Scunthorpe picked up a second league win of the week to cause an upset as Watford's fine form came to an end On This Day in 2010.
A Michael O'Connor set-piece was only half cleared and Cliff Byrne drilled a low strike into the bottom corner.
Stephen McGinn and Jordon Mutch both went close to pulling a goal back for the hosts but Scunthorpe held on.
Hornets centre-half Adrian Mariappa also had a great chance in the dying moments but saw his header clear the crossbar.
