REVENGE will be the aim for Everton’s U-18s when they travel to West Brom on Saturday hoping to make amends for their undeserved defeat by the Midlanders on the first day of the season.
The return trip is the first of three straight away fixtures for Kevin Sheedy’s side and a chance to show how they have progressed since August.
He said: “They were fortunate to beat us with a long ball and goal against the run of play so we’d like to go there and win.
“We missed numerous chances back in the first game but our finishing has improved since then and we go there an improved side.”
Sheedy added that he wants his side to play a passing game. “We play from the back and had twice as many passes as West Ham last weekend. We always encourage the lads to play from the back and through the midfield and it’s nice to do that and get results. We enjoy playing that way.”
