Reserve Return For Coleman
Irishman steps up recovery from thigh injury.
Seamus Coleman will step up his return from injury with a run-out for Everton Reserves today.

The 23-year-old is joined in the side by fellow Irishman Shane Duffy, who was this week called up to Giovanni Trapattoni’s senior squad for the first time.
Everton: Hahnemann, Browning, Toure, Dier, Duffy, Coleman, Forshaw, Barkley, Gueye, Baxter, Vellios. Subs: Davies, Kelly, Lundstram, Heneghan.
Newcastle: Alnwick, Nzuzi, Dummet, McDermott, Henderson, Kadar, Joan Edmundson, Ryan Donaldson, Phil Airey, Dan Taylor, Yven Moyo.
