Capital One Cup: Everton v Stevenage match preview
A look ahead to tonight’s Capital One Cup fixture at Goodison Park
Wednesday 28 August 2013
Although they are yet to win a match following the departure of now Manchester United boss David Moyes - Everton are also yet to lose a Premier League game. The Toffees drew their opening game of the season 2-2 away to Norwich. Many fans would be happy with the result but were expecting a win in their home game against West Brom at the weekend. Unfortunately the match ended 0-0 and the Toffees faithful will hope they can get their first win of the season in this tie.
Stevenage caused an upset in the first round of the cup beating Championship side Ipswich 2-0 at home. The Boro will be hoping they can cause another upset after a poor start to their League One campaign. They lost their opening three matches (including two home games) until finally beating Notts County away at the weekend.
KICK-OFF: Wednesday, 7.45pm
This will be the first meeting between the two sides in a competitive match.
Everton have not surpassed the fourth round since 2007.
