Dunc In Southport Action

Duncan Ferguson will spearhead the Everton attack in this evening's Liverpool Senior Cup tie against Southport at Haig Avenue.

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 Pascucci.

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
term.

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.
