Everton are playing Mansfield Town away tonight, is there any mention of the game being screened live anywhere?

Anthony skipped past FOUR Mansfield players and scored with a great swerving shot, even the Mansfield supporters clapped the goal.

Anthony Gordon above obviously.

Everton leading at half time with that fabulous Gordon goal, although I never saw it.

Both teams have hit the woodwork with great efforts, ours came from a free kick by Evans from way out, just before half time.

Gordon has another good effort brilliantly saved by Stone the Mansfield keeper, early in the second half.

Mike, getting this information off another website.

The attendance at Mansfield tonight is 824, including 55 away fans, don't know how they worked that out but well done you Everton fans.

Sterling James equalises with three minutes to go, looks like the game is going to pens.

Simms substituted not long after coming on, looks like an injury. Seven minutes added on time being played.

Shoot, Dave, knowing your dedication I pictured you at the ground tapping out these updates on a laptop.

I'm smiling at that Mike, the game has gone to pens, Mambula Cameron for Simms, who I think would have been one of the penalty takers.

Everton have won the penalty shoot out 4-1 with successful pens from Evans, Charlsey, Foulds and Marcelo, Tyrer the ‘keeper made a great save from one of the Mansfield pens.

That's one point for the draw and a bonus point for the penalty shoot out win, over all one point lost, Everton can't do anything right at the moment !!! Unsworth out !!!

Sounds like Gordon was brilliant. I wonder if we'll see him in first team this season. Sounds like he can pass, dribble and score so that's 3 things Walcott struggles with!

Thanks for the updates, Dave.

Gordon can pass dribble and score. Will he play in the first team? Nah, not our type of player!

55 away supporters? Probably just parked the bus behind the goal.
