Everton U23s 3 - 0 Doncaster Rovers U23s
Everton Under-23s beat Doncaster Rovers with 10 men at Southport this evening in the first encounter of this season's Premier League Cup.
The other U23 teams they will face in Group B are Blackburn Rovers and Sheffield United.
The game had been fairly even before Everton were hit by a double blow: firstly, Fraser Hornby going down with an ankle problem, and he could not continue, being replaced by youngster Kyle John. The game resumed and Matty Foulds was shown a straight red card for a two-footed lunge.
The visitors scored from the resulting free-kick but it was ruled out thanks to the linesman's flag, and up the other end, 10-men Everton took the lead through substitute Kyle John who steered the ball home after good link-up play on the right with Anthony Evans.
It was all action in the last 5 mins and Jack Kiersey came off the bench to replace Adineran, then Nathan Broadhead produced a fine finish to double Everton's lead. And in added time they incredibly made it 3-0 when Broadhead ran through to tee up Nathan Markelo and seal a fine win.
Everton U-23s: Hewelt, Charsley (46' Gibson), Foulds [R:40'], Markelo, Browning, Feeney [Y:49'], Evans, Adeniran [Y:83'] (87' Kiersey), Sambou, Hornby (42' John), Broadhead.
Subs not Used: Hilton, Mampala.

It's good to see Lewis Gibson playing all the second half. Doncaster are probably the weakest of the group, but a good win under the circumstances.
The top two of the group go into the last sixteen which is knockout.

Phill, was it you said you reckoned Lewis Gibson had been injured? This was the first sight of him this season. Likewise Jack Kiersey, who came on for the last few minutes.
