Francis Jeffers admits Saturday night's mini-derby is "not just another game" for Everton's Under-23s and has spent the week impressing on his young charges the importance of the clash at Tranmere Rovers' Prenton Park (7pm kick-off).
Jeffers played in a number of all-Merseyside encounters for Everton and insists the Under-23s contest is the "biggest" match of the season for everyone involved.
