Alex Nyarko will continue his Everton comeback at Leigh
RMI's Hilton Park on Saturday.
The Ghanaian has been left behind on Merseyside as the rest of
the squad travel to Scotland in a bid to give him as much match
practice as possible.
Li Tie, Thomas Gravesen, Scot Gemmill and Tobias Linderoth will
all contest the central midfield placings and by remaining at
Goodison, Nyarko will be guaranteed two 90 minute workouts in the
space of five days.
"We're pleased to have him back and we'll give him
every opportunity," David Moyes told evertonfc.com.
"But there are several midfield players who are ahead of
him at present and they'll be given the nod before Alex.
"I think that everyone will understand that those boys
worked really hard last year to boost the club and they all played
a part. Alex didn't do that, so the boys who were here last
year will be given that opportunity first and foremost."
The £4.5 million signing from Lens is set to line up
alongside the likes of Nick Chadwick, Kevin McLeod and Leon Osman
against the Nationwide Conference club.
