Pudil, however, who thanked the Hornets faithful for cheering the side on to a huge victory.
Slavisa Jokanovic's side are now back into the play-off places, with Watford only three points off league-leaders Derby County (who play later today).
For Fulham, meanwhile, their recent momentum was checked with at the very least a hint of a reality check. Kit Symon's team are 16th in the Championship with 22 points from 20 games.
