Everton reserves travel to Leeds United this evening with a
squad full of Under-18 players.
The team to face the Yorkshiremen at the Atlantic Solutions
Stadium (kick off 7.00 pm) will be managed by Neil Dewsnip and Gary
Ablett, with normal boss Andy Holden on first team duty.
There is just one change from the team that defeated Newcastle
United 1-0 with goalscoring substitute Alan Kearney coming into the
starting 11 in place of Guillaume Plessis, who has been withdrawn
from the squad.
However, despite their tender years, the Blues second team has a
familiar look about it, with Sean Lake in goal, Sean Wright,
Lawrence Wilson, Patrick Boyle and Mark Hughes at the back and
Victor Anichebe and Andrew Fowler in attack.
Kearney, James Harris, Christian Seargeant and Bjarni Vidarsson
are in midfield, while the bench consists of Mathew Holt, Craig
Gallagher, Johan Davidsen, Paul Hopkins and schoolboy John
Leeds are currently lying six places and eight points behind the
Blues and for their youngsters it will be their second game in 48
hours after they were defeated 1-3 at Birmingham on Monday
The teams will get to know each other quite well over the next
week - as the corresponding fixture at Haig Avenue, Southport, will
be played next Tuesday with a 7.00 pm kick off.
Squad: Lake, Wright, Wilson, Boyle, Hughes, Harris, Seargeant,
Kearney, Anichebe, Fowler, Vidarsson, Holt, Gallagher, Davidsen,
