Swansea City U23s 0 - 2 Everton U23s

Everton's U23s are into the Premier League Cup final after beating Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium this afternoon.

David Unsworth's Premier League 2 Champions scored a goal in each half through strikers Fraser Hornby and Bassala Sambou to book their place in the final where they will face Newcastle United.

After just 14 mins following a confident start from the visitors, Anthony Gordon whipped in a dangerous free kick and Fraser Hornby found space in the Swansea box to volley home and put the Blues ahead.

After the break, Sambou really should make it 2-0 when one-on-one but hit his shot straight at the keeper.

The second goal came after 74 mins, when a shot by Foulds wasn't dealt with by the goalkeeper, and Sambou reacted first to slot it home and consolidate Everton's advantage.

Everton U23s: Virginia, Astley, Feeney, Gibson, Galloway, Bowler (87' John), Markelo, Adeniran, Gordon (67' Foulds), Hornby (85' Denny), Sambou.
Subs not Used: Hilton, Mampala.
