Watford 2 (Nuttall 55, Donnelly 76) Millwall Lionesses 4 (Hincks 28, Gibbons 45, Lennon 59, Babajide 90)
Substitute Rinsola Babajide sealed a second FA WSL Continental Tyres Cup victory for Millwall Lionesses as they overcame Watford after an eventful second half.
It was Ashlee Hincks who opened the scoring with a speculative long range effort that deceived goalkeeper Trippoli Witney and squirmed into the net.
Stacie Donnelly came closest to equalising with a beautiful strike from distance five minutes before half time, forcing Frankie Gibbs into a clever save.
But the Millwall strikers doubled the advantage as the match moved into first-half injury time, with Hincks powering through the Watford midfield then laying it off to Fliss Gibbons, who curled an impressive shot into the top corner.
Watford got a goal back in the 55th minute, with Anneka Nuttall rising brilliantly to head home a corner. That only spurred the visitors on, with Ciara Sherwood winning a corner just before the hour mark, and Dionne Lennon netted firmly from the resulting cross.
The match was marred fifteen minutes from time by a leg injury to Millwall's Jordon Butler, who was helped off the pitch by her team mates, before Donnelly grabbed a goal back for Watford almost immediately after the restart.
But Babajide came off the bench and wrapped things up with a terrific solo effort in added time.
