Duncan Ferguson will spearhead the Everton attack in this
evening's Liverpool Senior Cup tie against Southport at Haig
Ferguson is suspended for the first three Premiership matches of
the season which is why David Moyes is assessing his alternative
striking options in the first team friendlies.
The big Scot is joined in the 14-man squad for this evening's
fixture by fellow internationals, Niclas Alexandersson and Li Tie.
Also included are Peter Clarke, who is Southport born and bred,
Kevin McLeod, Nick Chadwick and young Italian trialist, Patrizio
Southport themselves are managed by former Toffees' defender
Mike Walsh and they will be keen to give their own supporters
something to cheer about after suffering relegation from the
Conference into the Unibond League last
The Sandgrounders have done fairly well thus far in their
pre-season build up, losing with credit against a strong Manchester
City side (1-3) and a virtual full strength Wigan Athletic (0-3).
Those reversals apart, they have chalked up comfortable victoires
against Congleton and Skelmersdale United.
Tonight's match at Haig Avenue kicks-off at 7.45pm.
Everton squad: Turner, Clarke, Li Tie, Alexandersson, McLeod,
Schumacher, Ferguson, Chadwick, B.Moogan, A.Moogan, O'Hanlon,
Gerrard, Brown, Pascucci.
