Derby County U23s 0 - 2 Everton U23s
Everton U23s won at Derby County tonight with two goals from Tom Cannon.
And David Unsworth starts with pretty much his strongest squad, sans loanees Ellis Simms and Lewis Warrington, with Charlie Whitaker and a few others out injured. No sign of Billy Crellin, the new goalie.
Everton were a little slow to get going but took the lead against the run of play when Cannon controlled the ball well and made space to his left before firing an unstoppable shot into the top corner to put the Blues ahead.
Tom Cannon got a second when a lovely cross from Seb Quirk was bundled over the line by hin at the far post. And he almost got his hat-trick minutes later with a fabulous strike off another feed from Quirk down the right at was cleared off the line.
Dobbin then got clear with a straight run in on goal but fired his shot too close to the keeper. Derby had two very good chances near the end but failed to score.
Everton U23s: Tyrer, Quirk [Y:91'], John, Welch (56' Campbell), Astley, Anderson, Mills (66' Butterfield), Price [Y:37'], Cannon, Onyango (56' Hughes), Dobbin.
Subs not Used: Leban, Kristensen.

Hard to tell how much his very bad leg break at Man City last season has impacted on this season, but he is seldom a standout for the U23s, is he?
Just caught the last 10 minutes, so how has the game gone and individuals played in the first half?
