82' Everton's final switch sees Courtney Duffus come on for Hallam Hope. Still 3-2. #EFCU21
72' Another change for the Blues as George Green replaces debutant Sam Byrne. 3-2. #EFCU21
71' PENALTY SAVED! Long is brought down in the box by Watson but the striker sees his spot-kick pushed away by Smith. Still 3-2. #EFCU21
66' Substitution for Everton as Kieran Dowell comes on for his Under-21s debut. The midfielder replaces Joe Williams. #EFCU21
51' GOAL. Leicester hit back immediately, Blyth slotting home a penalty after Stanek had fouled Hopper. 3-2. #EFCU21
49' GOAL! Everton start the second half the same way they did the first as Browning steers home at the back post. 3-1. #COYB #EFCU21

45' One minute of added time at the end of the first half. 2-1. #EFCU21
38' Ledson has a go from 25 yards but his shot whistles a foot over the bar. The marauding Galloway looking impressive. Still 2-1. #EFCU21
28' GOAL. An own goal halves the deficit as Ledson's pass back proves too strong for Stanek. 2-1. #EFCU21
16' Pennington and Browning, who can also both play at full-back, are the centre-halves. Jones, also adept in midfield, is at right-back.
