Sam Vokes hit a last-gasp equaliser to deny Watford the chance to go second in the npower Championship following a 3-3 draw at home to Burnley.
The Burnley striker, on as a 79th-minute substitute, struck three minutes into stoppage time as Sean Dyche enjoyed a happy return to Vicarage Road.
Dyche insisted there were no hard feelings despite being replaced by Gianfranco Zola as Hornets boss in the summer but he did his best to derail his old club's bid to reach the Premier League.
In fact, the warm reception he received from the home fans had barely died down when his Burnley side took the lead after just 39 seconds.
Charlie Austin got that one after Ross Wallace's initial shot was blocked and, after Troy Deeney had equalised with a fine curling strike from the edge of the area, went on to make it 28 for the season from the penalty spot after Marco Cassetti tripped former Hornets loanee Alex Kacaniklic.
But once again Burnley let their lead slip within five minutes, this time with centre-half Fitz Hall the unlikely creator.
Hall's clever pass played in Fernando Forestieri, who jinked inside Jason Shackell in the area before rifling his angled shot past Lee Grant.
Forestieri found a way through again in the 72nd minute when he curled in a cross from Cristian Battochio to put Watford back in front.
That looked like being enough to ensure Watford leapfrogged Hull into the automatic promotion places until Vokes latched on to Austin's header in injury time and slotted in the equaliser.
