WATCH: Gordon Strike Secures Under-23s' Cup Progress

Anthony Gordon’s superbly-taken equaliser earned Everton Under-23s a 1-1 draw with Blackburn Rovers at Southport FC’s Merseyrail Community Stadium on Friday night – and you can now watch highlights from the Premier League Cup clash in the video above.

The point means the young Blues progress into the knockout stages of the competition.

Daniel Butterworth gave Blackburn the lead just after half-time. The Toffees pressed hard for an equaliser, with defender Lewis Gibson striking the post after a slick team move. 

Everton eventually made the breakthrough through man-of-the-match Gordon, who raced on to Bassala Sambou’s flick-on and coolly finished past Rovers goalkeeper Charlie Albinson to ensure the points were shared.
