Daniel Fox will look to build on his steady start to the season
with another run-out for the reserves against Birmingham City at
Southport's Haig Avenue this evening, kick-off 7.00pm.
The young defender was rewarded for his performances in the
Barclays Premier Reserve League this season with a place on the
substitutes' bench for last weekend's Premiership clash
with Aston Villa.
Admittedly Fox's inclusion was due to injuries to Gary
Naysmith and Joseph Yobo but it is a clear indication that the
18-year-old is in the thoughts of Blues Boss David Moyes.
Joining Fox in tonight's starting line-up is striker Nick
Chadwick, who plays after passing a late fitness test at Bellefield
Eddy Bosnar is handed another opportunity in central defence but
Anthony Gerrard is still ruled out after sustaining a knee injury
against Aston Villa a fortnight ago.
Again it is a predominantly young side Andy Holden is forced to
field with Iain Turner, James Vaughan, Scott Phelan and Stephen
Wynne all in the starting eleven.
The Blues go into this evening's game having only been
beaten once in the last five and a result against Birmingham would
undoubtedly boost confidence ahead of a busy November.
Everton (from): Turner, Wynne, Fox, Hughes, Bosnar, Phelan,
Seargeant, Harris, Chadwick, Vaughan, Wilson, Fowler, Gallagher,
Anichebe, Wright, Boyle, Vidarsson.
