Stevenage v Everton

Team News

Seamus Coleman is Everton's only fresh injury problem ahead of Saturday's FA Cup trip to Stevenage.

Roberto Martinez confirmed the Irishman's absence at his pre-match press conference on Thursday and also said he wasn't expecting any of his other injured players to return for the game at Broadhall Way.

He said: "The only difference from the squad on Monday is Seamus Coleman. He picked up a minor soft tissue injury, so he'll miss the weekend and we'll assess him from there.

"He adds to Ross Barkley and Steven Pienaar who are still unavailable, on top of the long-term injuries to Arouna Kone, Darron Gibson and Gerard Deulofeu.

"Antolin Alcaraz is still recovering well but will be missing at the weekend.  Apart from that, everyone else is available."

Form

Victories over Portsmouth, Stourbridge and Doncaster Rovers may have seen Stevenage through to the last 32 of the FA Cup but the club's League One status remains in jeopardy, with the Hertfordshire outfit currently four points adrift of safety at the foot of the third tier table.

That said, Graham Westley's men were unbeaten in three at home before last weekend's 1-0 defeat to Notts County and proved their willingness to battle in the last round, that victory over Championship outfit Donny coming via a five-goal thriller.

Midfielder Greg Tansey, grandson of former Everton star Jimmy, would have been a player to watch but recently completed a move to SPL outfit Inverness Caledonian Thistle, meaning 12-goal top scorer Francois Zoko is likely to provide the greatest threat.

Everton, meanwhile, will be looking to maintain their unbeaten start to 2014 and reach the last 16 of the competition for the fourth successive season.

Martinez's men have lost only once in their last 16 games in all competitions and have kept two clean sheets in their last three outings.

Last Meeting

Everton 2-1 Stevenage, 28 August 2013

Everton have only met Stevenage once in their 136-year history and that was five months ago in the second round of the Capital One Cup.

In what was only Roberto Martinez's third competitive game in charge, the Toffees were pushed hard by their League One opponents before eventually securing a safe passage through in extra-time.

A shock had been on the cards at Goodison Park when Luke Freeman put the visitors ahead with 36 minutes played.

However, a debut goal from Spanish winger Gerard Deulofeu levelled things up in first-half injury time, before Marouane Fellaini grabbed the 115th-minute winner to spare any Blues blushes.

As well as Deulofeu, the game against Graham Westley's men also saw first competitive starts for three other Everton players - Joel Robles, John Stones and Arouna Kone.
