Another away tie, this time against Sheffield Wednesday, is the Blues' reward for beating Lincoln City 4-2 in the second round this evening.
The tie will be played the week commencing 23 September, just days after Everton travel to "Steel City" to face Wednesday's neighbours Sheffield United in the Premier League.

Gradually the numbers whittle down as the Competition progresses, luckily the 'big guns' will be contending with Europe as well and will prioritise that over this Cup. Just have to hope the draws continue to be kind to us, but let's beat these first.

We have seen today though that we can make multiple changes and still control the game. Thats progress. We will have some top players unable to make our bench.
I really liked the desire shown tonight, and that includes the attitude of our subs.

We had Ian Wilson on the left up against Mel Sterland their right back. I have never felt so sorry for a guy wearing a blue top as I did that day. Sterland just ran through and over him all match a bit like Jonah Lomu did to the England Rugby Union team.
Ian Wilson, now there was a player – not. I was there too for the League Cup final replay which ended in a draw v Villa.

Hopefully we can navigate this because round three is usually where we fall flat on our arse.

Always rated the lad Reach, he can put in decent crosses all day long, but with our new firepower up-top we should get through okay.

I went to that game and was on one of the coaches that got there for half time. Second half was crap but we still enjoyed it.

Hopefully we'll get a big allocation and should generate a cracking atmosphere. I fancy us strongly to progress.

My dad taped the highlights for me, and Howard Wilkinson's interview at the end - (Interviewer) "But Howard, you lost 5-0?", Wilkinson "Oh I don't know, it'll bring the crowds back won't it?"
