Conor McAleny's extra-time header booked Everton Youths place in the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup after a 1-0 win over Middlesbrough at Billingham Synthonia last night.

Neil Dewsnips side had to wait until the 103rd minute to take the lead, but McAlenys header proved decisive.

Everton produced some good football throughout and also hit the woodwork three times.

Captain Jose Baxter was at the heart of much of Evertons good work and saw an effort come back off the post deep into injury time with Everton already 1-0 up.

Ross Barkley had hit the bar and the post in the second half while Nathan Craig saw an free-kick effort ruled out at the start of the second half for an infringement spotted by the assistant referee.

Everton keeper Adam Davies had to be alert to save Cameron Parks 25-yard, while the Boro striker also hit the angle of the post and bar in the first half. But Evertons youngsters ran out deserved winners and can look forward to another Youth Cup tie in the New Year.

Everton impressed from the start at Deepdale. Nathan Craig saw Lilywhites' keeper Dominic Comrie punched his free-kick away after three minutes.

Preston, though, hit back and Everton were glad that Neil Dougans effort was ruled out for offside, while the Preston forward also headed against the woodwork soon after.

Everton skipper Jose Baxter fired over. But the visitors finally took the lead on the half-hour mark, when Adam Forshaws free-kick was headed towards goal by Shane Duffy and German centre-back Shkodran Mustafi fired home.

On 37 minutes Baxter had a free-kick tipped over by Comrie, while at the other end Everton keeper Adam Davies saved from Proctor.

In the second half Everton pressed to seal the tie and with 20 minutes left they grabbed a second from the penalty spot. Hallum Hope got in on the end of a James Wallace through-ball, but was brought down. From the resultant spot-kick Duffy fired home straight down the middle of the goal.

Six minutes later Craig's corner deflected off James Wallace and fell perfectly for midfielder Barkley to slam home Evertons third into the top corner.

Sam Hart hit Evertons bar with a free-kick with seven minutes left, but they held on for comfortable victory.

Everton began brightly and right-back Aristote Nsiala just couldnt get in on the end of a Baxter free-kick. Everton went close again when Nathan Craig saw a decent shot tipped wide by Rovers keeper Josh Swann. Tom Donegan also fired just wide and Conor McAleny was also denied by keeper Swann.

Everton continued to press and got their reward four minutes before half-time. Baxters superb free-kick was met by Shane Duffy, who headed home the opening goal and the first Blackburn had conceded in this seasons FA Youth Cup.

Early in the second period Everton almost gave themselves a 2-0 but Nsialas header was hacked off the line by a home defender. The play was switching from end to end and Everton keeper Adam Davies and Duffy were able to stop Tom Hitchcock from grabbing an equaliser on the hour.

They held the lead until there was 10 minutes left of normal time. As the game wore on the home side continued to press and they drew level as captain Hanley did the damage. when Grant Hanley scored for the home side the first goal Everton under-18s had conceded in more than 1,000 minutes of play stretching back to October 10. Everton themselves had also kept three clean sheets en route to the last eight clash.

Both sides had chances to book their place in the semi-finals and two-legged tie with Chelsea, but Rovers substitute Osayaman Osawe scored the crucial strike 12 minutes into extra-time. Everton dominated in the early part of extra-time, but it was Rovers who took the lead 12 minutes in when substitute Osawe coolly slotted home past Davies when one-on-one.

Everton threw on Luke Garbutt and Femi Orenuga replacing Craig and James Wallace, and centre-back Duffy was pushed further forward in a desperate attempt to save the tie. Orenuga set up Duffy, but the Irishman fired wide, while Baxter also went close with a free-kick. But Everton couldnt manage to grab an equaliser.
