Everton Under 21s are in action at the Pirelli Stadium tonight (October 1) as they take on League One side, Burton Albion.
David Unsworth’s young Blues are unbeaten in all competitions this season and will aim to preserve that record when they face Nigel Clough’s men in the Leasing.com Trophy.
The Toffees were victorious in their opening group stage encounter with Mansfield Town, helped greatly by Anthony Gordon scoring a wonderful individual goal, to level the scores at 1-1.
Everton went on to win in dramatic fashion, with a penalty shootout at Field Mill.
Blues’ fans will be hoping to catch a glimpse of some more magic from young starlet Anthony Gordon tonight, who is currently training under Marco Silva with the first team.
If Everton win, under the (hopefully fully-functioning) Pirelli lights, they will knock The Brewers off their perch as Northern Group E leaders.
