Luke Garbutt was the hero for Colchester United on Saturday as he bagged his second goal in as many games to rescue a point at Preston North End.
The England Under-20 international was suspended for his loan side's 2-1 defeat at Swindon last weekend but made amends by adding to his recent FA Cup strike against Sheffield United.
Everton’s loanees endured a relatively disappointing weekend on both cup and league fronts.
Making his seventh appearances for the club, Shane Duffy played 90 minutes in Yeovil’s 0-1 defeat to Wigan Athletic at Huish Park. The Glovers succumbed to their third loss in a row and now find themselves two points adrift at the foot of the Championship after 15 games.
There was a remarkable away win, a last-minute equaliser and a defeat to a fallen giant on something of a mixed weekend for Everton's on-loan trio.

The defender is coming to the end of his one-month loan spell with the Glovers and they hosted midtable Brighton on Saturday.
And in keeping a clean sheet at one end, Duffy came closest to finding the net at the other when his...
We could debate the merits of filling the visitors’ section and we might argue that we want Hull City’s corner of the Bullens Road Stand empty and our section at Villa Park packed to the rafters. Whatever your views are on this, we were asked by the Premier League to do a very specific job - to address the declining numbers of...
Luke Garbutt was the only Everton loan player involved in domestic action over the weekend as the international fixtures took over.
After agreeing to extend his stay at Colchester for a further month last week, the left-back completed another full game in League One against Walsall on Saturday afternoon.
The U’s were on course to record a clean sheet and, more importantly,...
