Burton Albion 2 - 0 Everton U21s

Everton U21s are on the road this evening but lost to League One Burton Albion's first team at the Pirelli Stadium in the EFL Trophy.

The young Blues struggled to score in their last group game at Doncaster Rovers, and will need to start winning if they are to emulate last season's feat of topping their group.

Burton were well up for this one and took the lead after just 8 minutes. They got their second after 20 minutes with a simple header with much of the game being played in Everton's half. 

Everton slowly improved, Koyate seeing a great close-range header saved by an equally good save low to the giant keeper's right. Kouyate got to shoot a couple more times but could not beat the Jolly Red Giant in the Burton goal.

Here's a link to the live section of the Everton website; but make sure you login (top right) before proceeding.

I'm trying to access the live stream. Despite being an official member and having logged in, the links to the stream go nowhere. Am I missing a trick or is our site just shite?

Brent, thanks for the link but still no joy. Looks like we are struggling on the pitch too. I've had no problems before so I'll contact the official site and see what they say

Piero (2)”Is our site just shite? No mate nowhere as good as that!

I tried earlier on, was asked to reset my password, I reset it two weeks ago, gave up. Fuckin’ divvy for trying to be honest, that’s me Piero not you.

Dave, Mr Kenwright told me he's blocking the awkward mob.

For anyone who couldn't access it, you didn't miss much lads.

I think when I watch these games the argument as to why youth isn't being given a chance with the first team is answered pretty quickly.

None are the required standard unfortunately.

Brent (10), But he let you slip in!! Next time you see Chairman Bill could you give him a a nice kick in the “ you know where’” off me and quite a few more, he’ll understand that you are only the messenger!

I only managed to catch about 20 minutes of it, but as Jim (11) says, none of them looked anywhere near making the step up, apparently Dyche was there and left 5 mins from the end,,, judging from what I saw I'm amazed he hung around for so long, I know Burton are a very physical team but we didnt even manage to play around them

Can Everton not just show stuff on a you tube channel for free.

Stop passing around with online versions that don't work. Take the advertising revenue, and show Everton that's accessible.
