The Hornets progressed to the FA Cup quarter-finals at Leeds' expense thanks to a 1-0 win at Vicarage Road.
And that victory came as a result of a mix-up between Wootton and goalkeeper Marco Silvestri.
Wootton ended up netting but Evans once again protected his right-back, suggesting he simply got caught in two minds.
Evans: "I felt for Scott Wootton. He got caught in two minds and he'll be hurting after that." #lufc— Leeds United (@LUFC) February 20, 2016
Naturally, however, Leeds fans were not happy with a response they felt was inadequate after the Watford loss.
Many have wanted the 24-year-old dropped for some time yet Evans continues to persist with the out-of-position centre-back.
And Leeds supporters took to Twitter to express their frustration after the defeat.
It's not that United didn't work hard against Watford, showing effort in every area of the pitch against Quique Sanchez Flores' side... except the final third.
Wootton's error, meanwhile, proved costly - prompting fans to make their feelings clear on Twitter...
